„The will to do, the soul to dare“

—  Walter Scott

Canto I, stanza 21.
The Lady of the Lake http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/3011 (1810)
Kontextus: On his bold visage middle age
Had slightly pressed its signet sage,
Yet had not quenched the open truth
And fiery vehemence of youth;
Forward and frolic glee was there,
The will to do, the soul to dare,
The sparkling glance, soon blown to fire,
Of hasty love or headlong ire.

„True love's the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven“

—  Walter Scott, The Lay of the Last Minstrel

Canto V, stanza 13.
The Lay of the Last Minstrel (1805)
Kontextus: True love's the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven:
It is not fantasy's hot fire,
Whose wishes, soon as granted, fly;
It liveth not in fierce desire,
With dead desire it doth not die;
It is the secret sympathy,
The silver link, the silken tie,
Which heart to heart, and mind to mind
In body and in soul can bind.

„Time will rust the sharpest sword,
Time will consume the strongest cord“

—  Walter Scott, Harold the Dauntless

Harold the Dauntless (1817), Canto I, st. 4.
Kontextus: Time will rust the sharpest sword,
Time will consume the strongest cord;
That which molders hemp and steel,
Mortal arm and nerve must feel.

„Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, and men below, and the saints above, for love is heaven, and heaven is love.“

—  Walter Scott, The Lay of the Last Minstrel

Canto III, stanza 2.
The Lay of the Last Minstrel (1805)
Kontextus: In peace, Love tunes the shepherd's reed;
In war, he mounts the warrior's steed;
In halls, in gay attire is seen;
In hamlets, dances on the green.
Love rules the court, the camp, the grove,
And men below, and saints above;
For love is heaven, and heaven is love.

„We are like the herb which flourisheth most when trampled upon“

—  Walter Scott, könyv Ivanhoe

„Silence, maiden; thy tongue outruns thy discretion.“
