Quote about Chiefly As: Not only our eternal salvation depends upon our willingness and capacity to forgive wrongs committed against us. Our joy and satisfaction in this life, and our true freedom, depend upon our doing so.

Or was it to relieve the one aggrieved of the destructive burden that resentment and anger lay upon us?

Chiefly As Sayings: What greatly attracted me - and it was the main line of advance of Cubism - was how to give material expression to this new space of which I had an inkling.

Chiefly As Saying: Beauty addresses itself chiefly to sight, but there is a beauty for the hearing too, as in certain combinations so words and in all kinds of music; for melodies and cadences are beautiful; and minds that lift themselves above the realm of sense to a higher order are aware of beauty in the conduct of life, in actions, in character, in the pursuits of the intellect; and there is the beauty of the virtues....

Chiefly As Quote: As for me, my literary theory, like my politics, is based chiefly upon one main idea, to wit, the idea of freedom.

Quote about Chiefly As: Special care should be taken of the health of the inhabitants, which will depend chiefly on the healthiness of the locality and of the quarter to which they are exposed, and secondly on the use of pure water; this latter point is by no means a secondary consideration.

Chiefly As Quote: It is chiefly through books that we enjoy intercourse with the superior minds, and these invaluable means of communication are in reach of all.

They are the voices of the distant and the dead, and make us heirs of the spiritual life of past ages. Books are true levellers. They give to all, who faithfully use them, the society, the spiritual presence of the best and greatest of our race.
