Seite 205 - I find this conclusion more impressed upon me, — that the greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, — all in one.
Seite 275 - That Nature is always right, is an assertion, artistically, as untrue, as it is one whose truth is universally taken for granted. A Nature is very rarely right, to such an extent even, that it might almost be said that Nature is usually wrong...
Seite 275 - That nature is always right is an assertion, artistically, as untrue as it is one whose truth is universally taken for granted. Nature is very rarely right — to such an extent, even, that it might almost be said that nature is usually wrong; that is to say, the condition of things that shall bring about the perfection of harmony worthy a picture is rare, and not common at all.
Seite 372 - Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That on and after the passage of this Act, unless otherwise specially provided for in this Act, there shall be levied, collected, and paid upon all articles imported from foreign countries, and mentioned in the schedules herein contained, the rates of duty which are, by the schedules and paragraphs, respectively prescribed, namely: SCHEDULE A.— CHEMICALS, OILS, AND PAINTS.
Seite 127 - EDITOR'S PREFACE IN issuing this volume of a series of Handbooks on the Artistic Crafts, it will be well to state what are our general aims.

Seite 134 - Not even the cry of a sea-mew or kittiwake broke the almost deathlike stillness,—no breath of wind stirred a ripple on the glassy water. The whole scene might well have been the fantastic dream of some imaginative painter, whose ambition soared beyond the limits of human skill.
Seite 275 - Nature contains the elements, in colour and form, of all pictures, as the keyboard contains the notes of all music. But the artist is born to pick, and choose, and group with science, these elements, that the result may be beautiful - as the musician gathers his notes, and forms his chords, until he bring forth from chaos glorious harmony.
Seite 372 - An Act to provide revenue for the Government and to encourage the industries of the United States...
Seite 207 - Every clod feels a stir of might, An instinct within it that reaches and towers, And, groping blindly above it for light, Climbs to a soul in grass and flowers.
