Страница 78 - I have eaten your bread and salt, I have drunk your water and wine; The deaths ye died I have watched beside, And the lives that ye led were mine. Was there aught that I did not share In vigil or toil or ease,— One joy or woe that I did not know, Dear hearts across the seas? I have written the tale of our life For a sheltered people's mirth, In jesting guise — but ye are wise, And ye know what the jest is worth.
Страница 99 - I thus drew steadily nearer to that truth, by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two. I say two, because the state of my own knowledge does not pass beyond that point. Others will follow, others will outstrip me on the same lines; and 1 hazard the guess that man will be ultimately known for a mere polity of multifarious, incongruous and independent denizens.
Страница 15 - ... which, descending, he followed his conductor through a long passage to an apartment thrown out, in the rear of the habitation, for the special requirements, as he guessed, of a busy man of letters. St. George was in his shirt-sleeves in the middle of a large, high room — a room without windows, but with a wide skylight at the top, like a place of exhibition. It was furnished as a library, and the serried bookshelves rose to the ceiling, a surface of incomparable tone, produced by dimly-gilt...
Страница 121 - Amoncc the heathy hills and ragged woods, The roaring Foyers pours his mossy floods, Till, full, he dashes on the rocky mounds, Where, through a shapeless breach, his stream resounds. As high in air the bursting torrents flow, As deep recoiling surges foam below, Prone down the rock the whitening sheet descends, And viewless Echo's ear, astonish'd, rends.
Страница 87 - ... strenuously the best that Nature has put in him to do — that I do not begin to look for the one idea which is the inspiration of it. I have watched your life and work here and in London for ten years — your steady, persistent development — and have often wondered what the main-spring was. Now I know it ! Go on, go on, and the very laws of Nature, which are the laws of God, will fight for you...
Страница 129 - Think of our flattering Charley Rich and his set. They are so conceited now that they think all the girls are in love with them. We have to train all the young nobs down with sarcasm before they are endurable. We are onto their style.
Страница 7 - Perhaps he was then. I don't believe that the change is all in us. COREY : I am always a good decade ahead of him in age ; and when I read him I have a vivid impression of looking back on my own experiences and observations. I suspect that he has always written with the utmost fidelity the impressions that the world has made on him. In youth, they were romantic, as they are in all healthy organisms ; in early maturity, they had a little of that cruelty of realism which comes...
Страница 101 - I'll grant that he would like to be only a teller of entrancing tales, but the blood of the preaching Balfours is too much for him, and he moralizes in spite of himself. HYDE (laughing) : It's pretty bad morality often, I'm glad to say. He has a way of making his wicked men far more attractive than his good ones — which is the way of *From Robert Bridges, Overheard in Arcady (London: JM Dent & Co.), 1894.
Страница 77 - I'll always believe that he has the heart of a man and the voice of a poet. The world does not often get the two united with such force. Oh, it is good to read what a strong man has written. Writing is mostly left to the weak who like to talk about their own emotions. Kipling looks at things like a man of action, and that's the great thing in life or letters.
