Seite 69 - tis madness to defer; Next day the fatal precedent will plead ; Thus on, till wisdom is push'd out of life Procrastination is the thief of time ; Year after year it steals, till all are fled, And to the mercies of a moment leaves The vast concerns of an eternal scene.
Seite 225 - Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God: even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
Seite 69 - The bell strikes one. We take no note of time, But from its loss. To give it then a tongue Is wise in man. As if an angel spoke, I feel the solemn sound. If heard aright, It is the, knell of my departed hours : Where are they?
Seite 134 - The chamber where the good man meets his fate, Is privileg'd beyond the common walk Of virtuous life, quite in the verge of heav'n.
Seite 228 - Whose adorning, let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the orna-ment of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
Seite 231 - For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
Seite 97 - So went on, Foretelling this same time's condition And the division of our amity. WARWICK There is a history in all men's lives, Figuring the natures of the times deceased, The which observed, a man may prophesy, With a near aim, of the main chance of things As yet not come to life, who in their seeds And weak beginning lie intreasured.
Seite 142 - The knell, the shroud, the mattock, and the grave ; The deep damp vault, the darkness, and the worm; These are the bug-bears of a winter's eve, The terrors of the living, not the dead.
Seite 200 - Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness ? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial ? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel ? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?
Seite 229 - The wife hath not power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not power of his own body, but the wife.
