I shall therefore treat therein of the power of the reason, showing how far the reason can control the emotions, and what is the nature of Mental Freedom or Blessedness; we shall then be able to see, how much more powerful the wise man is than the ignorant. It is no part of my design to point out the method and means whereby the understanding may be perfected, nor ...

Thyrsis, A Monody

By: Matthew Arnold

Poetry

Excerpt: HOW changed is here each spot man makes or fills! // In the two Hinkseys nothing keeps the same; // The village street its haunted mansion lacks, // And from the sign is gone Sibylla's name, // And from the roofs the twisted chimney-stacks- // Are ye too changed, ye hills? // See, 'tis no foot of unfamiliar men // To-night from Oxford up your pathway strays! // Here came I often, often, in old days- // Thyrsis and I; we still had Thyrsis then. // Runs it not her...

Poetry

Excerpt: The Buddha, known to men by many names - // Siddartha, Sakya, Muni, Blessed One,- // Sat in the forest, as had been his wont // These many years since he attained perfection; // In silent thought, abstraction, purity, // His eyes fixed on the Lotus in his hand, // He meditated on the perfect Life, // While his disciples, sitting round him, waited // His words of teaching, every syllable // More and more precious as the Master gently // Warned them how near was c...
