Sivu 454 - In praising, though the praiser sit alone And see the praised far off him, far above. Shakespeare is not our poet, but the world's, Therefore on him no speech ! and brief for thee, Browning! Since Chaucer was alive and hale, No man hath walked along our roads with step So active, so inquiring eye, or tongue So varied in discourse.
Sivu 178 - ACCORDING TO SEASON Talks about the Flowers in the order of their appearance in the Woods and Fields By FRANCES THEODORA PARSONS Author of "How to Know the Wild Flowers," "How to Know the Ferns,
Sivu 481 - First, to attain to the grace of SILENCE. Second, to deem all FAULT-FINDING that does no good a SIN ; and to resolve, when we are happy ourselves, not to poison the atmosphere for our neighbors by calling on them to remark every painful and disagreeable feature of their daily life. Third, to practice the grace and virtue of PRAISE.
Sivu 328 - ... is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what win and preserve the heart, and secure comfort.
Sivu 340 - ... spell and became her friends. It is not fanciful, •with talking beasts ; nor is it merely an exquisite idyl of the beasts themselves. It is an actual romance, in which the animal characters play their parts as naturally as do the human. The atmosphere of the book is enchanting.

A companion volume to...
Sivu 21 - For the white man's papers I had given up my faith in the Great Spirit. For these same papers I had forgotten the healing in trees and brooks. On account of my mother's simple view of life, and my lack of any, I gave her up, also.
Sivu 52 - O this, my Very Dear, I know : Your voice awakes old echoes in my heart ; And things I say to you now are said once more ; And, Sweet, when we two part, I feel I have seen you falter and linger so, So hesitate, and turn, and cling — yet go, As once in some immemorable Before, Once on some fortunate yet thrice-blasted shore. Was it for good...
Sivu 446 - I have grown to believe that he, motionless as he is, does yet live in reality a deeper, more human, and more universal life than the lover who strangles his mistress, the captain who conquers in battle, or "the husband who avenges his honor.
Sivu 41 - In spite of the stares of the wise and the world's derision, Dare travel the star-blazed road, dare follow the Vision. It breaks as a hush on the soul, in the wonder of Youth, And the lyrical dream of the boy is the kingly Truth. The world is a vapor, and only the Vision is real; Yes, nothing can hold against hell but the winged Ideal.
Sivu 98 - Insight, and humour, and the rhythmic roll Of antique lore, his fertile fancies sway'd, And with their various eloquence array'd His sterling English, pure and clean and whole. Fair Nature mourns him now, as well she may So apt a pupil and so close a friend; But what of us, who through his lifelong day Knew him at home, and loved him to the end ? One thing we know: that Love's transcendent name Is link'd with his, and with his honour'd fame.
