Creative Quotations from . . .
Matthew Arnold
(1822-1888) born on
Dec 24
English poet, critic. He was an Oxford professor, known for his poem "Dover Beach," 1853 and as a crusader for classicism.
And thou, who didst the stars and sunbeams know,
Self-schooled, self-scanned, self-honoured, self-secure
Didst tread on earth unguessed at. Better so!

But there remains the question: what righteousness really is. The method and secret and sweet reasonableness of Jesus.
Miracles do not happen.
Let the long contention cease!
Geese are swans, and swans are geese.
Nor bring to see me cease to live,
Some doctor full of phrase and fame,
To shake his sapient head, and give
The ill he cannot cure a name.
