JOHN STUART BLACKIE
Scottish classical scholar and writer
(1809 - 1895)

Creation is the production of order. What a simple, but, at the same time, comprehensive and pregnant principle is here! Plato could tell his disciples no ultimate truth of more pervading significance. Order is the law of all intelligible existence.
      - [Order]

The highest art is always the most religious; and the greatest artist is always a devout man. A scoffing Raphael or Michael Angelo is not conceivable.
      - [Art]

Rocking on a lazy billow
  With roaming eyes,
    Cushioned on a dreamy pillow,
      Thou art now wise.
        Wake the power within thee slumbering,
          Trim the plot that's in thy keeping,
            Thou wilt bless the task when reaping
              Sweet labour's prize.
      - Address to the Edinburgh Students,
        quoted by Lord Iddlesleigh "Desultory Reading"
        [Students]

Converse with men makes sharp the glittering wit,
  But God to man doth speak in solitude.
      - Sonnet--Highland Solitude [Solitude]
