Page 196 - WHERE the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depth of truth; Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection; Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit; Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action — Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let...

Page 98 - ... Fiametta, Teresina, They are winding stems of roses, one by one, one by one, Little children, who have never learned to play; Teresina softly crying that her fingers ache to-day; Tiny Fiametta nodding when the twilight slips in, gray. High above the clattering street, ambulance and fire-gong beat, They sit, curling crimson petals, one by one, one by one. Lisabetta, Marianina, Fiametta, Teresina, They have never seen a rosebush nor a dewdrop in the sun.
Page 220 - ... wafts across the seas to all the oppressed of mankind. What, I wonder, do they know of America, who know only America?
