Seite 323 - Even to the teeth and forehead of our faults, To give in evidence. What then ? what rests ? Try what repentance can : what can it not ? Yet what can it, when one cannot repent ? O wretched state ! O bosom, black as death ! O limed soul, that, struggling to be free, Art more engaged ! Help, angels, make assay !

Seite 253 - I will ask him for my place again ;he shall tell me, I am a drunkard ! Had I as many mouths as Hydra, such an answer would stop them all. To be now a sensible man, by-and-by a fool, and presently a beast ! O strange !— Every inordinate cup is unblessed, and the ingredient is a devil.
Seite 318 - Thy widely erring steps had reason led ; Think, if thy time a nobler use had known, Ere this the glorious prize had been thine own.
Seite 101 - City, and holding a pure faith in the unity of the Spirit and in the bond of peace...
Seite 171 - ... known : But what particular rarity ? what strange, Which manifold record not matches ? See, Magic of bounty ! all these spirits thy power Hath conjured to attend. I know the merchant. Pain. I know them both ; th
Seite 318 - Awake, and see, since reason gave the rein To low desire, thy every work how vain. Ah think how false that bliss the mind explores, In futile honours, or unbounded stores ; How poor the bait that would thy steps decoy To sensual pleasure, and unmeaning joy. Rouse...
