Hence the plastic mind, in the active sense of the term, comes to mean the mind
which acts through the senses alone, by pure and simple sensuous observation ;
while the pictorial or the poetic tendency is less intuitive, more reflective and
associative. The word ' plastic ' in this active sense has been so long in use in
Germany to express this definite idea, that though less widely used in England, it
becomes a necessity to adopt it in dealing with the present subject. The ancient

Carlyle, Elwyn, James Grant, Leigh and Thornton Hunt, Lucas, Lord Macaulay,
Mahony {Father Prout), Morley, Reeve, Rin- toul, Ruskin, and others hardly
inferior. But the great feature of the literature of the day, which gives it character
and distinctness, is its novels. Not in the present generation can we appreciate
the impression which this flood of fiction is producing on society, on the plastic

... this was only by furnishing a fruitful suggestion, in which the plastic mind of
Milton found material for its work. That work itself was a synthesis of elemental
conceptions in which shapes and colors, sizes and distances, sounds and
motions, uniformities and diversities, were first modified at will, and then
combined into one harmonious scene, so as most to please the taste. This
wonderful power, which, out of old material, makes things wholly new, is yet more
evidently displayed in that ...

There would be more profit in taking one another frankly by the hand and walking
together along the outskirts of real knowledge, pointing to the material facts which
we all can see, nature, the monuments, the texts, the actual ways and institutions
of men; and in the presence of such a stimulus, with the contagion of a common
interest, the plastic mind would respond of itself to the situation, and we should
be helping one another to understand whatever lies within the range of our fancy,

... character a resolution against Intemperance. It does not propose to accomplish
this by exhortation or by old-fashioned stock Temperance lectures, but by hurling
hard scientific facts against the plastic mind of youth, where they stick and finally
imbed themselves in the forming character. The State's educational remedy for
Intemperance is, “Take hold of the coming man him. self,” take him in time, and
show him what science teaches concerning an evil which threatens him in the
future.

The plastic mind of infancy and childhood must be formed to the consciousness,
the love, and the belief of the truth as it is in Jesus. It has been said, that a man
should not be able to remember the time when he did not believe in a God.
Equally true is it, as it seems to us, that he should not be able to remember the
time when he did not believe in Christ as the Son of God ; when he was a doubter
of the reality, or a stranger to the conditions or the influences, of the Christian
salvation.

Aided by thee—O Art sublime! our race Spurns the opposing bonds of time and
space, With same's swift flight to hold an equal course, And taste the stream from
reason's purest source; Vice, and her hydra sons, thy powers can bind, And cast
in virtue's mould the plastic mind; Yet some there are—whose dread unhallowed
hand, To deeds of guilt thine energies command, For giddy youth's unguarded
hour prepare The luring tale—the foul immoral snare. Ye pests—whose means of

In Islam also, enlightenment must precede reform; and, before there can be a
renovation of religious life, the mind must first escape from the bondage which
centuries of literal interpretation and the doctrine of “conformity” have imposed
upon it. The formalism that does not appeal to the heart of the worshipper must
be abandoned; externals must be subordinated to the inner feelings; and the
lessons of ethics must be impressed on the plastic mind; then alone can we hope
for that ...
