In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking,
But now, God knows,
Anything goes.

More quotes by Douglass, Frederick

First Shakespeare sonnets seem meaningless; first Bach fugues, a bore; first differential equations, sheer torture. But training changes the nature of our spiritual experiences. In due course, contact with an obscurely beautiful poem, an elaborate piece of counterpoint or of mathematical reasoning, causes us to feel direct intuitions of beauty and significance. It is the same in the moral world.

Ends and Means (1937)
