William Howells

American writer and critic
In Europe life is histrionic and dramatized, and in America, except when it is trying to be European, it is direct and sincere.More William Howells quotes [08/31/2011 08:08:00]
Lord, for the erring thought
Not unto evil wrought:
Lord, for the wicked will
Betrayed, and baffled still:
For the heart from itself kept,
Our thanksgiving accept.
For ignorant hopes that were
Broken to our blind prayer:
For pain, death, sorrow, sent
Unto our chastisement:
For all loss of seeming good,
Quicken our gratitude.More William Howells quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I wonder why we hate the past so.More William Howells quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

While the bobolinks are singing?More William Howells quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
