  • Idealism is like a castle in the air if it is not based on a solid foundation of social and political realism.
  • If a man is not faithful to his own individuality, he cannot be loyal to anything.
  • Nations, like plants and human beings, grow. And if the development is thwarted they are dwarfed and overshadowed.
  • Upon the clothes behind the tenement, That hang like ghosts suspended from the lines, Linking each flat, but to each indifferent, Incongruous and strange the moonlight shines.
