Ella Wheeler Wilcox
American Poet, Journalist 1855-19190
It is easy enough to be virtuous When nothing tempts you to stray; When without or within No voice of sin Is luring your soul away. But it is only a negative virtue until it is tried by fire. For the soul that is worth the treasures of the earth is the soul that resists desire.
The conservative who resists change is as valuable as the radical who proposes it.
Sir Walter Scott
British writer and poet 1771-18320
The willow which bends to the tempest, often escapes better than the oak which resists it; and so in great calamities, it sometimes happens that light and frivolous spirits recover their elasticity and presence of mind sooner than those of a loftier character.
