Sida 137 - ... grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplications unto thee; and dost promise that when two or three are gathered together in thy Name thou wilt grant their requests; Fulfil now...
Sida 113 - Remember the former things of old: For I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times the things that are not yet done, Saying, My counsel shall stand, And I will do all my pleasure...
Sida 147 - Now was I come up in spirit through the flaming sword into the paradise of God. All things were new, and all the creation gave another smell unto me than before, beyond what words can utter.
Sida 180 - Paradise, and groves Elysian, Fortunate Fields — like those of old Sought in the Atlantic Main — why should they be A history only of departed things, Or a mere fiction of what never was ? For the discerning intellect of Man, When wedded to this goodly universe In love and holy passion, shall find these A simple produce of the common day.
Sida 271 - And will not, then, the immortal armies scorn The world's poor, routed leavings ? or will they, Who fail'd under the heat of this life's day, Support the fervours of the heavenly morn ? No, no ! the energy of life may be Kept on after the grave, but not begun ; And he who flagg'd not in the earthly strife, From strength to strength advancing — only he, His soul well-knit, and all his battles won, Mounts, and that hardly, to eternal life.
Sida 56 - If God held in His right hand all truth and in His left the precious ever-active urge for truth, although with the qualification that I would ever and always err and said to me "choose", I would humbly grasp His left hand and say : "Father, give; pure truth is only for you.".
Sida 81 - We may conclude, therefore, that, in all nations which have embraced polytheism, the first ideas of religion arose, not from a contemplation of the works of nature, but from a concern with regard to the' events of life, and from the incessant hopes and fears which actuate the human mind.
Sida 243 - The ideal of Morality has no more dangerous rival than the ideal of highest Strength, of most powerful life ; which also has been named (very falsely as it was there meant) the ideal of poetic greatness. It is the maximum of the savage ; and has, in these times, gained, precisely among the greatest weaklings, very many proselytes.
Sida 41 - Possessions vanish, and opinions change, And passions hold a fluctuating seat: But, by the storms of circumstance unshaken, And subject neither to eclipse nor wane, Duty exists ;—immutably survive, For our support, the measures and the forms, Which an abstract intelligence supplies ; Whose kingdom is where time and space are not.
Sida 187 - The Theological system arrived at the highest perfection of which it is capable when it substituted the providential action of a single Being for the varied operations of the numerous divinities which had been before imagined. In the same way, in the last stage of the Metaphysical system, men substitute one great entity (Nature) as the cause of all phenomena, instead of the multitude of entities at first supposed. In the same way, again, the ultimate perfection of the Positive...
