    The studious class are their own victims; they are thin and pale,
    their feet are cold, their heads are hot, the night is without
    sleep, the day a fear of interruption,--pallor, squalor, hunger,
    and egotism. If you come near them and see what conceits they
    entertain--they are abstractionists, and spend their days and
    nights in dreaming some dream; in expecting the homage of society
    to some precious scheme built on a truth, but destitute of
    proportion in its presentment, of justness in its application,
    and of all energy of will in the schemer to embody and vitalize
    it.

Where should the scholar live? In solitude, or in society? in
the green stillness of the country, where he can hear the heart
of Nature beat, or in the dark, gray town where he can hear and
feel the throbbing heart of man?

A giddy whirlwind's fickle gust,
That lifts a pinch of mortal dust;
A few swift years, and who can show
Which dust was Bill, and which was Joe?
