How shall I lose the sin, yet keep the sense,
And love th'offender, yet detest th'offence?
How happy is the blameless Vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Now warm in love, now with'ring in my bloom, Lost in a convent's solitary gloom!
Of all affliction taught a lover yet,
'Tis sure the hardest science to forget!
Oh happy state! when souls each other draw,
When love is liberty, and nature, law.
Oh name forever sad! forever dear!
Still breath'd in sighs, still usher'd with a tear.
Quote of the day
God is not glorified in any transaction upon earth so much as in the conversion of a sinner.
