Music is in all growing things; And underneath the silky wings Of smallest insects there is stirred A pulse of air that must be heard; Earth's silence lives, and throbs, and sings.

— George Parsons Lathrop

The most terrific George Parsons Lathrop quotes that will activate your inner potential

In short, realism reveals. Where we thought nothing worthy of notice, it shows everything to be rife with significance.


A nobleness to try for, A name to live and die for.


Realism sets itself at work to consider characters and events which are apparently the most ordinary and uninteresting, in order to extract from these their full value and true meaning. It would apprehend in all particulars the connection between the familiar and the extraordinary, and the seen and unseen of human nature.
