How can Life grant us boon of living, compensateFor dull grey ugliness and pregnant hateUnless we dareThe soul's dominion? Each time we make a choice, we payWith courage to behold the resistless day,And count it fair.
A sonnet is a moment's monument, Memorial from the soul's eternity To one dead deathless hour.Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Science sans conscience n'est que ruine de l'a" me. Science without conscience is the soul's perdition.
Our yearnings are homesicknesses for heaven; our sighings are for God, just as children that cry themselves asleep away from home, and sob in their slumber, know not that they sob for their parents. The soul's inarticulate moanings are the affections yearning for the Infinite, and having no one to tell them what it is that ails them.henry ward beecher
The soul's dark cottage, battered and decayed,Lets in new light through chinks that Time has made;Stronger by weakness, wiser, men becomeAs they draw near to their eternal home.Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view,That stand upon the threshold of the new.Edmund Waller
Most people live, whether physically, intellectually or morally, in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness, and of their soul's resources in general, much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into a habit of using and moving only his little finger. Great emergencies and crises show us how much greater our vital resources are than we had supposed.william james
Variant translations: A sincere man am I From the land where palm trees grow, And I want before I die My soul's verses to bestow.josé martí
Not from without us, only from within, Comes or can ever come upon us light Whereby the soul keeps ever truth in sight. No truth, no strength, no comfort man may win, No grace for guidance, no release from sin, Save of his own soul's giving.algernon charles swinburne
True prayer is an earnest soul's direct converse with its God.
Words are the soul's ambassadors, who go Abroad upon her errands to and fro.
Some books are drenched sands, On which a great soul's wealth lies all in heaps, Like a wrecked argosy.alexander smith
The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd, Lets in new light through chinks that Time has made.
The soul's dark cottage, batter'd and decay'd, Lets in new light through chinks that Time has made.Edmund Waller
I wonder at those who think about their body's food, but do not think about their soul's food. They keep away disturbing food from their belly, but fill up their hearts with destructive subjects.
'Remember, my child: Without innocence the cross is only iron, hope is only an illusion & Ocean soul's nothing but a name...'
