Legends of the Rhine (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Legends of the Rhine All the thoughts and efforts of the master were aimed at producing still higher and better works of art; he began to brood, secluded him self and fell, in consequence, into tolerably bad repute with his neighbours. But when he at last began to neglect even the common duties of life and derange his household, he lost all reputation and if any body spoke of him, he was called a dreamer, too unpractical for life. Every one thought as is the custom that he could apply to himself the famous saying of the Pharisees: _, I thank God, that i am not as this maul Indeed the master himself, absorbed in his studies and ideas, cared little what his neigh bours thought of him; he seldom went out, and if he did, he was too deeply absorbed in his meditations to notice things about him.
