(1764 - 1831)
 << Prev Page    Displaying page 3 of 3

The wheels of nature are not made to roll backward; everything presses on toward Eternity; from the birth of Time an impetuous current has set in, which bears all the sons of men toward that interminable ocean. Meanwhile heaven is attracting to itself whatever is congenial to its nature, is enriching itself by the spoils of earth, and collecting within its capacious bosom, whatever is pure, permanent and divine.
      - [Destiny]

There is no worm of the earth, no spire of grass, no leaf, no twig, wherein we see not the footsteps of a Deity.
      - [God]

Think not that guilt requires the burning torches of the Furies to agitate and torment it. Their own frauds, their crimes, their remembrances of the past, their terrors of the future,--these are the domestic furies that are ever present to the mind of the impious.
      - [Guilt]

Vices are seldom single.
      - [Vice]

We are inclined to think that the study of the classics is, on the whole, advantageous to public morals, by inspiring an elegance of sentiments and an elevation of soul which we should in vain seek for elsewhere.
      - [Education]

We are to seek wisdom and understanding only in the length of days.
      - [Age]

We should be more anxious that our afflictions should benefit us than that they should be speedily removed from us.
      - [Affliction]

What delight will it afford to renew the sweet counsel we have taken together, to recount the toils, the combats, and the labor of the way, and to approach, not the house, but the throne of God, in company, in order to join in the symphonies of heavenly voices, and lose ourselves amidst the splendors and fruitions of the beatific vision.
      - [Heaven]

What is friendship in virtuous minds but the concentration of benevolent emotions heightened by respect, and increased by exercise on one or more objects?
      - [Friendship]

What other book besides the Bible could be heard in public assemblies from year to year, with an attention that never tires, and an interest that never cloys?
      - [Bible]

Wisdom and truth, the offspring of the sky, are immortal; while cunning and deception, the meteors of the earth, after glittering for a moment, must pass away.
      - [Falsehood]

Your employment is that of the Son of God; it makes no great appearance before men, but it will finally arise in majesty to overshadow all created glory.
      - [Installation Service]

His [Burke's] imperial fancy has laid all nature under tribute, and has collected riches from every scene of the creation and every walk of art.
      - Apology for the Freedom of the Press
         (sec. IV) [Authorship]
