Strana 183 - Full many a gem of purest ray serene The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear : Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air. Some village- Hampden, that, with dauntless breast, The little tyrant of his fields withstood, Some mute inglorious Milton here may rest, Some Cromwell guiltless of his country's blood. Th...
Strana 91 - At secura quies, et nescia fallere vita, Dives opum variarum ; at latis otia fundis, Speluncae, vivique lacus ; at frigida Tempe, Mugitusque boum, mollesque sub arbore somni 470 Non absunt : illic saltus ac lustra ferarum, Et patiens operum, exiguoque assueta, juventus ; Sacra deum, sanctique patres : extrema per illos Justitia, excedens terris, vestigia fecit.
Strana 131 - Aeolides laboris: linquenda tellus et domus et placens uxor, neque harum quas colis arborum te praeter invisas cupressos ulla brevem dominum sequetur: absumet heres Caecuba dignior servata centum clavibus et mero tinget pavimentum superbo, pontificum potiore cenis.
Strana 227 - There are many who cultivate appearances, while they neglect the heart. There are others who cultivate the heart, but somewhat neglect appearances. Both are in the wrong, though the former are incalculably more so. I will endeavour to regard what is internal, so as to secure the approbation of God: I will so far pay attention to what is exterior, as not justly to incur the disapprobation of man.— W.
Strana 126 - Era la notte allor ch'alto riposo Han l'onde ei venti, e parea muto il mondo. Gli animai lassi, e quei che' 1 mare ondoso, O de' liquidi laghi alberga il fondo, E chi si giace in tana o in mandra ascoso, E i pinti augelli nell' obblio profondo Sotto il silenzio de' secreti orrori Sopian gli affanni, e raddolciano i cori.
Strana 236 - God, or from right motives practise his commands, the proposition is correct. But if it express that no kind or portion of moral excellence resides naturally in man, it is unsupported by Scripture, and decisively confuted by fact. Are not benevolence, filial and parental affection, pity, gratitude, generosity of disposition, the love of justice, in themselves morally good, and parts of the nature which God has communicated to mankind ? Or are they peculiar to the renovated and religious character?...
Strana 61 - The former is valued as a kindness which cannot be claimed ; the latter is exacted as the payment of a debt to merit.
Strana 38 - The necessity of contemplating objects in an abstract and systematic manner, betrays the narrowness of our mental faculties, which are unable to apprehend what is complex without separation or analysis. Yet nothing in nature is presented to us in an abstract form ; and provided we have a generally correct view of elementary qualities, the more we can combine subjects and ideas, the more rapid will be our intellectual progress.— WB Clulow.
Strana 166 - ... manifestations in the systems which they uphold; and whose undoubting confidence, where it has other parentage than unthinking ignorance, is not seldom the offspring of principles that neutralise all thought by perverting its efforts, or dictating the conclusions at which it shall arrive. FORESHADOWINGS. ALL systems and institutions, whether civil or ecclesiastical, which are incapable of moving along with the tide of general improvement, will sooner or later be swept away by its progress. The...
Strana 133 - I would rather be the author of one original thought than the conqueror of a hundred battles. Yet moral excellence is so much superior to intellectual, that I ought to esteem one virtue more valuable than a hundred original thoughts.
