A Quote by Horace Mann on blindness, colors, future, good, happiness, impulses, obedience, principles, sacrifice, and present

In vain do they talk of happiness who never subdued an impulse in obedience to a principle. He who never sacrificed a present to a future good, or a personal to a general one, can speak of happiness only as the blind speak of color.

A Quote by Henry van Dyke on birds, colors, dreams, faith, feeling, god, knowledge, meaning, thought, understanding, and universe

We may be able to tell how many stars are in the Milky Way; we may be able to count the petals of every flower, and number the bones of every bird; but unless faith leads us to a deeper understanding, a more reverent comprehension of the significance of the universe, God can be no more pleased with our knowledge than the painter is pleased with the fly which touches his picture with its feelers, and sips the varnish from the surface, and dies without dreaming of the meaning, thought, feeling, embodied in the colors.

Henry van Dyke (1852 - 1933)
