WHAT MAY BE ACCOMPLISHED IN A LIFETIME.
“Earnestness alone makes life eternity.”—CARLYLE.
“He was a being of deep reflection-one
That studied nature with intensest eye;
Watching the works of air, earth, sea, and sun,-
Their motion, altitude, their form, their dye-
Cause and effect. The elements which run,
Or stagnant are, he traced to their source,
With vivid study, till his pencil makes
A perfect likeness; or by fancy's force,
A new creation in his heart he takes,
And matches nature's progress in his course
Towards glory. In the abstractions of the mind,
Harmony, beauty, and identity,
His genius, like the summer sun, was shrined,
Till union and perfection he could see.”
ROBERT HARDWICKE, 192, PICCADILLY.
