The crows, and choughs, that wing the midway air, Show scarce so gross as beetles : Half way down Hangs one that gathers samphire; dreadful trade! Methinks, he seems no bigger than his head: The fishermen, that walk upon the beach, Appear like mice; and yon' tall anchoring bark, Diminish'd to her cock; her cock, a buoy Almost too small for sight: The murmuring surge.
Seite 234 - All this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Prophet, saying, tell ye the daughter of Sion, behold, thy King cometh unto thee meek, and sitting upon an ass, and a colt the foal of an ass.
Seite 611 - For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass. The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away : but the Word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the Word which by the Gospel is preached unto you.

Seite 646 - Was bathed in floods of living fire. But not a setting beam could glow Within the dark ravines below, Where twined the path in shadow hid, Round many a rocky pyramid, Shooting abruptly from the dell Its thunder-splintered pinnacle ; Round many an insulated mass, The native bulwarks of the pass, Huge as the tower which builders vain Presumptuous piled on Shinar's plain.
Seite 666 - The doctor and myself were to preach the next day, and take up a collection for that poor unfortunate chapel which had been the bone of contention in the late chancery suit, and which was deeply involved in debt, at the same time that it had been stripped of its congregation by the secession.* This mode of advertising special public efforts in the cause of the church appears to me not only laudable, but very beneficial. Why should we, in this respect, suffer the children of this world to be wiser...
