الصفحة 6 - Rising or falling, still advance his praise. His praise, ye winds that from four quarters blow, Breathe soft or loud ; and wave your tops, ye pines, With every plant, in sign of worship wave.
الصفحة 10 - 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...
الصفحة 5 - ... skill. His true master was Dr. Munro: — to the practical teaching of that first patron, and the wise simplicity of the method of water-colour study in which he was disciplined by him, and companioned by Girtin, the healthy and constant development of the youth's power is primarily to be attributed.
الصفحة 98 - 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 101 - 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 94 - 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?' It is answered, broadly and rashly, that wealth is good ; that knowledge is good ; that art is good ; that luxury is good. Whereas none of them are good in the abstract, but good only if rightly received. Nor have any steps...
الصفحة 16 - ... 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 90 - And in order to teach men how to be satisfied, it is necessary fully to understand the art of joy and humble life — this, at present, of all arts or sciences, being the one most needing study. Humble life, that is to say, proposing to itself no future exaltation, but only a sweet continuance ; not excluding the idea of foresight, but wholly of fore-sorrow, and taking no troublous thought...
الصفحة 22 - 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...
