Sayfa 37 - I will indulge in my sacred fury; I will triumph over mankind by the honest confession, that I have stolen the golden vases of the Egyptians to build up a tabernacle for my God far away from the confines of Egypt. If you forgive me, I rejoice ; if you are angry, I can bear it : the die is cast ; the book is written, to be read either now or by posterity, I care not which : it may well wait a century for a reader, as God has waited six thousand years for an observer...
Sayfa 59 - For humanity sweeps onward: where today the martyr stands, On the morrow crouches Judas with the silver in his hands ; Far in front the cross stands ready and the crackling fagots burn, While the hooting mob of yesterday in silent awe return To glean up the scattered ashes into History's golden urn.
Sayfa 13 - O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past tracing out!
Sayfa 55 - The one seemed woman to the waist, and fair, But ended foul in many a scaly fold, Voluminous and vast — a serpent armed With mortal sting. About her middle round A cry of Hell-hounds never-ceasing barked With wide Cerberean mouths full loud, and rung A hideous peal; yet, when they list, would creep, If aught disturbed their noise, into her womb, And kennel there; yet there still barked and howled Within unseen.
Sayfa 32 - ... boundless prairies, should go flashing along the slimy decks of old sunken galleons, which have been rotting for ages ; that messages of friendship and love, from warm living bosoms should burn over the cold green bones of men and women, whose hearts, once as warm as ours, burst as the eternal gulfs closed and roared over them, centuries ago...
Sayfa 13 - And men shall speak of the might of Thy terrible acts : And I will declare Thy greatness.
Sayfa 32 - I say, all but a miracle of art, that the thoughts of living men, — the thoughts that we think up here on the earth's surface in the cheerful light of day, — about the markets, and the exchanges, and the seasons, and the elections, and the treaties, and the wars, and all the fond nothings of daily life, should clothe themselves with elemental sparks, and shoot with fiery speed in a moment, in the twinkling...
Sayfa 91 - Ohio report, which contains 151 marriages of cousins, followed by deaf and dumb, blind, idiotic, or insane offspring, would indicate the existence of 332 other marriages of cousins in the same population, not followed by such defects. The counties which furnish...
Sayfa 50 - ... their thought untold ; And many live, and are ranked as mad, And placed in the cold world's ban, For sending their bright far-seeing souls Three centuries in the van. They toil in penury and grief, Unknown, if not maligned ; Forlorn, forlorn, bearing the scorn Of the meanest of mankind. But yet the world goes round and round, And the genial seasons run, And ever the truth comes uppermost, And ever is justice done.
Sayfa 91 - ... requisite facts. Parents are often sensitive on this score; and it is a delicate matter for principals to attempt investigations which the friends of the beneficiaries suppose to be unauthorized by the regulations of their various institutions. I feel, however, that my researches give me authority to say, that over ten per cent, of the deaf and dumb, and over five per cent, cent, of the blind, and near fifteen per cent, of the idiotic in our State institutions for subjects of those defects, are...
