  There is so much of good among the worst, so much of evil in the best, such seeming partialities in providence, so many things to lessen and expand, yea. and with all man’s boast, so little real freedom of his will, that to look a little lower than the surface, garb, or dialect, or fashion, thou shalt feebly pronounce for a saint, and faintly condemn for a sinner.    Tupper.  24355

  There is still a real magic in the action and reaction of minds on one another. The casual deliration of a few becomes, by this mysterious reverberation, the frenzy of many; men lose the use, not only of their understandings, but of their bodily senses; while the most obdurate unbelieving hearts melt like the rest in the furnace where all are cast as victims and as fuel.    Carlyle.  24367

  There must always remain something that is antagonistic to good.    Plato.  24377
  There must be a man behind a book.    Emerson.  24378
  There must be hearts which know the depths of our being, and swear by us, even when the whole world forsakes us.    Gutzkow.  24379
  There must be work done by the arms, or none of us would live; and work done by the brains, or the life would not be worth having. And the same men cannot do both.    Ruskin.  24380

  There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, / The earth and every common sight, / To me did seem / Apparelled in celestial light, / The glory and the freshness of a dream. / It is not now as it has been of yore; / Turn wheresoe’er I may, / By night or day, / The things which I have seen, I now can see no more.    Wordsworth.  24398
