Página 219 - I trod, during a course of many years, since the end of which a much longer series has passed away. It was here I formed, and for a long time had the happiness of an union now many years since dissolved. But the pain of a more austere kind than that of pensiveness is from the reflection, to how little purpose, of the highest order, the long years here, and subsequently elsewhere, have been consumed away — how little sedulous and earnest cultivation of internal piety — how little even mental improvement...
Página 33 - The wide, th' unbounded prospect, lies before me; But shadows, clouds, and darkness rest upon it. Here will I hold. If there's a power above us, (And that there is all nature cries aloud Through all her works), he must delight in virtue ; And that which he delights in, must be happy. But when ! or where ! — This world was made for Caesar.
Página 80 - But he that knew not. and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required; and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.
Página 376 - Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power...
Página 33 - And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer...
Página 60 - I sometimes fall into profound musings on the state of this great world, on the nature and the destinies of man, on the subject of the question " What is truth ?" The whole hemisphere of contemplation appears inexpressibly strange and mysterious. It is cloud pursuing cloud, forest after forest, and Alps upon Alps ! It is in vain to declaim against scepticism.
Página 53 - What an affecting scene is a dying world ! Who is that destroying angel whom the Eternal has employed to sacrifice all our devoted race ? Advancing onward over the whole field of time, he hath smitten the successive crowds of our hosts with death ; and to us he now approaches nigh. Some of our friends have trembled, and sickened, and expired, at the signals of his coming ; already we hear the thunder of his wings : soon his eye of fire will throw mortal fainting on all our companies ; his prodigious...
Página 263 - And the language of scripture is formidably strong ; so strong that it must be an argument of extreme cogency that would authorize a limited interpretation.
Página 324 - Well-being arises from well-doing," is a Saxon phrase which may be thus rendered into the Latin part of the language : — " Felicity attends virtue:" but how inferior in force is the latter! In the Saxon phrase, the parts or roots of words being significant in our language, and familiar to our eyes and ears, throw their whole meaning into the compounds and derivations; while the Latin words of the same import, having their roots and elements in a foreign language, carry only a cold and conventional...
Página 127 - Than aught in love the like of us can spy. See yon twa elms that grow up side by side : Suppose them some years syne bridegroom and bride ; Nearer and nearer ilka year they've prest, Till wide their spreading branches are increas'd, And in their mixture now are fully blest: This shields the other frae the eastlin blast, That in return defends it frae the wast.
