Excerpt: ... ft a Strong Bits on pinions Jfrcc 'By Walt Whitman (See pages 174, 268, 578, 726) BEAUTIFUL World of new, superber Birth, that rises to my eyes, Like a limitless golden cloud, filling the western sky.... Thou Wonder World, yet undefined, unformed--neither do I define thee; How can I pierce the unpenetrable blank of the future?

No power has called on man to arise and enter upon the possession of this kingdom--the "Kingdom of Man" foreseen by Francis Bacon and pictured by him to an admiring but incredulous age with all the fervor and picturesque detail of which he was capable.

Jack London said "no person, no matter how soft and secluded his own life has been, can read this holy book and not be aware that the world is filled with a vast mass of unfairness, cruelty, and suffering. He will find that it has been observed, during all the ages, by the thinkers, the seers, the poets and the philosophers." This book collects bits of their writings and lets you travel through history.
