Last, that it will be primely to the discouragement of all learning, and the stop of truth, not only by disexercising and blunting our abilities in what we know already, but by hindering and cropping the discovery that might be yet further made both in religious and civil wisdom. The light spread upwards from the glass roof making the theatre seem a festive ark, anchored among the hulks of houses, her frail cables of lanterns looping her to her moorings. It is a good odour to breathe. Now,… Continue

I do not mistrust the future; I do not fear what is ahead. The elder boys, of course, will see that this custom is not infringed and I look especially to the prefects and officers of the sodality of Our Blessed Lady and of the sodality of the holy angels to set a good example to their fellow-students.

How far had he walked? What hour was it? There was no human figure near him nor any sound borne to him over the air.

But the stakes for America are never small. And I am not afraid to make a mistake, even a great mistake, a lifelong mistake, and perhaps as long as eternity… Continue

It is now three days more than a hundred years since the adoption of the first written constitution of the United States - the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union. And still you hold our longing gaze With languorous look and lavish limb! Are you not weary of ardent ways? Tell no more of enchanted days. --Hoho! The cinder-path! cried the prefect of studies. "And you can't say I've not been awfully good, can you?" I laid my hand on his shoulder, for, though I felt how much better it… Continue

Yes, and it was not darkness that fell from the air. It was as if what I had yearned for had come at last only to astonish me. Apprehension seems to exist among the people of the Southern States that by the accession of a Republican Administration their property and their peace and personal security are to be endangered. Now let me turn to a task which is the primary responsibility of National Government - the safety and security of our people.…

But he could not: and so he longed for the play and study and prayers to be over and to be in bed. In the name of democracy they speak, warning the people against the influence of wealth and the danger of aristocracy. Those who are selected for a limited time to manage public affairs are still of the people, and may do much by their example to encourage, consistently with the dignity of their official functions, that plain way of life which among their fellow-citizens aids integrity and… Continue

There had been, this evening, after the revelation left me, for an hour, so prostrate--there had been, for either of us, no attendance on any service but a little service of tears and vows, of prayers and promises, a climax to the series of mutual challenges and pledges that had straightway ensued on our retreating together to the schoolroom and shutting ourselves up there to have everything out.

What was prodigious was that at last, by my success, his sense was sealed and his communication stopped: he knew that he was in presence, but knew not of what, and knew still less that I also was and that I did know. The building of such a peace is a bold and solemn purpose. It is the product of centuries. The collisions of party spirit which originate in speculative opinions or in different views of administrative policy are in their nature transitory.…

Stephen sometimes went round with the car which delivered the evening milk and these chilly drives blew away his memory of the filth of the cowyard and he felt no repugnance at seeing the cow hairs and hayseeds on the milkman's coat. The causes of his embitterment were many, remote and near. He stared before him out of his dark flaming eyes, repeating: --Away with God, I say! Dante shoved her chair violently aside and left the table, upsetting her napkin-ring which rolled slowly along the… Continue

Our founders taught us that the preservation of our liberty and our union depends upon responsible citizenship. Stephen's mind halted by instinct, checked by the strange tone and the imagery and by the priest's face which seemed like an unlit lamp or a reflector hung in a false focus.…

Grose listened with dumb emotion; she forbore to ask me what this meaning might be; so that, presently, to put the thing with some coherence and with the mere aid of her presence to my own mind, I went on: "That he's an injury to the others. You can't, you can't!"-- he lay beautifully staring. Night prayers and then bed: he shivered and wanted to yawn. Will we? All the fellows were silent.…

Mike Flynn would stand at the gate near the railway station, watch in hand, while Stephen ran round the track in the style Mike Flynn favoured, his head high lifted, his knees well lifted and his hands held straight down by his sides. Paul's converts; 'tis replied the books were magic, the Syriac so renders them. The malice of evil glittered in their hard eyes, as they moved hither and thither, trailing their long tails behind them.…

Today we invoke those same powers of government to achieve the same objectives. I wandered with that manner, for the next hour or two, all over the place and looked, I have no doubt, as if I were ready for any onset. The letters of the name of Dublin lay heavily upon his mind, pushing one another surlily hither and thither with slow boorish insistence. "Oh, thank God, no!" "And is the record yours? You took the thing down?" "Nothing but the impression.…

He could stand up, put one foot before the other and walk out softly and then run, run, run swiftly through the dark streets. Stephen tried to laugh with them. "I'll tell you if you'll tell ME--" I heard myself say, then heard the tremor in which it broke. Well, I was, strangely, at the helm!

Is that called a funnel? Is it not a tundish? --What is a tundish? --That. The student's body shook all over and, to ease his mirth, he rubbed both his hands delightedly over his groins.

The bell rang and then the classes began to file out of the rooms and along the corridors towards the refectory. "You do know, you dear thing," I replied; "only you haven't my dreadful boldness of mind, and you keep back, out of timidity and modesty and delicacy, even the impression that, in the past, when you had, without my aid, to flounder about in silence, most of all made you miserable.
