23 ページ - There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy.
231 ページ - All the great men see what they paint before they paint it, -see it in a perfectly passive manner,-cannot help seeing it if they would; whether in their mind's eye, or in bodily fact, does not matter; very often the mental vision is...
231 ページ - Therefore it is, that every system of teaching is false which holds forth "great art" as in any wise to be taught to students, or even to be aimed at by them. Great art is precisely that which never was, nor will be...
174 ページ - Three expressions are requisite for the formation of the Trinity, each presupposing and implying the other two. There must be absolute conecessity between them. Thus, the three principles of our being, life, mind, and soul, form a trinity. Why? Because life and mind are one and the same soul, soul and mind are one and the same life, life and soul are one and the same mind.
31 ページ - When this invisible action is wanting, the trinity in unity is incomplete ; life is unproductive until the three, united in one, bring all things to perfection. Thus each member of the trinity in unity of light has its especial duty to perform, and is in constant operation, visibly or invisibly, although only one power. Even far beyond the visible violet ray of the prismatic spectrum the spirit of actinism prevails ; its chemical influence can be proved to...
252 ページ - Twas evening, and the half-descended sun Tipped with a golden fire the many domes Of Athens, and a yellow atmosphere Lay rich and dusky in the shaded street Through which the captive gazed. He had borne up With a stout heart that long and weary day, Haughtily patient of his many wrongs ; But now he was alone, and from his nerves The needless strength departed, and he leaned Prone on his massy chain, and let his thoughts Throng on him as they would.
78 ページ - Yet observe, I do not mean to speak of the body and soul as separable. The man is made up of both : they are to be raised and glorified together, and all art is an expression of the one, by and through the other. All that I would insist upon is...
190 ページ - ... never let their gestures reveal more than a tenth part of the secret emotion that they apparently feel and would hide from the audience to spare their sensibility. Thus they succeed in stirring all spectators. No, art is not an imitation of nature; art is better than nature. It is nature illuminated. There are two kinds of loud voices; the vocally loud, which is the vulgar voice; and the dynamically loud, which is the powerful voice. A voice, however powerful it may be, should be inferior to...
252 ページ - Burton's Anatomy of Melancholy. There stood an unsold captive in the mart, A gray-haired and majestical old man, Chained to a pillar. It was almost night, And the last seller from his place had gone, And not a sound was heard but of a dog, Crunching beneath the stall a refuse bone, Or the dull echo from the pavement rung, As the faint captive changed his weary feet.
63 ページ - ... sailing that beautiful sea; But I shall name you the fishermen three — Wynken, Blynken, And Nod. Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes, And Nod is a little head; And the wooden shoe that sailed the skies Is a wee one's trundle-bed. So shut your eyes while mother sings Of wonderful sights that be, Certain attitudes, by extending or contracting the muscles, by compelling the breath to come and go more rapidly, by increasing the heart-beats, cause physical interior sensations which are the correspondences...
