Sida 512 - O ! who can hold a fire in his hand By thinking on the frosty Caucasus? Or cloy the hungry edge of appetite By bare imagination of a feast?
Sida 256 - Here is my creed. I believe in one God, the creator of the universe. That he governs it by his providence. That he ought to be worshipped. That the most acceptable service we render to him is doing good to his other children. That the soul of man is immortal, and will be treated with justice in another life respecting its conduct in this.
Sida 426 - If I beheld the sun when it shined, Or the moon walking in brightness; And my heart hath been secretly enticed, Or my mouth hath kissed my hand; This also were an iniquity to be punished by the judge: For I should have denied the God that is above.
Sida 362 - The poet knows that he speaks adequately then only when he speaks somewhat wildly, or "with the flower of the mind" ; not with the intellect used as an organ, but with the intellect released from all service and suffered to take its direction from its celestial life...
Sida 186 - Westward the course of empire takes its way, The four first acts already past, A fifth shall close the drama with the day : Time's noblest offspring is the last.
Sida 322 - The poor inhabitant below Was quick to learn and wise to know, And keenly felt the friendly glow, And softer flame ; But thoughtless follies laid him low, And stain'd his name ! Reader, attend ! whether thy soul Soars fancy's flights beyond the pole, Or darkling grubs this earthly hole, In low pursuit ; Know, prudent, cautious, self-control Is wisdom's root.
Sida 87 - Oh, if the world had but a dozen Arbuthnots in it I would burn my Travels, but however he is not without fault.
