I believe that fallen creatures perish, perish for ever, for only good can live, and good has not been theirs; but how durst men forge our Saviour's words "eternal death " into so horrible a meaning?

The seed ye sow, another reaps; The wealth ye find, another keeps: The robes ye weave, another wears: The arms ye forge another bears.Percy Bysshe Shelley
