How oft when thou, my music, music play'st,
Upon that blessed wood whose motion sounds
With thy sweet fingers when thou gently sway'st
The wiry concord that mine ear confounds,
Do I envy those jacks that nimble leap,
To kiss the tender inward of thy hand,
Whilst my poor lips which should that harvest reap,
At the wood's boldness by thee blushing stand!
To be so tickled, they would change their state
And situation with those dancing chips,
O'er whom thy fingers walk with gentle gait,
Making dead wood more bless'd than living lips.
Since saucy jacks so happy are in this,
Give them thy fingers, me thy lips to kiss.
And his heart was stirred, it felt a father's kindness: such an emotion as the possessor of beauty can
inspire in one who offered himself up in spirit to create beauty. -Thomas Mann, Death in VeniceIt is not sufficient to see and to know the beauty of a work. We must feel and be affected by it.
-Voltaire, Taste, 1764
Founding Fathers Quotes
A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of
the common enemy. While the people are virtuous they cannot be subdued; but when once they lose their virtue then will be
ready to surrender their liberties to the first external or internal invader.
Samuel Adams, letter to James Warren, February 12, 1779
