Siddhartha

By: Hermann Hesse

Im Schatten des Hauses, in der Sonne des Flussufers Booten, im Schatten des Salwaldes, im Schatten genbaumes wuchs Siddhartha auf, der schoene Brahmanen, der junge Falke, zusammen mit seinem Freunde, dem Brahmanensohn. Sonne ?braeunte seine lichten Schultern am Flussufer, beim Bade, bei den heiligen Waschungen, bei den heiligen Opfern. Schatten floss in seine schwarzen Augen im Mangohain, bei den Knabenspielen, beim Gesang der Mutter, bei den heiligen Opfern, bei den Leh...

Siddhartha

By: Hermann Hesse

Mehr als sie alle aber liebte ihn Govinda, sein Freund, der Brahmanensohn. Er liebte Siddharthas Auge und holde Stimme, er liebte seinen Gang und den vollkommenen Anstand seiner Bewegungen, er liebte alles, was Siddhartha tat und sagte, und am meisten liebte er, seinen Geist, seine hohen, feurigen Gedanken, seinen gluehenden Willen, seine hohe Berufung. Govinda wusste: dieser wird kein gemeiner Brahmane werden, kein fauler Opferbeamter, kein habgieriger Haendler mit Zaub...

Siddhartha

By: Herman Hesse

THE SON OF THE BRAHMAN. In the shade of the house, in the sunshine of the riverbank near the boats, in the shade of the Sal-wood forest, in the shade of the fig tree is where Siddhartha grew up, the handsome son of the Brahman, the young falcon, together with his friend Govinda, son of a Brahman. The sun tanned his light shoulders by the banks of the river when bathing, performing the sacred ablutions, the sacred offerings. In the mango grove, shade poured into his black...

The Philosophy of History Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

By: Charles Hegel

Economic Theory Literature

Excerpt: Translator?s Introduction. Hegel?s Lectures on the Philosophy of History are recognized in Germany as a popular introduction to his system; their form is less rigid than the generality of metaphysical treatises, and the illustrations, which occupy a large proportion of the work, are drawn from a field of observation more familiar perhaps, than any other, to those who have not devoted much time to metaphysical studies. One great value of the work is that it prese...

The Early Poems of Alfred Lord Tennyson

By: Alfred Lord Tennyson

Preface: A Critical edition of Tennyson?s poems has long been an acknowledged want. He has taken his place among the English Classics, and as a Classic he is, and will be, studied, seriously and minutely, by many thousands of his countrymen, both in the present generation as well as in future ages. As in the works of his more illustrious brethren, so in his trifles will become subjects of curious interest, and assume an importance of which we have no conception now. Here...

Buddha and Brahma

By: Henry Adams

Poetry

Excerpt: The Buddha, known to men by many names - // Siddartha, Sakya, Muni, Blessed One,- // Sat in the forest, as had been his wont // These many years since he attained perfection; // In silent thought, abstraction, purity, // His eyes fixed on the Lotus in his hand, // He meditated on the perfect Life, // While his disciples, sitting round him, waited // His words of teaching, every syllable // More and more precious as the Master gently // Warned them how near was c...

Jewish History

By: S. M. Dubnow

The author of the present essay, S. M. Dubnow, occupies a well-nigh dominating position in Russian-Jewish literature as an historian and an acute critic. His investigations into the history of the Polish-Russian Jews, especially his achievements in the history of Chassidism, have been of fundamental importance in these departments. What raises Mr. Dubnow far above the status of the professional historian, and awakens the reader?s lively interest in him, is not so much th...

The Life of Charlotte Brontë

By: Elizabeth Claghorn Gaskell

The Leeds and Skipton railway runs along a deep valley of the Aire; a slow and sluggish stream, compared to the neighboring river of Wharfe. Keighley station is on this line of railway, about a quarter of a mile from the town of the same name. The number of inhabitants and the importance of Keighley have been very greatly increased during the last twenty years, owing to the rapidly extended market for worsted manufactures, a branch of industry that mainly employs the fac...

The Oration and Panegyric Addressed to Origen

By: Gregory Thaumaturgus

AN excellent [2] thing has silence proved itself in many another person on many an occasion, and at present it befits myself, too, most especially, who with or without purpose may keep the door of my lips, and feel constrained to be silent. For I am unpractised and unskilled [3] in those beautiful and elegant addresses which are spoken or composed in a regular and unbroken [4] train, in select and well-chosen phrases and words; and it may be that I am less apt by nature ...

A General History for Colleges and High Schools

By: P. V. N. Myers

Preface: This volume is based upon my Ancient History and Mediaeval and Modern History. In some instances I have changed the perspective and the proportions of the narrative; but in the main, the book is constructed upon the same lines as those drawn for the earlier works. In dealing with so wide a range of facts, and tracing so many historic movements, I cannot hope that I have always avoided falling into error. I have, however, taken the greatest care to verify stateme...

Four Years

By: William Butler Yeats

FOUR YEARS, 1887-1891. At the end of the eighties my father and mother, my brother and sisters and myself, all newly arrived from Dublin, were settled in Bedford Park in a red-brick house with several wood mantlepieces copied from marble mantlepieces by the brothers Adam, a balcony, and a little garden shadowed by a great horse-chestnut tree. Years before we had lived there, when the crooked, ostentatiously picturesque streets, with great trees casting great shadows, had...

Buddhist Psalms

By: Shinran Shonin

It is a singular fact that though many of the earlier Buddhist Scriptures have been translated by competent scholars, comparatively little attention has been paid to later Buddhist devotional writings, and this although the developments of Buddhism in China and Japan give them the deepest interest as reflecting the spiritual mind of those two great countries. They cannot, however, be understood without some knowledge of the faith which passed so entirely into their life ...

The Life and Legends of Saint Francis of Assisi

By: Father Candide Chalippe

THE LIFE AND LEGENDS OF SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI. We here offer, to the pious reflections of the faithful, the life of a man who proposed to himself to practise literally the precepts of the Gospel, to conform himself entirely to Jesus Christ crucified, and to inspire the whole world with God?s love. Such a purpose must seem great to all those who can appreciate true grandeur by the light of religion. In its contempt of the goods of the world, it manifests an elevation of...

The Notebook of an English Opium-Eater

By: Thomas de Quincey

It is impossible to conciliate readers of so saturnine and gloomy a class, that they cannot enter with genial sympathy into any gaiety whatever, but, least of all, when the gaiety trespasses a little into the province of the extravagant. In such a case, not to sympathize is not to understand; and the playfulness, which is not relished, becomes flat and insipid, or absolutely without meaning. Fortunately, after all such churls have withdrawn from my audience in high displ...
