Description

Excerpt from The Recent Growth and Expansion of a Great University No one denies that noble and beautiful buildings, in noble association and well designed for the purposes for which they are intended, become more and more impressive from generation to generation as they become more richly invested with associa tions of human interest. The youth who lives surrounded by beautiful and dignified buildings to which inspiring memories belong, cannot but be strongly affected (less or more conscious ly or unconsciously, according to his native sensibilities and perceptions) by the constant presence of Objects that, while pleasing and refining the eye, cultivate his sense of beauty, and arouse not only poetic emotion, but his sympathy with the spirit and generous efforts of his distant predecessors. His inward nature takes on an impress from the outer sight. He may need help at first to discern the expression, in the work, of the beauty.
