Greek history, the history of I srael, andE oman history. These three histories combined constitute what may be called the history of civilisation, civilisation being the result of the alternate collaboration of Greece, Judea, andE ome. Greece in my opinion has an exceptional past, for she founded, in the fullest sense of the word, rational and progressive humanity. Our science, our arts, our literature, our philosophy, our moral code, our political code, our strategy, our diplomacy, our maritime and international law, are of Greek origin. The framework of human culture created by Greece is susceptible of indefinite enlargement, but it is complete in its several parts. Progress will consist in constantly developing what Greece has conceived, in executing the designs which she has, so to speak, traced out for us. Greece had only one thing wanting in the circle of her moral and intellectual activity, but this was an important void ;she despised the humble and did not feel the need of a just God.
