Σελίδα 42 - I firmly believe that but for the buffetings of that perilous storm, scarcely a remnant of the quick moral perception which God had naturally given to my mind would have escaped destruction by the emaciating poison of confession. I judge from the certain knowledge of the secret conduct of many members of the clergy, who were deemed patterns of devotion. Like those wretched slaves, I should have been permanently the worse for the custom of sinning and washing away the sin by confession. Free, however,...
Σελίδα 355 - Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said ye are gods? If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken ; Say ye of him whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God ? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
Σελίδα 367 - What recks it them? What need they? They are sped; And, when they list, their lean and flashy songs Grate on their scrannel pipes of wretched straw; The hungry sheep look up, and are not fed, But, swoln with wind and the rank mist they draw, Rot inwardly, and foul contagion spread : Besides what the grim wolf with privy paw Daily devours apace, and nothing said: But that two-handed engine at the door Stands ready to smite once, and smite no more.

Σελίδα 355 - The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for. blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
Σελίδα 356 - Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried, He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead, He ascended into heaven, And sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty ; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
Σελίδα 398 - A rat had gnawn my spur-leathers ;' notwithstanding, I put on new, and did go forth ; but first I threw three beans over the threshold. Item, I went and bought two toothpicks, whereof one I burst immediately, in a discourse With a Dutch merchant, 'bout ragion del stato. From him I went and paid a moccinigo For piecing my silk stockings ; by the way I cheapened sprats ; and at St. Mark's I urined.
Σελίδα 174 - I deserved at your highness' hands. The language I have learn'd these forty years, My native English, now I must forego ; \ And now my tongue's use is to me no more Than an unstringed viol or a harp; Or like a cunning instrument, cas'd up, Or, being open, put into his hands That knows no touch to tune the harmony.
Σελίδα 426 - My dawn and evening have so closely met That men the shades of night begin to find Darkening my brow ; and heedless, not unkind, Let the sad warning drop, without regret. Gone Youth ! had I thus...
Σελίδα 36 - As the object of the sculptor was to strike the senses, without any regard to taste, the statue was as large as life, with glass eyes, and the body so coloured as to represent flesh, sprinkled here and there with blood. After the congregation had taken their seats, in profound silence, one of Father Vega's assistant priests read the subject of Meditation for that evening. This reading generally lasted half an hour. At the end of it, all knelt. For about a quarter of an hour nothing was heard but...
