Strona 182 - The sun to me is dark And silent as the moon, When she deserts the night, Hid in her vacant interlunar cave.
Strona 180 - And buried; but, O yet more miserable! Myself my sepulchre, a moving grave; Buried, yet not exempt, By privilege of death and burial, From worst of other evils, pains and wrongs ; But made hereby obnoxious more To all the miseries of life, Life in captivity Among inhuman foes.
Strona 200 - Venus, take my votive glass, Since I am not what I was ; What from this day I shall be, venus, let me never see.
Strona 177 - Be of good courage, I begin to feel Some rousing motions in me, which dispose To something extraordinary my thoughts.
Strona 174 - From off the altar, where an offering burn'd, As in a fiery column charioting His godlike presence, and from some great act Or benefit reveal'd to Abraham's race? Why was my breeding order'd and prescrib'd As of a person separate to God...

Strona 4 - No place affords a more striking conviction of the vanity of human hopes, than a publick library ; for who can see the wall crowded on every side by mighty volumes, the works of laborious meditation and accurate inquiry, now scarcely known but by the catalogue...
Strona 165 - To lessen that disdain with which scholars are inclined to look on the common business of the world, and the unwillingness with which they condescend to learn what is not to be found in any system of philosophy, it may be necessary to consider, that though admiration is excited by abstruse researches and remote discoveries, yet pleasure is not given, nor affection conciliated, but by softer accomplishments, and qualities more easily communicable to those about us.
