That culture of the imagination, that tenderness for it, which may be necessary in the West, is out of place here ; for this is a society in which, for centuries upon centuries, the imagination has run riot, and much of the intellectual weakness and moral evil which afflict it to this moment, may be traced to imagination having so long usurped the place of reason.
Side 406 - Lives of great men all remind us, We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us Footprints on the sands of time ; " Let us then be up and doing, With a heart for any fate ; Still achieving, still pursuing, Learn to labour and to wait.
