A. C. Benson

From Quotes
In Texas, years ago, almost all of the oil came from surface operations. Then someone got the idea that there were greater sources of supply deeper down. A well was drilled five thousand feet deep. The result? A gusher. Too many of us operate on the surface. We never go deep enough to find supernatural resources. The result is, we never operate at our best. More time and investment is involved to go deep but a gusher will pay off.

Watersprings (1902)

  • "I must consider," said Monica with a smile, "but one can't do these things offhand--that is worse than doing nothing. I'll tell you what to do NOW. Why not go and stay with Aunt Anne? She would like to see you, I know, and I have always thought it rather lazy of you not to go there--she is rather a remarkable woman, and it's a pretty country. Have you ever been there?"

The Isles of Sunset (1904)

  • Let those whose Hearts and Hands are strong
    Tell eager Tales of mighty Deeds;
    Enough if my sequestered song
    To hush'd and twilight Gardens leads!

    Clear Waters, drawn from secret Wells
    Perchance may fevered Lips assuage;
    The Tales an elder Pilgrim tells
    To such as go on Pilgrimage.

    Such the soft Path my Words would trace,
    Thus with the moving Waters move;
    So leave, across the Ocean's Face,
    A glimmering Stair to Hope and Love.
