„But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays,
Is the word that comes from the heart.“

—  Ella Wheeler Wilcox American author and poet 1850 - 1919

Poetry quotes, New Thought Pastels (1913)
Kontext: p>You may choose your word like a connoisseur,
And polish it up with art,
But the word that sways, and stirs, and stays,
Is the word that comes from the heart.You may work on your word a thousand weeks,
But it will not glow like one
That all unsought, leaps forth white hot,
When the fountains of feeling run.</p
