Strana 172 - Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that Thou hast made, and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of Thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness.
Strana 70 - Such an act That blurs the grace and blush of modesty, Calls virtue hypocrite, takes off the rose From the fair forehead of an innocent love, And sets a blister there, makes marriage-vows As false as dicers' oaths : 0, such a deed As from the body of contraction plucks The very soul, and sweet religion
Strana 173 - love her, comfort her, honour, and keep her in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto her, so long as ye both shall live ?" These are genuine, honest, and conscientious words. No mystic languor, here or elsewhere. This religion is not made for women who dream, yearn, and sigh,

Strana 137 - steal from the humble-bees, And for night-tapers crop their waxen thighs And light them at the fiery glow-worm's eyes, To have my love to bed and to arise; And pluck the wings from painted butterflies To fan the moonbeams from his sleeping eyes. . . . Come, wait upon him; lead him to my bower. 1 Midsummer
Strana 275 - undazzled eyes at the full midday beam; purging and unsealing her long-abused sight at the fountain itself of heavenly radiance ; while the whole noise of timorous and flocking birds, with those also that love the twilight, flutter about, amazed at what she means, and in their envious gabble would prognosticate a year of sects and schisms.
Strana 121 - why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners ? . . . What should such fellows as I do crawling between earth and heaven ? We are arrant knaves, all; believe none of us."» When he has killed Polonius by accident, he hardly repents it; it is one fool less. He jeers lugubriously :
