Page 41 - Make me a statue," said the King, "Of marble white as snow ; It must be pure enough to stand Before my throne at my right hand, The niche is waiting — go ! " The sculptor heard the King's command, And went upon his way : He had no marble, but he went, With willing hands, and high intent, To mould his thoughts in clay. Day after day he wrought the clay, But knew not what he wrought ; He sought the help of heart and brain, But could not make the riddle plain, It lay beyond his thought. To-day the...
Page 239 - NO DOUBT but ye are the people, and wisdom shall die with you ! But I have understanding as well as you ; I am not inferior to you: yea, who knoweth not such things as these?
