Others, Santayana for instance, have done this so much better that there is scarcely justification for his pride.
The great event in my life recently has been the reading of Santayana's book.
Faith in intellect, as Santayana says, is the only faith yet sanctioned by its fruit.
Santayana is in a neighboring hotel, but we have missed each other thrice.
It is a good idea of Santayana that "the function of poetry is to emotionalize philosophy."
Thus, Mr. Santayana is, perhaps, the most valuable of all the Browning critics.
I have meant to write to Santayana; but on second thoughts, and to save myself, I will just ask you to send him this.
Even so subtle a thinker as Santayana finds them too difficult, and abandons them in righteous indignation.
And, as Santayana admirably says, harmony when made to rule in life gives reason a noble satisfaction which we call happiness.
A striking example of critical and philosophic blindness is Mr. Santayana's essay on Shelley.
