Sivu 82 - I breathed a song into the air, I i. fell to earth, I knew not where ; For who has sight so keen and strong. That it can follow the flight of song • Long, long afterward, in an oak I found the arrow, still unbroke ; And the song, from beginning to end, I found again in the heart of a friend, SONNETS.
Sivu 55 - I, even I, am He That comforteth you : who art thou that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass ; and forgettest the LORD thy Maker, That hath stretched forth the heavens, and laid the foundations of the earth...
Sivu 208 - Of every hearer ; for it so falls out » That what we have we prize not to the worth Whiles we enjoy it, but being lack'd and lost, Why, then we rack the value, then we find The virtue that possession would not show us Whiles it was ours.
Sivu 37 - Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
Sivu 182 - If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him : and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation.
Sivu 187 - God ; oh ye who in eternal youth Speak with a living and creative flood This universal English, and do stand Its breathing book ; live worthy of that grand Heroic utterance — parted, yet a whole, Far, yet unsevered, — children brave and free Of the great Mother-tongue, and ye shall be Lords of an Empire wide as Shakespeare's soul, Sublime as Milton's immemorial theme, And rich as Chaucer's speech, and fair as Spenser's dream.
Sivu 38 - ROCK of Ages, cleft for me, Let me hide myself in Thee ! Let the water and the blood, From Thy riven side which flowed, Be of sin the double cure, Cleanse me from its guilt and power.
Sivu 119 - All fame is foreign, but of true desert ; Plays round the head, but comes not to the heart : One self-approving hour whole years outweighs Of stupid starers, and of loud huzzas ; And more true joy Marcellus exiled feels, Than Caesar with a senate at his heels. In parts superior what advantage lies ? Tell (for you can) what is it to be wise ? 'Tis but to know how little can be known ; To see all others...
Sivu 28 - And we also bless Thy holy Name for all Thy servants departed this life in Thy faith and fear ; beseeching Thee to give us grace so to follow their good examples, that with them we may be partakers of Thy heavenly kingdom.
Sivu 107 - And answer made the bold Sir Bedivere: "Sir King, I closed mine eyelids, lest the gems Should blind my purpose, for I never saw, Nor shall see, here or elsewhere, till I die, Not tho' I live three lives of mortal men, So great a miracle as yonder hilt.
