271 ページ - And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did? But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.
79 ページ - Content, and cheerful Piety were found Within those humble walls. From youth to age The simple dwellers paced their even round Of duty, not desiring to engage Upon the busy world's contentious stage, Whose ways they wisely had been train'd to dread : Their inoffensive lives in pupilage Perpetually, but peacefully they led, From all temptation saved, and sure of daily bread.
119 ページ - They believe, that on the dissolution of the body the soul immediately enters some other animal, and that, after using as vehicles every species of terrestrial, aquatic, and winged creatures, it finally enters a second time into a human body. They affirm that it undergoes all these changes in the space of three thousand years. This opinion eome amongst the Greeks have at different periods of time adopted as their own ; but I shall not, though I um able, specify their names.
134 ページ - While we were at the Waterfall, some half-score peasants, chiefly women and girls, assembled just out of reach of the Spring, and set up — surely, the wildest chorus that ever was heard by human ears, — a song not of articulate sounds, but in which the voice was used as a mere instrument of music, more flexible than any which art could produce, — sweet, powerful, and thrilling beyond description.
79 ページ - They on the Jesuit, who was nothing loth, Reposed alike their conscience and their cares ; And he, with equal faith, the trust of both Accepted and discharged. The bliss is theirs Of that entire dependence that prepares Entire submission, let what may befall; And his whole careful course of life declares That for their good he holds them thus in thrall, Their Father and their Friend, Priest, Ruler, all in all.
4 ページ - ... were left, — Our first-born and our only babe, bereft. Too fair a flower was she for this rude earth ! The features of her beauteous infancy Have faded from me like a passing cloud, Or like the glories of an evening sky ; And seldom hath my tongue pronounced her name Since she was summoned to a happier sphere.
255 ページ - to tales like this That I should give belief! Santiago never would bestow His miracles, full well I know, On a Frenchman and a thief.
63 ページ - Little he deem'd when with his Indian band He through the wilds set forth upon his way, A Poet then unborn, and in a land Which had proscribed his order, should one day Take up from thence his moralizing lay, And shape a song that, with no fiction drest, Should to his worth its grateful tribute pay, And sinking deep in many an English breast, Foster that faith divine that keeps the heart at rest.
40 ページ - By nature peccable and frail are we, Easily beguiled ; to vice, to error, prone ; But apt for virtue too. Humanity Is not a field where tares and thorns alone Are left to spring: good seed hath there been sown With no unsparing hand. Sometimes the shoot Is choked with weeds, or withers on a stone; But in a kindly soil it strikes its root, And flourisheth, and bringeth forth abundant fruit.
78 ページ - Yes ; for in history's mournful map, the eye On Paraguay, as on a sunny spot, May rest complacent : to humanity, There, and there only, hath a peaceful lot Been granted, by Ambition troubled not, By Avarice undebased, exempt from care, By perilous passions undisturb'd. And what If Glory never rear'd her standard there, Nor with her clarion's blast awoke the slumbering air?
