الصفحة 6 - Of nature's womb, that in quaternion run Perpetual circle, multiform, and mix And nourish all things, let your ceaseless change Vary to our great Maker still new praise. Ye mists and exhalations, that now rise From hill or steaming lake, dusky or gray, Till the sun paint your fleecy skirts with gold, In honour to the world's great Author rise...
الصفحة 10 - Coniston Fells, and the level mists, motionless and grey beneath the rose of the moorlands, veil the lower woods, and the sleeping village, and the long lawns by the lake-shore. Oh, that some one had but told me, in my youth, when all my heart seemed to be set on these colours and clouds, that appear for a little while and then vanish away, how little my love of them would serve me, when the silence of lawn and wood in the dews of morning should be completed ; and all my thoughts should be of those...
الصفحة 100 - Such are the lessons of the Liber Studiorum. Silent always with a bitter silence, disdaining to tell his meaning-, when he saw there was no ear to receive it, Turner only indicated this purpose by slight words of contemptuous anger, when he heard of any one's trying to obtain this or the other separate subject as more beantiful than the rest.
الصفحة 103 - Liber Studiorum, except the Via Mala, is one engraved with his own hand, of a single sailor, yet living, dashed in the night against a granite coast, — his body and outstretched hands just seen in the trough of a mountain wave, between it and the overhanging wall of rock, hollow, polished, and pale with dreadful cloud and grasping foam.
الصفحة 96 - All effort in social improvement is paralyzed, because no one has been bold or clear-sighted enough to put and press home this radical question : 'What is indeed the noblest tone and reach of life for men; and how can the possibility of it be extended to the greatest numbers?
الصفحة 38 - No more wonderful drawing, take it all in all, exists, by his hand, than this one, and the sky is the most exquisite in my own entire collection of his drawings. It is quite consummately true, as all things are when they are consummately lovely. It is of course the breaking up of the warm rain-clouds of summer, thunder passing away in the west, the golden light and melting blue mingled with yet falling rain, which troubles the water surface, making it misty altogether, in the shade to the left, but...
الصفحة 18 - ... picture, and a little broken pier running out into the water. For tenderness and beauty this little drawing (which is hardly more than a monochrome, the faint primrose of the sky being the only colour besides brown and grey in the picture) is unsurpassable, and is truly, to quote Mr. Ruskin's Catalogue, inestimable in its quiet tone, and grandeur of form perceived in simple things. But perhaps the greatest charm of "Vevay" lies in the intense feeling of peace and stillness which surrounds the...
الصفحة 25 - Cum sese e pastu referunt et longa canoros Dant per colla modos ; sonat amnis et Asia longe Pulsa palus.
الصفحة 17 - To most men of the age (he was at this time fiveand-twenty) they are entirely delightful and exhilarating : to him they are an unbroken influence of gloomy majesty, making him thenceforth of entirely solemn heart in all his work, and giving him conceptions of the vastness and rock-frame of the earth's mass, which afterwards regulated his design, down even to a roadside bank. Six out of the nine drawings in this group are studies, not made on the spot, but records, for future use, of the actual impression...
الصفحة 92 - The most helpful and sacred work, therefore, which can at present be done for humanity, is to teach people (chiefly by example, as all best teaching must be done) not how "to better themselves,' 1 but how to "satisfy themselves.
