Side 181 - Yet toil on, toil on : thou art in thy duty, be out of it who may; thou toilest for the altogether indispensable, for daily bread. 'A second man I honour, and still more highly: Him who is seen toiling for the spiritually indispensable ; not daily bread, but the bread of Life.
Side 213 - These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this unsubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind.
Side 212 - So has it been from the beginning, so will it be to the end. ' Generation after generation takes to itself the Form of a Body; ' and forth-issuing from Cimmerian Night, on Heaven's mission ' APPEARS. What Force and Fire is in each he expends: one ' grinding in the mill of Industry ; one hunter-like climbing the ' giddy Alpine heights of Science; one madly dashed in pieces ' on the rocks of Strife, in war with his fellow :—and then the ' Heaven-sent is recalled ; his earthly Vesture falls away,...
Side 52 - For Matter, were it never so despicable, is Spirit, the manifestation of Spirit : were it never so honourable, can it be more? The thing Visible, nay the thing Imagined, the thing in any way conceived as Visible, what is it but a Garment, a Clothing of the higher, celestial Invisible, ' ' unimaginable, formless, dark with excess of bright...
Side 153 - Priest, in all times, have spoken and suffered; bearing testimony, through life and through death, of the Godlike that is in Man, and how in the Godlike only has he Strength and Freedom?
Side 210 - Then sawest thou that this fair Universe, were it in the meanest province thereof, is in very deed the star-domed City of God ; that through every star, through every grass-blade, and most through every Living Soul, the glory of a present God still beams. But Nature, which is the Time-vesture of God, and reveals Him to the wise, hides Him from the foolish.
Side 156 - On which ground, too, let him who gropes painfully in darkness or uncertain light, and prays vehemently that the dawn may ripen into day, lay this other precept well to heart, which to me was of invaluable service : u Do the Duty which lies nearest thee,'" which thou knowest to be a Duty ! Thy second Duty will already have become clearer.
Side 135 - Despicable biped ! what is the sum-total of the worst that lies before thee ? Death ? Well, Death; and say the pangs of Tophet too, and all that the Devil and Man may, will, or can do against thee ! Hast thou not a heart; canst thou not suffer...
Side 138 - O thou who art able to write a Book, which once in the two centuries or oftener there is a man gifted to do, envy not him whom they name City-builder, and inexpressibly pity him whom they name Conqueror or Cityburner ! Thou too art a Conqueror and Victor ; but of the true sort, namely over the Devil : thou too hast built what will outlast all marble and metal, and be a wonder-bringing City of the Mind, a Temple and Seminary and Prophetic Mount, whereto all kindreds of the Earth will pilgrim.
Side 133 - To me the Universe was all void of Life, of Purpose, of Volition, even of Hostility : it was one huge, dead, immeasurable Steam-engine, rolling on, in its dead indifference, to grind me limb from limb.
