Side 303 - What though the field be lost? All is not lost; the unconquerable will, And study of revenge, immortal hate, And courage never to submit or yield: And what is else not to be overcome?
Side 131 - ... in the morning thou shalt say, Would God it were even! and at even thou shalt say, Would God it were morning! for the fear of thine heart wherewith thou shalt fear, and for the sight of thine eyes which thou shalt see.
Side 223 - And put not forth my goodness, which is free To act or not, Necessity and Chance Approach not me, and what I will is Fate.

Side 39 - For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

Side 316 - There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, And fire out of his mouth devoured; Coals were kindled by it. He bowed the heavens also, and came down; And darkness was under his feet. And he rode upon a cherub and did fly; Yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind.
Side 149 - Merciful heaven! What, man! ne'er pull your hat upon your brows; Give sorrow words: the grief that does not speak Whispers the o'erfraught heart, and bids it break.
Side 74 - And semivital worms. But he refused The birthright of their being, knowledge, power, The skill which wields the elements, the thought Which pierces this dim universe like light, Self-empire, and the majesty of love ; For thirst of which they fainted. Then Prometheus Gave wisdom, which is strength, to Jupiter, And, with this law alone " Let man be free," Clothed him with the dominion of wide Heaven.
Side 316 - The voice of thy thunder was in the heaven : the lightnings lightened the world : the earth trembled and shook.
