Famous quotes containing the words thomson and/or james:

    The mighty river flowing dark and deep,
    With ebb and flood from the remote sea-tides
    Vague-sounding through the City’s sleepless sleep,
    Is named the River of the Suicides;
    —James Thomson (1834–1882)

    Smitten as we are with the vision of social righteousness, a God indifferent to everything but adulation, and full of partiality for his individual favorites, lacks an essential element of largeness.
    —William James (1842–1910)
