    It’s the set of the sails and not the gales,
    That bids them where to go.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850–1919)

    Give us that grand word ‘woman’ once again,
    And let’s have done with ‘lady’; one’s a term
    Full of fine force, strong, beautiful, and firm,
    Fit for the noblest use of tongue or pen;
    And one’s a word for lackeys.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1855–1919)

    All love that has not friendship for its base,
    Is like a mansion built upon the sand.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1855–1919)

    Come, cuddle your head on my shoulder, dear,
    Your head like the golden-rod,
    And we will go sailing away from here
    To the beautiful land of Nod.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1855–1919)

    It’s the set of the soul that decides the goal,
    And not the storms or the strife.
    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850–1919)
