Seite 401 - With a sweet emotion; Nothing in the world is single; All things by a law divine In one another's being mingle. Why not I with thine?-— See the mountains kiss high Heaven And the waves clasp one another; No sister flower would be forgiven If it disdained its brother; And the sunlight clasps the earth And the moonbeams kiss the sea: What are all these kissings worth If thou kiss not me?
Seite 332 - PRAISE be to God, the Lord of all creatures, the most merciful, the king of the day of judgment. Thee do we worship, and of thee do we beg assistance. Direct us in the right way, in the way of those to whom thou hast been gracious ; not of those against whom thou art incensed, nor of those who go astray...
Seite 266 - SAY : O unbelievers,* I will not worship that which ye worship ; nor will ye worship that which I worship. Neither do I worship that which ye worship ; neither do ye worship that which I worship. Ye have your religion, and I my religion.
Seite 164 - But here, - above, around, below, On mountain or in glen, Nor tree, nor shrub, nor plant, nor flower, Nor aught of vegetative power, The weary eye may ken. For all is rocks at random thrown, Black waves, bare crags, and banks of stone...
Seite 40 - Fillet of a fenny snake, In the caldron boil and bake : Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble ; Like a hell-broth boil and bubble.
Seite 398 - ... but rivals she has none. Lone and different as the moon in a heaven full of stars, she remains in the world of that man's heart. He has known other women, and he has known her. It may be the love of his youth, or the wife of his old age — first love or last love, it matters not. The love, the one love that fulfils all the exigencies of illusion, all the charms of sense, and all the pleasures of companionship, comes but once in man's lifetime. The rest are substitutes, makeshifts for love ;...
Seite 21 - The gentle mind is like the smooth stream which reflects every object in its just proportion and in its fairest colours. Beware of those rash and dangerous connexions which may afterwards load you with dishonour. Blind must that man be who discerns not the most striking marks of a Divine government exercised over the world.
Seite 398 - The woman who is so loved may have successors, as she has had predecessors ; but rivals she has none. Lone and different as the moon in a heaven full of stars, she remains in the world of that man's heart. He has known other women, and he has known her. It may be the love of his youth, or the wife of his old age — first love or last love, it matters not. The love, the one love that fulfils all the exigencies of illusion, all the charms of sense, and all the pleasures of companionship, comes but...
Seite 263 - Keppoch in ruin is left to deplore, And my country is waste from the hill to the shore, Be it so! By St Mary there's comfort in store! Though the braes of Lochaber a desert be made, And Glen Roy...
Seite 311 - And his fame went throughout all Syria. It is not easy to fix the exact bounds of Syria in the time of our Saviour. It was, perhaps, the general name for the country lying between the Euphrates on the east, and the Mediterranean on the west ; and between mount Taurus on the north, and Arabia on the south.
