Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes without the words – and never stops at all.

Excerpted from the poem “Hope” by Emily Dickinson.

 

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune–without the words,
And never stops at all,

 

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

 

I’ve heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

 

—Attributed To Emily Dickinson

To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.

Excerpted from the poem “Auguries of Innocence” by William Blake.

 

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

 

A robin redbreast in a cage
Puts all heaven in a rage.

 

A dove-house fill’d with doves and pigeons
Shudders hell thro’ all its regions.
A dog starv’d at his master’s gate
Predicts the ruin of the state….

 

—Attributed To William Blake
