Ella Wheeler Wilcox Quotes and Sayings
Quotes by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I hope you like these Ella Wheeler Wilcox quotes from my collection of quotes about life.

And if we go amiss
We learn at least which path is wrong,
And there is gain in this.
We do not always win the race
By only running right;
We have to tread the mountain's base
Before we reach its height.

There are those who will never admit it.

if you first get to know who you are and are willing

or what harm is caused by its water.
The River is the River, and that is all there is to it.
