Page 57 - And the vast minster seems a cross of flowers! But fiends and dragons on the gargoyled eaves Watch the dead Christ between the living thieves, And, underneath, the traitor Judas lowers! Ah! from what agonies of heart and brain...
Page 241 - Hypocrisy and Custom make their minds The fanes of many a worship now outworn. They dare not devise good for man's estate, ' And yet they know not that they do not dare. The good want power but to weep barren tears : The powerful goodness want, — worse need for them : The wise want love : and those who love want wisdom : And all best things are thus confused to ill.
Page 46 - They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters ; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.
Page 558 - My duty towards my neighbour is, to love him as myself, and to do to all men as I would they should do unto me...
