Sayfa 20 - For, don't you mark ? we're made so that we love First when we see them painted, things we have passed Perhaps a hundred times nor cared to see; And so they are better, painted — better to us, Which is the same thing. Art was given for that; God uses us to help each other so, Lending our minds out.
Sayfa 35 - And work all silently And simply," he returned, " as God does all ; Distort our nature never for our work, Nor count our right hands stronger for being hoofs. The man most man, with tenderest human hands, Works best for men, as God in Nazareth.
Sayfa 12 - The first time I read an excellent book, it is to me just as if I had gained a new friend. When I read over a book I have perused before, it resembles the meeting with an old one.
Sayfa 18 - All we have willed or hoped or dreamed of good shall exist; Not its semblance, but itself; no beauty, nor good, nor power Whose voice has gone forth, but each survives for the melodist When eternity affirms the conception of an hour. The high that proved too high, the heroic for earth too hard, The passion that left the ground to lose itself in the sky, Are music sent up to God by the lover and the bard; Enough that he heard it once: we shall hear it by and by.
Sayfa 31 - If this view be true, culture and religion are not, when rightly regarded, two opposite powers, but they are as it were one line with two opposite poles. Start from the manward pole, and go along the line honestly and thoroughly, and you land in the divine one. Start from the divine pole, and carry out all that it implies, and you land in the manward pole, or the perfection of humanity. Ideally considered, then, culture must culminate in religion, and religion must expand into culture.
Sayfa 21 - Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it not.
Sayfa 16 - ... a pursuit of our total perfection by means of getting to know, on all the matters which most concern us, the best which has been thought and said in the world; and through this knowledge, turning a stream of fresh and free thought upon our stock notions and habits...
Sayfa 18 - Art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements in human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye, and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life. "In true Art," says Ruskin, "the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together.
Sayfa 12 - Those authors who appear sometimes to forget they are writers, and remember they are men, will be our favourites. He who writes from the heart, will write to the heart ; every one is enabled to decide on his merits, and they will not be referred to learned heads, or a distant day.
Sayfa 31 - The world's old ; But the old world waits the time to be renewed, Toward which new hearts in individual growth Must quicken, and increase to multitude In new dynasties of the race of men, Developed whence shall grow spontaneously New churches, new economies, new laws Admitting freedom, new societies Excluding falsehood : HE shall make all new.
