Monuments are the grappling-irons that bind one generation to another
To be an agreeable guest one need only enjoy oneself
The man of imagination who is untrained (unlearned, uneducated, undisciplined) has wings and no feet.
Space is the stature of God.
Drawing is speaking to the eye talking is painting to the ear.
Monuments are the grappling-irons that bind one generation to another.
One who has imagination without learning has wings without feet.
Our ideals, like pictures, are made from lights and shadows.
There is always some frivolity in excellent minds they have wings to rise, but also stray.
We always believe God is like ourselves, the indulgent think him indulgent and the stern, terrible.
The mind's direction is more important than its progress.
We do not do well except when we know where the best is and when we are assured that we have touched it and hold its power within us.
Without duty, life is sort of boneless it cannot hold itself together.
Who ever has no fixed opinions has no constant feelings.
Be charitable and indulge to everyone, but thyself.
All that is good in man lies in youthful feeling and mature thought
There was a time when the world acted on books now books act on the world.
Space is to place as eternity is to time.
What is true by lamplight is not always true by sunlight.
The essential thing is not that there be many truths in a work, but that no truth be abused.
Virtue by calculation is the virtue of vice
Old age deprives the intelligent man only of qualities useless to wisdom
Without the spiritual world the material world is a disheartening enigma.
The passions of the young are vices in the old.
A part of kindness consists in loving people more than they deserve.
