Σελίδα 452 - This is dispensed ; and what surmounts the reach Of human sense I shall delineate so, By likening spiritual to corporal forms, As may express them best ; though what if earth Be but the shadow of heaven, and things therein Each to other like, more than on earth is thought...
Σελίδα 447 - He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true warfaring Christian.
Σελίδα 29 - Be merciful after thy power. If thou hast much, give plenteously; if thou hast little, do thy diligence gladly to give of that little: for so gatherest thou thyself a good reward in the day of necessity.
Σελίδα 222 - Perfection cannot be improved. The employments of pious meditation are Faith, Thanksgiving, Repentance, and Supplication.

Σελίδα 522 - We cannot allow the colonies to check, or discourage in any degree, a traffic so beneficial to the nation.
Σελίδα 221 - ... very little from novelty of expression. " Poetry pleases by exhibiting an idea more grateful to the mind than things themselves afford. This effect proceeds from the display of those parts of nature which attract, and the concealment of those which repel the imagination. But Religion must be shown as it is : suppression and addition equally corrupt it ; and such as it is, it is known already.
Σελίδα 444 - O! why did God, Creator wise, that peopled highest heaven With spirits masculine, create at last This novelty on earth, this fair defect Of nature, and not fill the world at once With men, as angels, without feminine; Or find some other way to generate Mankind?
