Page 69 - That man, I think, has had a liberal education who has been so trained in youth that his body is the ready servant of his will, and does with ease and pleasure all the work that, as a mechanism, it is capable of; whose intellect is a clear, cold, logic engine, with all its parts of equal strength, and in smooth working order; ready, like a steam engine, to be turned to any kind of work...
Page 316 - And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings ; There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet's wings.

Page 12 - If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost ; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
Page 123 - Well I know who'll take the credit — all the clever chaps that followed — Came, a dozen men together — never knew my desert fears; Tracked me by the camps I'd quitted, used the waterholes I'd hollowed. They'll go back and do the talking. They'll be called the Pioneers!
Page 138 - The nonchalance of boys who are sure of a dinner, and would disdain as much as a lord to do or say aught to conciliate one, is the healthy attitude of human nature.
Page 113 - In the elder days of Art, Builders -wrought with greatest care Each minute and unseen part ; For the gods see everywhere.
