Side 70 - The stars shall fade away, the sun himself Grow dim with age, and Nature sink in years, But thou shalt flourish in immortal youth, Unhurt amidst the war of elements, The wreck of matter, and the crush of worlds.

Side 39 - We shall all meet finally: we only require different degrees of discipline, suited to our different tempers, to prepare us for final happiness.
