For there is no heroic poem in the world but is at bottom a biography, the life of a man; also, it may be said, there is no life of a man, faithfully recorded, but is a heroic poem of its sort, rhymed or unrhymed.
      - Sir Walter Scott--London and Westminster Review
        [Poetry]

A certain man has called us, "of all peoples the wisest in action," but he added, "the stupidest in speech."
      - The Nigger Question [England]

Out of Eternity
  The new Day is born;
    Into Eternity
      At night with return.
      - To-day [Today]

So here hath been dawning
  Another blue day;
    Think, wilt thou let it
      Slip useless away?
        Out of eternity
          This new day is born,
            Into eternity
              At night will return.
      - To-day [Day]

What gained we, little moth? Thy ashes,
  Thy one brief parting pang may show:
    And withering thoughts for soul that dashes,
      From deep to deep, are but a death more slow.
      - Tragedy of the Night Moth (st. 14) [Moths]

For the eye of the intellect "sees in all objects what it brought with it the means of seeing."
      - Varnhagen Von Ense's Memoirs--London and Westminster Review
        [Intellect]
