Seite 345 - Stern Lawgiver ! yet thou dost wear The Godhead's most benignant grace; Nor know we anything so fair As is the smile upon thy face: Flowers laugh before thee on their beds And fragrance in thy footing treads; Thou dost preserve the stars from wrong; And the most ancient heavens, through Thee, are fresh and strong.
Seite 311 - To Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love All pray in their distress; And to these virtues of delight Return their thankfulness. For Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love Is God, our Father dear, And Mercy, Pity, Peace, and Love Is man, His child and care. For Mercy has a human heart, Pity, a human face, And Love, the human form divine, And Peace, the human dress.

There is no general doctrine which is not capable of eating out our morality if unchecked by the deep-seated habit of direct fellowfeeling with individual...
Seite 393 - Ay, said Mr. Malice, for I hate the very looks of him. Then said Mr. Lovelust, I could never endure him. Nor I, said Mr. Live-loose, for he would always be condemning my way. Hang him, hang him ! said Mr. Heady. A sorry scrub, said Mr. High-mind. My heart riseth against him, said Mr. Enmity. He is a rogue, said Mr. Liar. Hanging is too good for him, said Mr.
Seite 4 - You will certainly go mad in that house alone, my dear. You will see visions. We have all got to exert ourselves a little to keep sane, and call things by the same names as other people call them by. To be sure, for younger sons and women who have no money, it is a sort of provision to go mad : they are taken care of then. But you must not run into that. I daresay you are a little bored here with our good dowager ; but think what a bore you might become yourself to your fellow -creatures if you were...
Seite 1 - Ov' ella passa, ogni uom vèr lei si gira, E cui saluta fa tremar lo core. Si che, bassando il viso, tutto smuore, E d' ogni suo difetto allor sospira : Fuggon dinanzi a lei superbia ed ira : Aiutatemi, donne, a farle onore.
