Page 15 - The ship may sink And I may drink A hasty death in the bitter sea; But all that I leave In the ocean grave Can be slipped and spared, and no loss to me. What care I Though falls the sky, And the shrivelling earth to a cinder turn ? No fires of doom Can ever consume What never was made nor meant to burn. Let go the breath! There is no death To the living soul, nor loss, nor harm. Not of the clod Is the life of God; Let it mount, as it will, from form to form.
Page 15 - Love is and was my Lord and King, And in his presence I attend To hear the tidings of my friend, Which every hour his couriers bring. Love is and was my King and Lord, And will be, tho...
Page 78 - Contrary to the popular notion, the creation of so-called "atmospheric" impression in literature is much easier, and of a lower order of intellect, than to convey in familiar words exactly what was done, and why.

Page 110 - The world looks like a multiplication-table, or a mathematical equation, which, turn it how you will, balances itself. Take what figure you will, its exact value, nor more nor less, still returns to you. Every secret is told, every crime is punished, every virtue rewarded, every wrong redressed, in silence and certainty.
Page 73 - He greets th' embarrassed Gods, nor fears To shake the iron hand of Fate Or match with Destiny for beers. Lo! imperturbable he rules, Unkempt, disreputable, vast — And, in the teeth of all the schools I — I shall save him at the last!
Page 75 - They fade in the light of Their meaning sublime. 'The fiend that man harries Is love of the Best; Yawns the pit of the Dragon, Lit by rays from the Blest. The Lethe of Nature Can't trance him again, Whose soul sees the perfect, Which his eyes seek in vain.

He must, thus, have breadth; an ample, generous assortment of knowledge must be his mental food ; his contacts must be so many and so sure that he will not lose his perspective in his enthusiasm for his special work. But this enthusiasm must rest upon concentrated power, upon mastery in a limited field.
