Sivu 153 - ... universal God from universal man— all joy! A reborn race appears— a perfect world, all joy! Women and men in wisdom innocence and health— all joy! Riotous laughing bacchanals fill'd with joy ! War, sorrow, suffering gone— the rank earth purged— nothing but joy left!
Sivu 31 - As well invite the monument To vacate Bunker Hill! So I sat before him helpless. In an ecstasy of woe The mountain mists were rising fast. The sun was sinking slow When a sudden inspiration came, As sudden winds do blow. I took my hat. I took my stick, My load I settled fair, I approached that awful incubus With an absent-minded air And I walked directly through him, As if he wasn't there!
Sivu 207 - Man is his own star; and the soul that can Render an honest and a perfect man, Commands all light, all influence, all fate; Nothing to him falls early or too late. Our acts our angels are, or good or ill, Our fatal shadows that walk by us still.
Sivu 246 - BORROWING. FROM THE FRENCH. SOME of your hurts you have cured, And the sharpest you still have survived, But what torments of grief you endured From evils which never arrived!
Sivu 25 - And three hundred years had stood mute adown each hoary wood, Like a full heart having prayed. • And the little birds sang east, and the little birds sang west, Toll slowly.
Sivu 201 - STRONGER LESSONS. Have you learn'd lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you? Have you not learn'd great lessons from those who reject you, and brace themselves against you ? or who treat you with contempt, or dispute the passage with you ? A PRAIRIE SUNSET.
Sivu 9 - O while I live to be the ruler of life, not a slave, To meet life as a powerful conqueror, No fumes, no ennui, no more complaints or scornful criticisms, To these proud laws of the air, the water and the ground, proving my interior soul impregnable, And nothing exterior shall ever take command of me.
Sivu 222 - ... me, My embryo has never been torpid, nothing could overlay it. For it the nebula cohered to an orb, The long slow strata piled to rest it on, Vast vegetables gave it sustenance, Monstrous sauroids transported it in their mouths and deposited it with care. \ All forces have been steadily employ'd to complete and delight me, Now on this spot I stand with my robust soul.
Sivu 73 - If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land : But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword : for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
Sivu 223 - Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldst believe, thou shouldst see the glory of God?
