Trang 247 - The Confessions of a Thug,' &c. &c. Edited by his Daughter. New and cheaper Edition, being the Fourth. Crown 8vo, 6s.
Trang 133 - People are always talking about originality; but what do they mean? As soon as we are born, the world begins to work upon us, and this goes on to the end.
Trang 139 - No productiveness of the highest kind, no remarkable discovery, no great thought which bears fruit and has results, is in the power of any one ; but such things are elevated above all earthly control. Man must consider them as an unexpected gift from above, as pure children of God, which he must receive and venerate with joyful thanks.
Trang 73 - People treat it," said Goethe, " as if that incomprehensible and most high Being, who is even beyond the reach of thought, were only their equal. Otherwise, they would not say the Lord God, the dear God,\ the good God. This expression becomes to them, especially to the clergy, who have it daily in their mouths, a mere phrase, a barren name, to which no thought is attached whatever. If they were impressed by His greatness they would be dumb, and through veneration unwilling to name Him.

Trang 204 - The height charms us, the steps to it do not : with the summit in our eye, we love to walk along the plain. It is but a part of art that can be taught; the artist needs it alL Who knows it half, speaks much, and is always wrong; who knows it wholly, inclines to act, and speaks seldom or late. The former have no secrets and no force : the instruction they can give is like baked bread, savoury and satisfying for a single day ; but flour cannot be sown and seed-corn ought not to be ground.
