    We know not what it is, dear, this sleep so deep and still;

    The strange white solitude of peace that settles over all.
    Mary Mapes Dodge (1831–1905)

They do not in the least teach the divine view of nature, but the popular view, or rather the popular method of studying nature, and make haste to conduct the persevering pupil only into that dilemma where the professors always dwell.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... we all know the wag’s definition of a philanthropist: a man whose charity increases directly as the square of the distance.
