From Quotes
Love is swift, sincere, pious, joyful, generous, strong, patient, faithful, prudent, long-suffering, courageous, and never seeking its own; for wheresoever a person seeketh his own, there he falleth from love.

Park Benjamin, Sr. (1809–1864), was an American poet, editor and founder of several newspapers.


  • I’m king of the dead—and I make my throne
    On a monument slab of marble cold;
    And my scepter of rule is the spade I hold:
    Come they from cottage or come they from hall,
    Mankind are my subjects, all, all, all!
    Let them loiter in pleasure or toilfully spin—
    I gather them in, I gather them in!
    • The Old Sexton.
  • Flowers are Love’s truest language.
    • Sonnet.
