Pagina 427 - When I look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies in me; when I read the epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinate desire goes out...
Pagina 168 - To coal and iron mines, to freight trains, to fishing fleets in December, to dishwashing, clothes-washing and windowwashing, to road-building and tunnel-making, to foundries and stoke-holes, and to the frames of skyscrapers would our gilded youths be drafted off, according to their choice, to get the childishness knocked out of them and to come back into society with healthier sympathies and soberer ideas.
Pagina 424 - Memory and her siren daughters ; but by devout prayer to that Eternal Spirit who can enrich with all utterance and knowledge, and sends out his seraphim with the hallowed fire of his altar to touch and purify the lips of whom He pleases.

I could not but look upon these registers of existence, whether of brass or marble, as a kind of satire upon the departed persons; who had left no other memorial of them, but that they were born and that they died.
Pagina 427 - When I see kings lying by those who deposed them, when I consider rival wits placed side by side, or the holy men that divided the world with their contests and disputes, I reflect with sorrow and astonishment on the little competitions, factions, and debates of mankind.
Pagina 425 - With equal foot, rich friend, impartial fate Knocks at the cottage and the palace gate ; Life's span forbids thee to extend thy cares, And stretch thy hopes beyond thy years ; Night soon will seize, and you must quickly go To storied ghosts, and Pluto's house below.
