135 ページ - Fortune, that with malicious joy Does man, her slave, oppress, Proud of her office to destroy, Is seldom pleased to bless : Still various, and inconstant still, But with an inclination to be ill, Promotes, degrades, delights in strife, And makes a lottery of life. I can enjoy her while she's kind ; But when she dances in the wind, And shakes the wings, and will not stay, I puff the prostitute away : The little or the much she gave, is quietly resigned ; . Content with poverty, my soul I arm, And...
38 ページ - Like clouds that rake the mountainsummits, Or waves that own no curbing hand. How fast has brother followed brother From sunshine to the sunless land ! Yet I, whose lids from infant slumber Were earlier raised, remain to hear A timid voice, that asks in whispers, " Who next will drop and disappear...
13 ページ - La vie est vaine : Un peu d'amour, Un peu de haine . . . Et puis — bon jour ! La vie est breve : Un peu d'espoir, Un peu de reve . . . Et puis — bon soir ! ' The above is a terse and true criticism of this life without hope of a future one.
293 ページ - That doth not vanish as soon as 'tis heard : Once in an age is humanity stirred. Once in a century springs forth a deed From the dark bands of forgetfulness freed, Destined to shine, and to help, and to lead : Yet not e'en thus, escape we our lot : — The deed lasts in memory, the doer is not : The word liveth on, but the voice is forgot.
44 ページ - Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
278 ページ - Satan, and set up every where the standard of Christ. Abolish the reign of sin, and establish the kingdom of grace in all hearts. Let humility triumph over pride and ambition ; charity over hatred, envy, and malice ; purity and temperance over lust and excess ; meekness over passion ; and disinterestedness and poverty of spirit over covetousness and the love of this perishable world. Let the Gospel of Christ, both in its belief and practice, prevail throughout the world.
78 ページ - The nursling of the Mighty Mother died, And went where all his fathers went before. — On thee, too, in thy day Of childhood, Arthur, did some check have power, That, radiant though thou wert, thou couldst but stay, Bringer of heavenly light, a human hour ? Therefore our happy guest Knew care, and knew unrest, And weakness warn'd him, and he fear'd decline.
199 ページ - Subtlest thought shall fail, and learning falter, Churches change, forms perish, systems go, But our human needs, they will not alter, Christ no after age shall e'er outgrow. Yea, amen ! O changeless One, Thou only Art life's guide and spiritual goal, Thou the Light across the dark vale lonely, — Thou the eternal haven of the soul...
155 ページ - Aloof from our mutations and unrest, Alien to our achievements and desires, Too proud alike for protest or assent When new thoughts thunder at her massy door; — Another brain dreaming another dream, Another heart recalling other loves, Too grey and grave for our adventurous hopes, For our precipitate pleasures too august, And in majestic taciturnity Refraining her illimitable scorn.
184 ページ - Brown's four novels, Schiller's Robbers, and Goethe's Faust, were, of all the works with which he was familiar, those which took the deepest root in his mind, and had the strongest influence in the formation of his character.
