    I think I love and reverence all arts equally, only putting my
    own just above the others; because in it I recognize the union
    and culmination of my own. To me it seems as if when God
    conceived the world, that was Poetry; He formed it, and that was
    Sculpture; He colored it, and that was Painting; He peopled it
    with living beings, and that was the grand, divine, eternal
    Drama.

It's very hard! Oh, Dick, my boy,

A little private spouting;

Up comes our master, Bounce! and gives
The tragic Muse a routing.

But as for all the rest,
There's hardly one (I may say none) who stands the Artist's test.
The Artist is a rare, rare breed. There were but two, forsooth,
In all me time (the stage's prime!) and The Other One was Booth.

To wake the soul by tender strokes of art,
To raise the genius, and to mend the heart;
To make mankind, in conscious virtue bold,
Live o'er each scene, and be what they behold--
For this the tragic Muse first trod the stage.
