Сторінка 177 - When he established the clouds above : When he strengthened the fountains of the deep : When he gave to the sea his decree, That the waters should not pass his commandment: When he appointed the foundations of the earth : 235 Then I was by him, as one brought up with him : And I was daily his delight, Rejoicing always before him ; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth ; And my delights were with the sons of men.
Сторінка 315 - O may I join the choir invisible Of those immortal dead who live again In minds made better by their presence : live In pulses stirred to generosity, In deeds of daring rectitude, in scorn For miserable aims that end with self, In thoughts sublime that pierce the night like stars, And with their mild persistence urge men's search To vaster issues.

Сторінка 424 - Is there no God, then; but at best an absentee God, sitting idle, ever since the first Sabbath, at the outside of his Universe, and seeing it go.
Сторінка 417 - tis her privilege. Through all the years of this our life, to lead From joy to joy; for she can so inform The mind that is within us, so impress With quietness and beauty, and so feed With lofty thoughts, that neither evil tongues. Rash judgments, nor the sneers of selfish men, Nor greetings where no kindness is, nor all The dreary intercourse of daily life, Shall e'er prevail against us, or disturb Our cheerful faith, that all which we behold Is full of blessings.
Сторінка 95 - Canst thou by searching find out God? canst thou find out the Almighty unto perfection? It is as high as heaven; what canst thou do? deeper than hell; what canst thou know? The measure thereof is longer than the earth, and broader than the sea.
Сторінка 418 - Poi cominciò: Colui che volse il sesto Allo stremo del mondo, e dentro ad esso Distinse tanto occulto e manifesto, Non poteo suo valor si fare impresso in tutto l' universo, che il suo verbo Non rimanesse in infinito eccesso.
