Daily Dose

From The Life of John Sterling, by Thomas Carlyle


"To the man himself Nature had given, in high measure, the seeds of a noble endowment; and to unfold it had been forbidden him. A subtle lynx-eyed intellect, tremulous pious sensibility to all good and all beautiful; truly a ray of empyrean light; -- but embedded in such laxity of character, in such indolences and esuriences as had made strange work of it."

From the chapter, Coleridge.
