Strana 82 - Therefore atheism did never perturb states; for it makes men wary of themselves, as looking no further: and we see the times inclined to atheism, as the time of Augustus Caesar, were civil times. But superstition hath been the confusion of many states; and bringeth in a new primum mobile, that ravisheth all the spheres of government.
Strana 99 - Immediately a place Before his eyes appeared, sad, noisome, dark; A lazar-house it seemed, wherein were laid Numbers of all diseased, all maladies Of ghastly spasm, or racking torture, qualms Of heart-sick agony; all feverous kinds, Convulsions, epilepsies, fierce catarrhs, Intestine stone and ulcer, colic pangs, Demoniac frenzy, moping melancholy, And moon-struck madness, pining atrophy, Marasmus, and wide-wasting pestilence, Dropsies, and asthmas, and joint-racking rheums.
Strana 64 - One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
Strana 95 - And among these nations shalt thou find no ease, neither shall the sole of thy foot have rest...
Strana 43 - O almighty one, I tremble and obey ! ' " O Spirit ! centuries have set their seal On this heart of many wounds, and loaded brain, Since the Incarnate came ; humbly he came, Veiling his horrible Godhead in the shape Of man, scorned by the world, his name unheard Save by the rabble of his native town, Even as a parish demagogue.
Strana 28 - ... Commerce has set the mark of selfishness, The signet of its all-enslaving power, Upon a shining ore, and called it gold; Before whose image bow the vulgar great, The vainly rich, the miserable proud, The mob of peasants, nobles, priests, and kings,* And with blind feelings reverence the power That grinds them to the dust of misery ; But in the temple of their hireling hearts Gold is a living god, and rules in scorn All earthly things but virtue.
Strana 10 - Eternal Nature's law. Above, below, around, The circling systems formed A wilderness of harmony — Each with undeviating aim In eloquent silence through the depths of space Pursued its wondrous way.
Strana 95 - But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day ; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee : Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field.
Strana 69 - A husband and wife ought to continue so long united as they love each other : any law which should bind them to cohabitation for one moment after the decay of their affection would be a most intolerable tyranny, and the most unworthy of toleration.
Strana 8 - Spirit of Nature ! here — In this interminable wilderness Of worlds, at whose immensity Even soaring fancy staggers, Here is thy fitting temple ! Yet not the lightest leaf That quivers to the passing breeze Is less instinct with thee ; Yet not the meanest worm That lurks in graves and fattens on the dead, Less shares thy eternal breath ! Spirit of Nature ! thou, Imperishable as this scene — Here is thy fitting temple...
