75. lappuse - For forty years his English has been to me a continual delight and astonishment. In the sustained exhibition of certain great qualities clearness, compression, verbal exactness, and unforced and seemingly unconscious felicity of phrasing he is, in my belief, without his peer in the English-writing world.
75. lappuse - Whenever we come upon one of those intensely right words in a book or a newspaper the resulting effect is physical as well as spiritual, and electrically prompt...
261. lappuse - I slept, and dreamed that life was beauty; I woke, and found that life was duty. Was thy dream then a shadowy lie? Toil on, sad heart, courageously, And thou shalt find thy dream to be A noonday light and truth to thee...
4. lappuse - University recognizes no real antagonism between literature and science, and consents to no such narrow alternatives as mathematics or classics, science or metaphysics. We would have them all, and at their best. To observe keenly, to reason soundly, and to imagine vividly are operations as essential as that of clear and forcible expression; and to develop one of these faculties it is not necessary to repress and dwarf the others. A university is not closely concerned with the applications of knowledge...
161. lappuse - ... us will ever see a man like William James again: there is no doubt about that. And yet it is hard to state what it was in him that gave him either his charm or his power, what it was that penetrated and influenced us, what it is that we lack and feel the need of, now that he has so unexpectedly and incredibly died. I always thought that William James would continue forever; and I relied upon his sanctity as if it were sunlight. I should not have been abashed at being discovered in some mean action...
278. lappuse - ... lectures, which were concerned especially with the Colonial period. When Fiske settled down deliberately to his life-work, he found that he could make the lectures subservient to his publications. He describes his method of doing this as follows : " I look it up or investigate it and then write an essay or lecture on the subject. That serves as a preliminary statement either of a large subject or of special points. It is a help to me to try to state the case. I never publish anything after this...
75. lappuse - There are others who exhibit those great qualities as greatly as does he, but only by intervaled distributions of rich moonlight, with stretches of veiled and dimmer landscape between; whereas Howells's moon sails cloudless skies all night and all the nights.
210. lappuse - He was sitting in the old equity courtroom in Court Square, and I remember thinking at the time, as I still think, that he represented in the superlative degree my notion of the proper bearing and conduct of a judge. Distinguished in person, with the look of race in his countenance which in more ways than one suggested a resemblance to that first Endicott to whom Massachusetts owes so much, he sat without a thought of self, without even the unconscious pride or aloofness which seemed, nay, was, his...
153. lappuse - ... kind, that he took up or looked at or played with ? failing as I did more than ever, at the time I speak of, of the least glimpse of his being below an occasion. Whatever he played with or worked at entered at once into his intelligence, his talk, his humour, as with the action of colouring-matter dropped into water or that of the turning-on of a light within a window. Occasions waited on him, had always done so, to my view ; and there he was, that springtime, on a level with them all : the...
75. lappuse - He seems to be almost always able to find that elusive and shifty grain of gold, the right word. Others have to put up with approximations, more or less frequently; he has better luck. To me, the others are miners working with the...
