Pàgina 221 - Pipe to the spirit ditties of no tone: Fair youth, beneath the trees, thou canst not leave Thy song, nor ever can those trees be bare; Bold Lover, never, never canst thou kiss, Though winning near the goal — yet, do not grieve; She cannot fade, though thou hast not thy bliss, For ever wilt thou love, and she be fair!
Pàgina 137 - And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind : and God saw that it was good.

Poetry and elocution of every sort make use of signs, but those signs are arbitrary and conventional : the sculptor employs the representation of the thing itself; but still as a means to a higher end, — as a gradual ascent always advancing towards fanltless form and perfect beanty.
Pàgina 109 - Whether in earth layd up in secret store, Or else in heaven, that no man may it see With sinfull eyes, for feare it to deflore, Is perfect Beautie, which all men adore; Whose face and feature doth so much excell All mortal sence, that none the same may tell.
Pàgina 2 - Esquire, nominated for life. The Professor is required to give annually in the University, in full term, and free of charge as regards Members of the University, a Course of not less than Twelve Lectures on the History, Theory, and Practice of the Fine Arts, or of some section or sections of them.
