CONTAINING

PART IV.

Of Many Things.

BY JOHN RUSKIN, M.A.

THE STONES OF VENICE," 66 THE SEVEN LAMPS OF ARCHITECTURE,"

ETC. ETC.

Of arrogance,

"Accuse me not

If, having walked with Nature,"
And offered, far as frailty would allow,
My heart a daily sacrifice to Truth,

I now affirm of Nature and of Truth,

Whom I have served, that their Divinity

Revolts, offended at the ways of men,
Philosophers, who, though the human soul

Be of a thousand faculties composed,

And twice ten thousand interests, do yet prize
This soul, and the transcendent universe,
No more than as a mirror that reflects
To proud Self-love her own intelligence."

WORDSWORTH.

LONDON:

SMITH, ELDER, AND CO., 65. CORNHILL.
1856.
