Page 14 - And what is so rare as a day in June ? Then, if ever, come perfect days; Then Heaven tries the earth if it be in tune, And over it softly her warm ear lays : Whether we look, or whether we listen, We hear life murmur, or see it glisten ; Every clod feels a stir of might. An instinct within it that reaches and towers, And, groping blindly above it for light, Climbs to a soul in grass and flowers...
Page 47 - Never the spirit was born ; the spirit shall cease to be never ; Never was time it was not ; End and Beginning are dreams ! Birthless and deathless and changeless remaineth the spirit for ever ; Death hath not touched it at all, dead though the house of it seems...
Page 32 - The Moving Finger writes ; and, having writ, Moves on : nor all thy Piety nor Wit Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line, Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.
Page 53 - I am the Lord, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
Page 43 - Alone, O Love ineffable ! Thy saving name is given ; To turn aside from Thee is hell, To walk with Thee is heaven!
Page 35 - Speak to him thou, for he hears, and Spirit with Spirit may meet : Closer is he than breathing, and nearer than hands and feet.
Page 14 - A SUBTLE chain of countless rings The next unto the farthest brings ; The eye reads omens where it goes, And speaks all languages the rose ; And, striving to be man, the worm Mounts through all the spires of form.
Page 11 - Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy mind, with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and thy neighbor as thyself.
Page 17 - In your metaphysics you have denied personality to the Deity: yet when the devout motions of the soul come, yield to them heart and life, though they should clothe God with shape and color.
Page 48 - Higher than the question of our duration is the question of our deserving. Immortality will come to such as are fit for it, and he who would be a great soul in future must be a great soul now.
