1 AWAKE! for Morning in the Bowl of Night Has flung the Stone that puts the Stars to Flight: And Lo! the Hunter of the East has caught The Sultan's Turret in a Noose of Light. ... More > 2 Dreaming when Dawn's Left Hand was in the Sky, I heard a Voice within the Tavern cry, "Awake, my Little Ones, and fill the Cup Before Life's Liquor in its Cup be dry." 3 And as the Cock crew, those who stood before The Tavern shouted — "Open then the Door! You know how little while we have to stay, And once departed, may return no more."< Less

"A THOUSAND books have been written about Japan; but among these, — setting aside artistic publications and works of a purely special character, — the really precious volumes will be... More > found to number scarcely a score. This fact is due to the immense difficulty of perceiving and comprehending what underlies the surface of Japanese life. No work fully interpreting that life, — no work picturing Japan within and without, historically and socially, psychologically and ethically, — can be written for at least another fifty years. So vast and intricate the subject that the united labour of a generation of scholars could not exhaust it, and so difficult that the number of scholars willing to devote their time to it must always be small...."< Less

"When first planning a visit to West China, I set my heart on going in from the west, for I had long wished to see the wild, picturesque country that lies between the Burmese frontier and the... More > Yangtse. Years before, I had looked across the border and promised myself that some day I would find out what lay on the other side. But when the time came the difficulty of securing a Chinese interpreter in Burma forced me to go to Hong Kong, and once there, lack of time made it necessary that I should choose the shortest route into West China, and that was by way of Haiphong and the Red River railway. After all, there were compensations. Even a fleeting vision from the windows of a railway carriage gives some idea of what the French are doing in their great Eastern colony..."< Less

He had learned that in the many combinations in which he found them they spoke in a silent language, spoke in a strange tongue, spoke of wonderful things which a little ape-boy could not by any chance fully understand, arousing his curiosity, stimulating his imagination and filling his soul with a mighty longing for further knowledge.< Less

"You ask me to give you some account of my life — how it was with me, and now in my seventy-sixth year I find myself in the mood to do so... It is mainly the life of a country man and a... More > rather obscure man of letters, lived in eventful times indeed, but largely lived apart from the men and events that have given character to the last three quarters of a century.

My life, like your own, has been along the by-paths rather than along the great public highways. I have known but few great men and have played no part in any great public events — not even in the Civil War which I lived through and in which my duty plainly called me to take part. I am a man who recoils from noise and strife, even from fair competition, and who likes to see his days...by some quiet, congenial occupation."< Less
