Page 129 - We search the world for truth ; we cull The good, the pure, the beautiful, From graven stone and written scroll, From all old flower-fields of the soul ; And, weary seekers of the best, We come back laden from our quest, To find that all the sages said Is in the Book our mothers read...
Page 14 - Indians; we explore the heavens above, the earth beneath, and the waters under the earth — all these we do, and much more without the waving of bloody shirts or the planting of party platforms.
Page 140 - Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage ; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Page 148 - Let knowledge grow from more to more, But more of reverence in us dwell; That mind and soul, according well, May make one music as before, But vaster.
Page 112 - Speak to Him thou for He hears, and Spirit with Spirit can meet — Closer is He than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.
