Creative Quotations from . . .
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
(1850-1919) born on
Nov 05
US writer, poet, journalist. She wrote 40 volumes of sentimental verse including "Solitude."
The splendid discontent of God
With chaos made the world.

There is new strength, repose of mind, and inspiration in fresh apparel.
One ship drives east and another drives west
With the selfsame winds that flow.
'Tis the set of sails and not the gales
Which tells us the way to go.
Tis easy enough to be pleasant,
When life flows along like a song;
But the man worth while is the one who will smile
When everything goes dead wrong.
Laugh, and the world laughs with you;
Weep, and you weep alone;
For the sad old earth must borrow its mirth,
But has trouble enough of its own.
