Seite 49 - The only point where human bliss stands still, And tastes the good without the fall to ill ; Where only merit constant pay receives, Is...
Seite 19 - Lives through all life, extends through all extent, Spreads undivided, operates unspent : Breathes in our soul, informs our mortal part, As full, as perfect, in a hair as heart; As full, as perfect, in vile man that mourns, As the rapt seraph that adores and burns : To him no high, no low, no great, no small ; He fills, he bounds, connects, and equals all.

Seite 45 - Go, like the Indian, in another life Expect thy dog, thy bottle, and thy wife ; As well as dream such trifles are assign'd, As toys and empires, for a godlike mind : Rewards, that either would to virtue bring No joy, or be destructive of the thing : How oft...
