 << Prev Page    Displaying page 5 of 5
[ Also see Death Eternity Fame Future Futurity Heaven Life Monuments Mortality Paradise Religion Resurrection Soul ]

But felt through all this fleshly dresse
  Bright shootes of everlastingnesse.
      - Henry Vaughan ("The Silurist"),
        The Retreate

Go on and increase in valor, my boy,
  This is the way to the stars.
    [Lat., Macte nova virtute, puer,
      Sic itur ad astra.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil)

Go on and increase in valor, O boy! this is the path to immortality.
  [Lat., Facte nova virtute, puer; sic itur ad astra.]
      - Virgil or Vergil (Publius Virgilius Maro Vergil),
        The Aeneid (IX, 641)

Happy he whose inward ear
  Angel comfortings can hear,
    O'er the rabble's laughter;
      And, while Hatred's fagots burn,
        Glimpses through the smoke discern
          Of the good hereafter.
      - John Greenleaf Whittier, Barclay of Ury

Man is immortal till his work is done.
      - James Williams, Sonnet Ethandune,
        claimed for Williams in the "Guardian", Nov. 17 & 24, 1911

Though inland far we be,
  Our souls have sight of that immortal sea
    Which brought us hither.
      - William Wordsworth,
        Ode--Intimations of Immortality (st. 9)

'Tis immortality, 'tis that alone,
  Amid life's pains, abasements, emptiness,
    The soul can comfort, elevate, and fill.
      That only, and that amply this performs.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night VI, l. 573)
