Strona 173 - ... once or twice in our rough island-story, The path of duty was the way to glory ; He that walks it, only thirsting For the right, and learns to deaden Love of self, before his journey closes, He shall find the stubborn thistle bursting Into glossy purples, which outredden All voluptuous garden-roses. Not once or twice in our fair island-story, The path of duty was the way to glory...
Strona 426 - The new religion openly aimed at dissolving these ties: unless, therefore, it was his duty to adopt that religion, it seemed to be his duty to put it down. Inasmuch then as the theology of Christianity did not appear to him true or of divine origin; inasmuch as this strange history of a crucified God was not credible to him, and a system which purported to rest entirely upon a foundation to him so wholly unbelievable, could not be foreseen by him to be that renovating agency which, after all abatements,...
Strona 426 - It is a bitter thought, how different a thing the Christianity of the world might have been, if the Christian faith had been adopted as the religion of the empire under the auspices of Marcus Aurelius instead of those of Constantino.
Strona 419 - His Meditations, composed in the tumult of a camp, are still extant ; and he even condescended to give lessons on philosophy, in a more public manner than was perhaps consistent with the modesty of a sage or the dignity of an emperor.
Strona 173 - ... in the lower part of the belly, and in the instant falling from his horse, his body was not found till the next morning ; till when there was some hope he might have been a prisoner, though his nearest friends, who knew his temper, received small comfort from that imagination. Thus fell that incomparable young man in the...
Strona 114 - In the name of God amen. The 1 st day of September in the 36th year of the reign of our sovereign lord Henry VIII by the grace of God King of England, France and Ireland, defender of the faith and of the church of England and also of Ireland, in earth the supreme head, and in the year of our Lord God 1544.
Strona 167 - A patriot both the King and country serves; Prerogative and privilege preserves; Of each, our laws the certain limit show; One must not ebb nor t'other overflow; Betwixt the Prince and Parliament we stand, The barriers of the state on either hand; May neither overflow, for then they drown the land.
Strona 426 - But it would be equally unjust to him and false to truth to deny that no one plea which can be urged for punishing anti-Christian teaching was wanting to Marcus Aurelius for punishing, as he did, the propagation of Christianity. No Christian more firmly believes that Atheism is false and tends to the dissolution of society than Marcus Aurelius believed the same things of Christianity — he who, of all men then living, might have been thought the most capable of appreciating it.
Strona 171 - When there was any overture, or hope of peace, he would be more erect, and vigorous, and exceedingly solicitous to press anything which he thought might promote it, and sitting among his friends, often, after a deep silence, and frequent sighs, would, with a shrill and sad accent, ingeminate the word Peace, Peace...
Strona 430 - ... still perfect, clothing the figure as it were with an imperial robe of light. It is the most majestic representation of the kingly character that ever the world has seen. A sight of the old heathen emperor is enough to create an evanescent sentiment of loyalty even in a democratic bosom, so august does he look, so fit to rule, so worthy of man's profoundest homage and obedience, so inevitably attractive of his love.
