Best Quotes by John Vance Cheney (Top 7)

  1. The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears.
  2. The message from the hedge-leaves, Heed it, whoso thou art; Under lowly eaves Lives the happy heart.
  3. A breath, whence no man knows, Swaying the grating weeds, it blows; It comes, it grieves, it goes. Once it rocked the summer rose.
  4. Holding occasion by the hand, Not over nice 'twixt weed and flower, Waiving what none can understand, I make mine hour.
  5. I pour into the world the eternal streams Wan prophets tent beside, and dream their dreams.
  6. No command of art, No toil, can help you hear; Earth's minstrelsy falls clear But on the listening heart.
  7. I question not if thrushes sing, If roses load the air; Beyond my heart I need not reach When all is summer there.
