Pagina 203 - Detached, separated ! I say there is no such separation. Nothing hitherto was ever stranded, cast aside; but all, were it only a withered leaf, works together with all ; is borne forward on the bottomless, shoreless flood of action, and lives through perpetual metamorphoses.
Pagina 582 - The groves were God's first temples. Ere man learned To hew the shaft, and lay the architrave, And spread the roof above them — ere he framed The lofty vault, to gather and roll back The sound of anthems ; in the darkling wood, Amid the cool and silence, he knelt down, And offered to the Mightiest solemn thanks And supplication.
Pagina 419 - ... roses and violets in the heavenly floor against the coming of the sun, the nightingales (striving one with the other, which could in most dainty variety recount their wrongcaused sorrow) made them put off their sleep, and rising from under a tree, which that night had been their pavilion, they went on their journey, which by and by welcomed Musidorus' eyes (wearied with the wasted soil of Laconia)

The thread-like gossamer is waving past, Borne on the wind's light wing, and to yon branch Tangled and trembling, clings like snowy silk. The thistle-down, high lifted through the rich Bright blue, quick float, like gliding stars, and then Touching the sunshine, flash, and seem to melt Within the dazzling brilliance. Yon tall oak Standing from out the straggling skirt of wood, Touched by the frost, that...
Pagina 489 - Parliament is not a congress of ambassadors from different and hostile interests, which interests each must maintain, as an agent and advocate, against other agents and advocates; but Parliament is a deliberative assembly of one nation, with one interest, that of the whole, — where not local purposes, not local prejudices, ought to guide, but the general good, resulting from the general reason of the whole. You choose a member, indeed ; but when you have chosen him, he is not a member of Bristol,...
Pagina 103 - A MANUAL FOR COMMUNICANTS; Or the Order for Administering the Holy Communion; conveniently arranged with Meditations and Prayers from Old English Divines, being the Eucharistica of Samuel Wilberforce, MA, Archdeacon of Surry, (adapted to the American service.) Convenient size for the pocket 37i cents — gilt edges 50 cents.
Pagina 198 - Madmen, madwomen, men with beards, Dunkers, Muggletonians, Come-outers, Groaners, Agrarians, Seventh-day Baptists, Quakers, Abolitionists, Calvinists, Unitarians and Philosophers, — all came successively to the top, and seized their moment, if not their hour, wherein to chide, or pray, or preach, or protest.
Pagina 207 - For, if once a man indulges himself in murder, very soon he comes to think little of robbing; and from robbing he comes next to drinking and Sabbathbreaking, and from that to incivility and procrastination.
