Seite 114 - One who never turned his back but marched breast forward, Never doubted clouds would break, Never dreamed, though right were worsted, wrong would triumph, Held we fall to rise, are baffled to fight better, i Sleep to wake.
Seite 51 - A man that looks on glass, On it may stay his eye ; Or if he pleaseth, through it pass, And then the heaven espy. All may of Thee partake : Nothing can be so mean, Which with this tincture (for Thy sake) Will not grow bright and clean. A servant with this clause Makes drudgery divine : Who sweeps a room, as for Thy laws, Makes that and th

Seite 4 - He would make of it a serious study, weighing the precise power of every phrase and word, as though it were precious metal, disentangling the later associations and going back to the original and native sense of each, — restoring to full significance all its wealth of latent figurative expression, reviving or replacing its outworn or tarnished images.
Seite 62 - Come, mete me out my loneliness, O wind, For I would know How far the living who must stay behind Are from the dead who go. Eternal Passer-by, I feel there is In thee a stir, A strength to span the yawning distances From her gravestone to her. MORE GOLD THAN GOLD (After Sappho) Yea, gold is son of Zeus: no rust Its timeless light can stain; The worm that brings man's flesh to dust Assaults its strength in vain: More gold than gold the love I sing, A hard, inviolable thing. Men say the...
Seite 110 - ... Proclaim the faults he would not show : Break lock and seal : betray the trust : Keep nothing sacred : 'tis but just The many-headed beast should know.
