עמוד 614 - How shall we pass most swiftly from point to point, and be present always at the focus where the greatest number of vital forces unite in their purest energy? To burn always with this hard, gemlike flame, to maintain this ecstasy, is success in life.
עמוד 547 - What though the field be lost? All is not lost; the unconquerable will, And study of revenge, immortal hate, And courage never to submit or yield: And what is else not to be overcome?
עמוד 559 - And for the generality of men there will be found, I say, to arise, when they have duly taken in the proposition that their ancestor was " a hairy quadruped furnished with a tail and pointed ears, probably arboreal in his habits...
עמוד 393 - Sweat of the brow ; and up from that to sweat of the brain, sweat of the heart...
עמוד 387 - FOE there is a perennial nobleness, and even sacredness. in Work. Were he never so benighted, forgetful of his high calling, there is always hope in a man that actually and earnestly works: in Idleness alone is there perpetual despair.

עמוד 374 - We cannot look, however imperfectly, upon a great man, without gaining something by him. He is the living light-fountain, which it is good and pleasant to be near. The light which enlightens, which has enlightened the darkness of the world; and this not as a kindled lamp only, but rather as a natural luminary shining by the gift of Heaven; a flowing light-fountain, as I say, of native original insight, of manhood and heroic nobleness ;— in whose ZJ radiance all souls feel that it is well with them.
עמוד 588 - In other words, education is the instruction of the intellect in the laws of Nature, under which name I include not merely things and their forces, but men and their ways; and the fashioning of the affections and of the will into an earnest and loving desire to move in harmony with those laws.
