Side 420 - Time may come, when men With angels may participate, and find No inconvenient diet, nor too light fare; And from these corporal nutriments, perhaps, Your bodies may at last turn all to spirit, Improved by tract of time, and wing'd ascend, Ethereal, as we ; or may, at choice, Here or in heavenly paradises dwell, If ye be found obedient, and retain, Unalterably firm, his love entire, Whose progeny you are. Meanwhile enjoy Your fill, what happiness this happy state Can comprehend, incapable of more.
Side xv - THE awful shadow of some unseen Power Floats though unseen among us, visiting This various world with as inconstant wing As summer winds that creep from flower to flower...
Side 303 - There is a spirit which I feel, that delights to do no evil, nor to revenge any wrong ; but delights to endure all things, in hope to enjoy its own in the end. Its hope is to outlive all wrath and contention, and to weary out all exaltation and cruelty, or whatever is of a nature contrary to itself.
Side 66 - Amen, amen I say to you, he that believeth in me, the works that I do, he shall do also; and greater works than these shall he do, because I go to the Father.
Side 317 - The imperfect offices of prayer and praise, His mind was a thanksgiving to the power That made him; it was blessedness and love!

Side 258 - But the same day, as I was in the midst of a game of cat,* and having struck it one blow from the hole, just as I was about to strike it a second time, a voice did suddenly dart from heaven into my soul, which said, ' Wilt thou leave thy sins and go to heaven ? or have thy sins and go to hell...
Side 110 - This opinion, which perhaps prevails as far as human nature is diffused, could become universal only by its truth : those that never heard of one another, would not have agreed in a tale which nothing but experience can make credible. That it is doubted by single cavillers, can very little weaken the general evidence : and some who deny it with their tongues, confess it by their fears.
Side 421 - ... outward shape, The unpolluted temple of the mind, And turns it by degrees to the soul's essence, Till all be made immortal : but when lust By unchaste looks, loose gestures, and foul talk ; But most by lewd and lavish act of sin, Lets in defilement to the inward parts, The soul grows clotted by contagion, Imbodies, and imbrutes, till she quite lose The divine property of her first being.
