Expect the Dawn

We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves
awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an
infinite expectation of the dawn, which does
not forsake us even in our soundest sleep.
I know of no more encouraging fact than the
unquestionable ability of man to elevate his
life by a conscious endeavour. It is something
to be able to paint a particular picture, or
to carve a statue, and so to make a few
objects beautiful; but it is far more glorious
to carve and paint the very atmosphere and
medium through which we look, which morally
we can do. To affect the quality of the day,
that is the highest of arts.
