Page 34 - ... education, wisdom that follows practical experience, personal independence and self-respect befitting men who acknowledge no superior, self-control to replace that external control which a democracy rejects, respect for law, obedience to the lawful expressions of the public will, consideration for the opinions and interests of others equally entitled to a voice in the state, loyalty to that abstract conception — one's country — as inspiring as that loyalty to personal sovereigns which has...
Page 37 - ¡Descanse tranquilo, tras tanto penar! Y le envidian al triste viajero cuando cruza la tierra veloz . . . ¡Ay!, ¡no saben que dentro del alma existe un vacío do falta el amor!

Busca ansioso doquiera la dicha Y la dicha se aleja fugaz: ¡Vana sombra que burla su anhelo!... ¡Por ella el viajero se lanza a la mar! Impelido por mano invisible Vagara confín en confín; Los recuerdos le harán compañía De seres queridos, de un día feliz. Una tumba quizá en el desierto Hallará, dulce asilo de paz, De su patria y del mundo olvidado...
Page 35 - ... satisfactory reply. SEC. 9.

Page 31 - I'll return, overburdened with care; The heart's dearest solace will smile on me there; No more from that cottage again will I roam ; Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.
Page 34 - The first fruits of democracy are many of them crude and unlovely; its mistakes are many, its partial failures many, its sins not few. Capacity for self-government does not come to man by nature. It is an art to be learned, and it is also an expression of character to be developed among all the thousands of men who exercise popular sovereignty.
Page 32 - If a man does not have belief and enthusiasm, the chances are small indeed that he will ever do a man's work in the world ; and the paper or the college which, by its general course, tends to eradicate this power of belief and enthusiasm, this desire for work, has rendered to the young men under its influence the worst service it could possibly render.
