The way to bliss lies not on beds of down,
  And he that had no cross deserves no crown.
      - Esther [Bliss]

Man is man's A, B, C. There's none that can
  Read God aright, unless he first spell man.
      - Hieroglyphics of the Life of Man [Man]

Physicians, of all men, are most happy: whatever good success soever they have, the world proclaimeth and what faults they commit, the earth covereth.
      - Hieroglyphics of the Life of Man
        [Medicine]

Expect, but fear not, Death: Death cannot kill,
  Till Time (that first must seal his patent) will.
    Would'st thou live long? keep Time in high esteem:
      Whom gone, if thou canst not recall, redeem.
      - Hieroglyphics of the Life of Man (ep. 6)
        [Time]

Even as the needle that directs the hour,
  (Touched with the loadstone) by the secret power
    Of hidden Nature, points upon the pole;
      Even so the wavering powers of my soul,
        Touch'd by the virtue of Thy spirit, flee
          From what is earth, and point alone to Thee.
      - Job Mil. Med. (IV) [Influence]

My mind's my kingdom.
      - School of the Heart (ode IV, st. 3) [Mind]

The sun-observing marigold.
      - The School of the Heart (ode XXX, st. 5)
        [Marigolds]

Is not this lily pure?
  What fuller can procure
    A white so perfect, spotless clear
      As in this flower doth appear?
      - The School of the Heart--Ode XXX (st. 4)
        [Lilies]
