Virginia free pdf Excerpt from Virginia: Address Before the Washington and Jefferson Societies, of the University of Virginia June 30, 1868 The Teachings of Greece came from Olympus, where Hesiod saw palaces fitted for the dwelling and the councils of gods- and from Helicon, whence flowed that Hippoerene which still sends its fertilizing waters over all the realms of human thought and science- and they came out of her deep blue skies, gazing into which Plato was taught, "what worlds and what vast regions hold the immortal mind." Beneath her soft Ionian skies, Homer learned to sing of gods and heroes combatting in the cause of love and honor. It was from Paros and Pentelicus the cold marble sprang to divine forms. In Tempe and Ilyssus Anacreon gathered his myrtle and vine. Demosthenes caught the .lightning which flashed from his lips by those resounding seas which fell upon the shores of Marathon and Salamis and Thermopylae, where Aristides and Themistocles advised, Miltiades commanded, and Leonidas died in the cause of Grecian liberty. The teachings of Rome came from the virtues of two centuries, which have made her name, in all time, the proud synonyme of patriotism- from laws, which, after the lapse of more than a thousand years, are again transfusing their spirit into the codes of free nations- and from the rule of the world for five hundred years. - The teachings of Israel were amid the waves of the Red Sea, and beneath the thunderings of Sinai, and the Christian's lesson was from the grander revelations of Calvary, and by "Siloa's brook that flowed fast by the oracle of God." I propose to point you to a nearer lesson, in the historical grandeur of Virginia, and the wonderful gifts of Providence in her lands and her skies, her men and her women, her institutions, and especially in her legacies to you her living sons.
