Seite 651 - When he made a decree for the rain, and a way for the lightning of the thunder ; Then did he see it, and declare it ; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out.
Seite 388 - Isaac; (for the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil, that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of him that calleth;) it was said unto her, The elder shall serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I loved, but Esau have I hated.
Seite 651 - The gold and the crystal cannot equal it ; and the exchange of it shall not be for jewels of fine gold. No mention shall be made of coral or of pearls ; for the price of wisdom is above rubies. The topaz of Ethiopia shall not equal it, neither shall it be valued with pure gold.
Seite 669 - Turbulent, with an outcry in the heart ; And Fears self-willed, that shunned the eye of Hope; And Hope that scarce would know itself from Fear ; Sense of past Youth, and Manhood come in vain, And Genius given, and Knowledge won in vain ; And all which I had culled in Wood-walks wild, And all which patient toil had reared, and all, Commune with thee had opened out — but Flowers Strewed on my corse, and borne upon my Bier, In the same Coffin, for the self-same Grave...

Seite 665 - For not to think of what I needs must feel, But to be still and patient, all I can; And haply by abstruse research to steal From my own nature all the natural man — This was my sole resource, my only plan: Till that which suits a part infects the whole, And now is almost grown the habit of my soul.
Seite 242 - PHILOSOPHY* is such knowledge of effects or appearances, as we acquire by true ratiocination from the knowledge we have first of their causes or generation: And again, of such causes or generations as may be from knowing first their effects.
Seite 435 - Whereas, were the capacities of our understandings well considered, the extent of our knowledge once discovered, and the horizon found which sets the bounds between the enlightened and dark parts of things; between what is and what is not comprehensible by us, men would perhaps with less scruple acquiesce in the avowed ignorance of the one, and employ their thoughts and discourse with more advantage and satisfaction in the other.
