Thomas Wentworth Higginson, Atlantic Essays, Literature as an art. (search)
any language; each had originally some vivid meaning, but most of them have been worn smooth by passing from hand to hand, and hence the infinite care required in their use. Language, says Max Muller, is a dictionary of faded metaphors ; and every writer who creates a new image, or even reproduces an old one by passing it through a fresh mind, enlarges this vast treasure-house. And this applies not only to words of beauty, but to words of wit. All wit, said Mr. Pitt, is true reasoning ; and Rogers, who preserved this saying, added, that he himself had lived long before making the discovery that wit was truth.

I had a rare blessing of servants in England, and those I brought over were a blessing; but the yons, the Mathers. To these might be added many an obscurer name, preserved in the quaint epitaphs of the Magnalia :--Blackman, in spite of his name, a Nazarene whiter than snow ;--Partridge, a hunted partridge, yet both a dove and an eagle ;--Ezekiel Rogers, a tree of knowledge, whose apples the very children might pluck ;--Nathaniel Rogers, a very lively preacher and a very preaching liver, he loved his church as if it had been his family and he taught his family as if it had been his church ;-
