A star for every state, and a state for every star. Robert C. Winthrop
A star is beautiful; it affords pleasure, not from what it is to do, or to give, but simply by being what it is. It befits the heavens; it has congruity with the mighty space in which it dwells. It has repose; no force disturbs its eternal peace. It has freedom; no obstruction lies between it and infinity. Carlyle

A statue lies hid in a block of marble, and the art of the statuary only clears away the superfluous matter and removes the rubbish. The figure is in the stone; the sculptor only finds it. What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul. The philosopher, the saint, or the hero, - the wise, the good, or the great man, - very often lies hid and concealed in a plebeian, which a proper education might have disinterred, and have brought to light. Addison
A steady hand in military affairs is more requisite than in peace, because an error committed in war may prove irremediable. Bacon

A step, A single step, that freed me from the skirts Of the blind vapor, opened to my view Glory beyond all glory ever seen By waking sense or by the dreaming soul! The appearance, instantaneously disclosed Was of a mighty city,--boldly say A wilderness of building, sinking far And self-withdrawn into a boundless depth, Far sinking into splendor,--without end! Fabric it seemed of diamond and of gold, With alabaster domes, and silver spires, And blazing terrace upon terrace, high Uplifted; here, serene pavilions bright, In avenues disposed; there, towers begirt With battlements that on their restless fronts Bore stars,--illumination of all gems! The Excursion, Bk. II, W. WORDSWORTH.

A storm-cloud lurid with lightning, And a cry of lamentation, Repeated and again repeated, Deep and loud As the reverberation Of cloud answering unto cloud, Swells and rolls away in the distance, As if the sheeted Lightning retreated, Baffled and thwarted by the wind's resistance. Longfellow
A story and a ball of snow Gather substance as they go.

A story without a moral is like a meal without a sweet dish. Yiddish] A mayse on a moshl iz vi a moltsayt on a tsimes.
A story without an author is not worth listening to.
A story, in which native humor reigns, Is often useful, always entertains; A graver fact enlisted on your side May furnish illustration, well applied; But sedentary weavers of long tales Give me the fidgets, and my patience fails. 'Tis the most asinine employ on earth, To hear them tell of parentage and birth, And echo conversations dull and dry, Embellish'd with, - He said, - and, So said I. Cowper
