Stran 128 - SONG. WHEN the voices of children are heard on the green And laughing is heard on the hill, My heart is at rest within my breast, And everything else is still. Then come home, my children, the sun is gone ' down, And the dews of night arise ; Come, come, leave off play, and let us away Till the morning appears in the skies.
Stran 62 - Art is a human activity, consisting in this, that one man consciously, by means of certain external signs, hands on to others feelings he has lived through, and that other people are infected by these feelings, and also experience them.
Stran 126 - The town has found out different ways To praise its different Lears; To Barry it gives loud huzzas, To Garrick only tears. " A king ? Aye, every inch a king, Such Barry doth appear; But Garrick's quite another thing — He's every inch King Lear.

Until there was found among them one, differing from the rest, whose pursuits attracted him not, and so he stayed by the tents with the women, and traced strange devices with a burnt stick upon a gourd. This man, who took no joy in the ways of his brethren — who cared not for conquest, and fretted in the field —...

And now the heroes filled from the jugs and drank from the bowls - with understanding - noting the glare of their new bravery, and taking pride in its worth. And the people - this time - had much to say in the matter and all were satisfied. And Birmingham and Manchester arose in their might - and Art was relegated to the curiosity shop.
