Pagina 49 - Secondly, however, we may say, these Historical Novels have taught all men this truth, which looks like a truism, and yet was as good as unknown to writers of history and others, till so taught : that the bygone ages of the world were actually filled by living men, not by protocols, state-papers, controversies and abstractions of men.

Pagina 367 - That not a worm is cloven in vain; That not a moth with vain desire Is shrivel'd in a fruitless fire, Or but subserves another's gain. Behold, we know not anything; I can but trust that good shall fall At last — far off — at last, to all, And every winter change to spring.
Pagina 49 - philosophy teaching by experience' will have to exchange themselves everywhere for direct inspection and embodiment: this, and this only, will be counted experience ; and till once experience have got in, philosophy will reconcile herself to wait at the door.
