Famous quotes containing the words van dyke, henry, van and/or dyke:

    I know that Europe’s wonderful, yet something seems to lack;
    The Past is too much with her, and the people looking back.
    —Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)

    To a person uninstructed in natural history, his country or sea-side stroll is a walk through a gallery filled with wonderful works of art, nine-tenths of which have their faces turned to the wall. Teach him something of natural history, and you place in his hands a catalogue of those which are worth turning round.
    —Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    To call a posit a posit is not to patronize it. A posit can be unavoidable except at the cost of other no less artificial expedients. Everything to which we concede existence is a posit from the standpoint of a description of the theory-building process, and simultaneously real from the standpoint of the theory that is being built.
    —Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    This is the gospel of labour, ring it, ye bells of the kirk!
    The Lord of Love came down from above, to live with the men who work.
    This is the rose that He planted, here in the thorn-curst soil:
    Heaven is blest with perfect rest, but the blessing of Earth is toil.
    —Henry Van Dyke (1852–1933)
