American Falls, Niagara, from Across River
The sylvan perfume, the gayety of the sunshine, the mildness of the breeze that stirred the leaves overhead, and the bird singing that made itself felt amid the roar of the rapids and the solemn incessant plunge of the cataract, moved our hearts and made us children with the boy and girl that stood beside us--who stood for a moment and then broke into joyful wonder. --W. D.Howells The pure beauty of elegance and grace is the grand characteristic of the falls. It is supremely artistic, a harmony, a masterpiece. The lower half of the waterway wall is shrouded in the steam of the boiling gulf--a veil never rent or lifted. At its core this eternal cloud seems fixed and still with excess of motion--still and intensely white. --Henry James To paint the glories that come and go upon the falling, rushing waters, the painter must dip his brush in the rainbow, and when he has done his best, he willnot be believed by those who have not seen his subject with their own eyes. --Art Journal
