Seite 125 - BREATHES there the man, with soul so dead, Who never to himself hath said, This is my own, my native land ! Whose heart hath ne'er within him burn'd, As home his footsteps he hath turn'd, From wandering on a foreign strand...
Seite 246 - For them no more the blazing hearth shall burn. Or busy housewife ply her evening care; No children run to lisp their sire's return, Or climb his knees the envied kiss to share. Oft did the harvest to their sickle yield, Their furrow oft the stubborn glebe has broke: How jocund did they drive their team afield! How bowed the woods beneath their sturdy stroke!
Seite 188 - Oh ! that the Desert were my dwelling-place, With one fair Spirit for my minister, That I might all forget the human race, And, hating no one, love but only her ! Ye Elements ! — in whose ennobling stir...
Seite 163 - A mighty mass of brick, and smoke, and shipping, Dirty and dusky, but as wide as eye Could reach, with here and there a sail just skipping In sight, then lost amidst the forestry Of masts; a wilderness of steeples peeping On tiptoe through their sea-coal canopy; A huge, dun cupola, like a foolscap crown On a fool's head - and there is London Town!
Seite 107 - Give them a humble and docile heart. Give them a strong desire of finding out thy truth, and a strong grace to enable them to embrace it, in spite of all the opposition of the world, the flesh, and the devil.
Seite 188 - With one fair Spirit for my minister, That I might all forget the human race, And, hating no one, love but only her ! Ye Elements ! — in whose ennobling stir I feel myself exalted — Can ye not Accord me such a being ! Do I err In deeming such inhabit many a spot ? Though with them to converse can rarely be our lot.
Seite 117 - Par les principes, la philosophie ne peut faire aucun bien que la religion ne le fasse encore mieux, et la religion en fait beaucoup que la philosophie ne saurait faire.
Seite 155 - Should you ask for the scripture authority for this and suchlike practices, I answer there is none ; but there is tradition that authorizes it, custom that confirms it, submission that observes it.
Seite 107 - ... may be brought to know thee, love thee, and serve thee here in thy Church, and bless thee hereafter for all eternity. Look down also with an eye of pity and compassion on all those deluded souls, who, under the name of Christians, have gone away from the paths of truth and unity, and from the one fold of the one Shepherd, Jesus Christ, into the by-paths of error and schism.
Seite 62 - GOLCONDE. 11 reçut au sein de la gloire Et les myrtes et les lauriers Que les belles et la victoire Tressent pour le front des guerriers. En amour ainsi qu'à la guerre II vole à de nouveaux succès; II sait aimer, combattre et plaire, C'est vous dire qu'il est Français.
