Bigotry is the disease of ignorance, of morbid minds; enthusiasm of the free and buoyant. Education and free discussion are the antidotes of both.
Eye hath not seen, tongue hath not told,And ear hath not heard it sung,How buoyant and bold, though it seem to grow old,Is the heart, forever young; —Forever young, — though life's old ageHath every nerve unstrung:The heart, the heart, is a heritageThat keeps the old man young!martin farquhar tupper
I watched them from the window, thy children at their play, And I thought of all my own dear friends, who were far, oh, far away, And childish loves, and childish cares, and a child’s own buoyant gladness Came gushing back again to me with a soft and solemn sadness; And feelings frozen up full long, and thoughts of long ago, Seemed to be thawing at my heart with a warm and sudden flow.arthur hugh clough
A fiery chariot, borne on buoyant pinions, Sweeps near me now! I soon shall ready be To pierce the ether's high, unknown dominions, To reach new spheres of pure activity!
Bigotry is the disease of ignorance, of morbid minds; enthusiasm of the free and buoyant. Education and free discussion are the antidotes of both.thomas jefferson
A harmless hilarity and a buoyant cheerfulness are not infrequent concomitants of genius; and we are never more deceived than when we mistake gravity for greatness , solemnity for science , and pomposity for erudition.Charles Caleb Colton
