April 9.

Pure as the charities above
Rise the sweet sympathies of love,
And closer ties than those of life
Unite the husband to the wife.

John Logan.

Of all the paths that lead to a woman's love
Pity's the straightest.

Beaumont and Fletcher.

April 11.
You say, sir, once a wit allow'd
A woman to be like a cloud ;
Accept a simile as soon
Between a woman, and the moon :
For let mankind say what they will,
The sex are heavenly bodies still.

James Whyte.
For fools admire, but men of sense approve.

Pope. April 12.

But thou and thine shall know no blight

Whatever fate on me may fall,
For Heaven in sunshine will requite
The kind--and thee the most of all.

Byron. What is mine is yours, and what is yours is mine.


(Measure for Measure).

April 12.

To think that a beauty so gay,

So kind and so constant would prove ;
Or go clad like our maidens in grey,
Or live in a cottage on love.

So we grew together
Like to a double cherry, seeming parted.

Shakespeare (Midsummer Night's Dream).

April 14.

O! my love's like a red, red rose,

That's newly sprung in June ;
O! my love's like the melodie

That's sweetly played in tune.


Oh! it is great and wise and good to love."

Westland Marston, LL.D.

April 15.
And did'st thou know the comfort of two hearts
In one delicious harmony united,
As to joy one joy, and think both one thought,
Live both one life-and there is double life.

George Chapman.
I am happy, I am happy,
As the lilies of the prairie,
When they feel the dew upon them.


(Song of Hiawatha).
