Seite 217 - BLESSED be God for flowers! For the bright, gentle, holy thoughts, that breathe From out their odorous beauty, like a wreath Of sunshine on life's hours...
Seite 481 - ... when on any given material we impress a predetermined form, not necessarily arising out of the properties of the material ; as when to a mass of wet clay we give whatever shape we wish it to retain when hardened. The organic form, on the other hand, is innate : it shapes, as it develops itself, from within ; and the fulness of its development is one and the same with the perfection of its outward form.
