Matthew Arnold

English poet, critic and teacher
The East bow'd low before the blast,
In patient, deep disdain.
She let the legions thunder past,
And plunged in thought again.More Matthew Arnold quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Now the great winds shoreward blow Now the salt tides seaward flow Now the wild white horses play Champ and chafe and toss in the spray.More Matthew Arnold quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Man errs not that he deems His welfare his true aim, He errs because he dreams The world does but exist that welfare to bestow.More Matthew Arnold quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Culture looks beyond machinery, culture hates hatred; culture has one great passion--the passion for sweetness and light. It has one even yet greater, the passion for making them all prevail. It is not satisfied till we all come to a perfect man; it knows that the sweetness and light of the few must be imperfect until the raw and unkindly masses of humanity are touched with sweetness and light.More Matthew Arnold quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
And we forget because we must and not because we will.More Matthew Arnold quotes [11/14/2011 11:11:45]
