Seite 23 - Before I was born out of my mother generations guided me, My embryo has never been torpid, nothing could overlay it. For it the nebula cohered to an orb, The long slow strata piled to rest it on, Vast vegetables gave it sustenance, Monstrous sauroids transported it in their mouths and deposited it with care. All forces have been steadily employ'd to complete and delight me, Now on this spot I stand with my robust soul.
Seite 33 - I I have cliinb'd to the snows of Age, and I gaze at a field in the Past, Where I sank with the body at times in the sloughs of a low desire, But I hear no yelp of the beast, and the Man is quiet at last, Ar he stands on the heights of his life with a glimpse of a height that is higher.
Seite 23 - My feet strike an apex of the apices of the stairs, On every step bunches of ages, and larger bunches between the steps, All below duly travel'd, and still I mount and mount. Rise after rise bow the phantoms behind me, Afar down I see the huge first Nothing, I know I was even there, I waited unseen and always, and slept through the lethargic mist, And took my time, and took no hurt from the fetid carbon.
Seite 23 - Immense have been the preparations for me, Faithful and friendly the arms that have help'd me. Cycles ferried my cradle, rowing and rowing like cheerful boatmen, For room to me stars kept aside in their own rings, They sent influences to look after what was to hold me. Before I was born out of my mother generations guided me, My embryo has never been torpid, nothing could overlay it.
Seite 23 - I am an acme of things accomplish'd, and I an encloser of things to be. My feet strike an apex of the apices of the stairs, On every step bunches of ages, and larger bunches between the steps, All below duly travel'd, and still I mount and mount. Rise after rise bow the phantoms behind me, Afar down I see the huge first Nothing, I know I was even there...
Seite 33 - What hast thou done for me, grim Old Age, save breaking my bones on the rack? Would I had past in the morning that looks so bright from afar! OLD AGE Done for thee ? starved the wild beast that was linkt with thee eighty years back. Less weight now for the ladder-ofheaven that hangs on a star. If my body come from brutes, tho' somewhat finer than their own, I am heir, and this my kingdom.
Seite 63 - But He turned and rebuked them, and said, "You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them.
Seite 33 - The Lord let the house of a brute to the soul of a man, And the man said, "Am I your debtor ?" And the Lord, " Not yet; but make it as clean as you can, And then I will let you a better.
Seite 55 - I think, which was given before he became President. Referring to the difficulties and struggles of a great many men, and of the obstacles they have to overcome, he expressed to the young men who heard him the belief that, if there was anything in a man, it was sure to come out. In other words, personality was almost always mightier than condition, and, if a man had it in him to be great, he would be great ; if he had it in him to be a poet, he would be a poet ; if he had it in him to be a soldier,...
Seite 125 - Twas ever so, that he who dared To sail upon a sea unknown Must go upon a voyage unshared, And brave its perils all alone. He who from Palos toward the West Sought for a new world o'er the sea Sailed forth distrusted and unblest, While e'en his ship hatched mutiny. And he who, not content to sit And dream of far-off shores of truth, Watching the sea-bird fancies flit And wavelets creep, through all his youth, Must sail unblest of those behind, And bear e'en love's reproaching tone. Only the guiding...
