A sonnet is a moment's monument, Memorial from the Soul's eternity To one dead deathless hour.
Farewell (sweet Cooke-ham) where I first obtained Grace from that grace where perfect grace remained; And where the muses gave their full consent, I should have power the virtuous to content; Where princely palace willed me to indite, The sacred story of the soul's delight.Aemilia Lanyer
Science sans conscience n'est que ruine de l'a" me. Science without conscience is the soul's perdition.
Patchwork? Ah, no! It was memory, imagination, history, biography, joy, sorrow, philosophy, religion, romance, realism, life, love and death; and over all, like a halo, the love of the artist for his work and the soul's longing for earthly immortality.eliza calvert hall
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
I count life just a stuff To try the soul's strength on.Robert Browning
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
Who doubting tyranny, and fainting under Fortune's false lottery, desperately run To death, for dread of death; that soul's most stout, That, bearing all mischance, dares last it out.
Prayer is the soul's sincere desire, Uttered or unexpressed, The motion of a hidden fire That trembles in the breast.james montgomery
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.
So for thy spirit did devise Its Maker seemly garniture, Of its own essence parcel pure, From grave simplicities a dress, And reticent demureness, And love encinctured with reserve; Which the woven vesture would subserve. For outward robes in their ostents Should show the soul's habiliments. Therefore I say, Thou'rt fair even so, But better Fair I use to know.Francis Thompson
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.
