Стр. 32 - If we work upon marble, it will perish ; if we work upon brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples, they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds, if we imbue them with principles, with the just fear of God and love of our fellow-men, we engrave on those tablets something which will brighten to all eternity.
Стр. 3 - The white race has great vigor, capacity and endurance. It has an intensity of will and desire which is controlled by intellectuality. Great things are undertaken readily, but not blindly. It manifests a strong utilitarianism, united with a powerful imagination, which elevates, ennobles and idealizes its practical ideas. The Negro can only imitate, the Chinese only utilize, the work of the white; but the latter is abundantly capable of producing new works. He has as keen a sense of order as the yellow...
Стр. 3 - A fire-mist and a planet, — A crystal and a cell, — A jelly-fish and a saurian, And caves where the cave-men dwell ; Then a sense of law and beauty, And a face turned from the clod,— Some call it Evolution, And others call it God.
Стр. 32 - Knowledge is in every country the surest basis of public happiness. In one in which the measures of government receive their impressions so immediately from the sense of the community as in ours, it is proportionably essential.
Стр. 3 - A haze on the far horizon — The infinite, tender sky — The ripe, rich tint of the cornfields, And the wild geese sailing high — And all over upland and lowland The charm of the golden-rod — Some of us call it autumn, And others call it God.
Стр. 3 - Like tides on a crescent sea-beach, When the moon is new and thin, Into our hearts high yearnings Come welling and surging in : Come from the mystic ocean Whose rim no foot has trod — Some of us call it Longing, And others call it God.
Стр. 58 - The discoveries of genius alone remain ; it is to them we owe all that we now have, they are for all ages and all times ; never young, and never old, they bear the seeds of their own life ; they flow on in a perennial and undying stream ; they are essentially cumulative...
Стр. 14 - The American is a citizen king or nothing. I can conceive of no greater calamity than the assimilation of the Negro into our social and political life as our equal. A mulatto citizenship would be too dear a price to pay even for emancipation.
Стр. 81 - Americo-Liberian towns and settlements with their approximate populations. The enumeration commences with Roberts Port, not far from the western (Sierra Leone) frontier of Liberia, and proceeds northward, southward, and eastward to the French frontier along the Kavalli River: A LIBERIAN COLONEL OF MILITIA.
Стр. 39 - The per cent illiterate has decreased rapidly since 1890 when it was 57.1 per cent. Illiteracy among negroes is about seven times as common as among whites, and this ratio between the races has not altered materially in the last ten years. Illiteracy among southern negroes is more than four times that among southern whites.
