Poetry is simply the most beautiful, impressive, and widely effective mode of saying things.More Matthew Arnold quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
But the idea of science and systematic knowledge is wanting to our whole instruction alike, and not only to that of our business class ... In nothing do England and the Continent at the present moment more strikingly differ than in the prominence which is now given to the idea of science there, and the neglect in which this idea still lies here; a neglect so great that we hardly even know the use of the word science in its strict sense, and only employ it in a secondary and incorrect sense.More Matthew Arnold quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
