And yet it was not so much young as ageless; it seemed to have passed beyond the register and limitations of time.

... far-off glacier glistened harshly in the lucid morning, yet not harshly either, but with the rugged form of a vast antiquity, from which these scarred and grimly austere hills had grown. Here Nature was filled with a sense of triumphant mastery—the mastery of ageless experience. And down the great piles there blew a wind of stirring life, of the composure of great strength, and touched the four, and the man that mounted now was turned to go. A quick good-bye from him to all; a God-speed-you from the Honourable; a wave of the hand between the rider ...

... changing? For a moment, as he went down the silent corridors, lofty as the woods, vocal with faint inscriptions on the uncovered stone, the old human doubt assailed him. The very age of the walls was a protest against the assumption that there is a touchstone that is ageless.

But the gallery emptying itself into a great court open to the blue among graven rafters, St. George ...

Here you call your appearance beauty, your emotions love, your sentiments heroism, your aspirations virtue, ...
