Page 260 - Almighty hath not built Here for his envy, will not drive us hence: Here we may reign secure: and in my choice. To reign is worth ambition, though in hell ; Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.
Page 133 - To be no more. Sad cure! for who would lose, Though full of pain, this intellectual being, Those thoughts that wander through eternity, To perish rather, swallowed up and lost In the wide womb of uncreated night, Devoid of sense and motion ? And who knows.
Page 264 - Till I have done with this new day, Which now is painful to these eyes, Which have not seen the sun so rise For years — I cannot count them o'er; I lost their long and heavy score When my last brother droop'd and died, And I lay living by his side.

Page 137 - Loved life unlovely ; hugging her to death. We give to time eternity's regard ; And, dreaming, take our passage for our port. Life has no value as an end, but means ; An end, deplorable ! a means, divine ! When 'tis our all, 'tis nothing ; worse than nought ; A nest of pains ; when held as nothing, much...
Page 41 - God commandeth; but they rest in ungodliness and filthiness, prancing in their pride, pranking and pricking, pointing and painting themselves, to be gorgeous and gay : they rest in excess and superfluity, in gluttony and drunkenness, like rats and swine : they rest in brawling and railing, in quarrelling and fighting : they rest in wantonness, in toyish talking, in filthy fleshliness...
