עמוד 25 - Youth is not rich in time, it may be poor ; Part with it as with money, sparing ; pay No moment, but in purchase of its worth ; And what its worth, ask death-beds ; they can tell.
עמוד 61 - The knell, the shroud, the mattock, and the grave ; The deep damp vault, the darkness, and the worm ; These are the bugbears of a winter's eve, The terrors of the living, not the dead. Imagination's fool, and error's wretch, Man makes a death, which nature never made : Then on the point of his own fancy falls ; And feels a thousand deaths, in fearing one.
עמוד 42 - Painim or Christian; to the blush of wit. Man's highest triumph ! man's profoundest fall! The Death-bed of the just! is yet undrawn By mortal hand ; it merits a Divine : Angels should paint it, angels ever There; There, on a post of honour, and of joy. Dare I presume, then? But PHILANDER bids; And glory tempts, and inclination calls Yet am I struck; as struck the soul, beneath Aerial Groves...
עמוד 223 - He sees with other eyes than theirs. Where they Behold a sun, he spies a deity : What makes them only smile, makes him adore. Where they see mountains, he but atoms sees : An empire, in his balance, weighs a grain. .They things terrestrial worship as divine ; *His hopes immortal blow them by, as dust, That dims his sight, and shortens his survey, Which longs, in infinite, to lose all bound. Titles and honors (if they prove his fate,) He lays aside, to find his dignity : No dignity they find in aught...
עמוד 11 - Fate ! drop the curtain ; I can lose no more. Silence and Darkness ! solemn sisters ! twins From ancient Night, who nurse the tender thought To reason, and on reason build resolve, — That column of true majesty in man...
עמוד 84 - Talk they of morals ? O thou bleeding Love ! Thou maker of new morals to mankind ! The grand morality is love of Thee.
עמוד 28 - To man's false optics (from his folly false) Time, in advance, behind him hides his wings, And seems to creep, decrepit with his age. Behold him when past by; what then is seen But his broad pinions swifter than the winds? And all mankind, in contradiction strong, Rueful, aghast, cry out on his career.
עמוד 78 - Thou, my all ! My theme ! my inspiration ! and my crown ! My strength in age ! my rise in low estate ! My soul's ambition, pleasure, wealth ! — my world ! My light in darkness ! and my life in death ! My boast through time ! bliss through eternity ! Eternity, too short to speak thy praise ! Or fathom thy profound of love to man...
