الصفحة 15 - For God speaketh once, Yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not. In a dream, in a vision of the night, When deep sleep falleth upon men, In slumberings upon the bed ; Then he openeth the ears of men, And sealeth their instruction, That he my withdraw man from his purpose, And hide pride from man.
الصفحة 38 - Thou, over whom thy immortality Broods like the day, a master o'er a slave, A Presence which is not to be put by...
الصفحة 38 - Who made you glorious as the gates of heaven Beneath the keen full moon ? Who bade the sun Clothe you with rainbows ? Who, with living flowers Of loveliest blue, spread garlands at your feet ?— God! let the torrents, like a shout of nations, Answer ! and let the ice-plains echo God!
الصفحة 35 - Contemplative piety, or the intercourse between God and the human soul, cannot be poetical. Man, admitted to implore the mercy of his Creator, and plead the merits of his Redeemer, is already in a higher state than poetry can confer. The essence of poetry is invention; such invention as, by producing something unexpected, surprises and delights.
الصفحة 21 - God of heaven; wherefore, while I stood there, and hanging down my head, I wished with all my heart that I might be a little child again, that my father might learn me to speak without this wicked way of swearing...
الصفحة 20 - I had no sooner thus conceived in my Mind, but suddenly this conclusion was fastened on my Spirit (for the former hint did set my sins again before my Face), That I had been a great and grievous sinner, and that it was now too late for me to look after Heaven ; for Christ would not forgive me, nor pardon my Transgressions.
الصفحة 25 - And, methought, they spake as if joy did make them speak. They spake with such pleasantness of scripture language, and with such appearance of grace in all they said, that they were to me as if they had found a new world ; as if they were 'people that dwelt alone, and were not to be reckoned among their neighbours.
الصفحة 20 - I, if the case be thus, my state is surely miserable ; miserable if I leave my sins, and but miserable if I follow them. I can but be damned, and if I must be so, I had as good be damned for many sins as be damned for few.
الصفحة 40 - Yet e'en in transitory life's late day, That mingles all my brown with sober gray, Revere the man whose pilgrim marks the road, And guides the progress of the soul to God.
الصفحة 22 - AFTER these things Paul departed from Athens, and came to Corinth; 2 And found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had commanded all Jews to depart from Rome:) and came unto them. 3 And because he was of the same craft, he abode with them, and wrought: for by their occupation they were tentmakers.
