I made a posy while the day ran by:
Here will I smell my remnant out, and tie
My life within this band.
But Time did beckon to the flowers, and they
By noon most cunningly did steal away,
And withered in my hand.

[Of him that speaks ill, consider the life more than the word.]
The Sundaies of man's life, Thredded together on time's string, Make bracelets to adorn the wife Of the eternal, glorious King. On Sunday heaven's gates stand ope; Blessings are plentiful and rife. More plentiful than hope.
Rise, heart; thy Lord is risen. Sing His praise Without delays, Who takes thee by the hand, that thou likewise With Him mayst rise: That, as His death calcined thee to dust, His life may make thee gold, and, much more, just.
There is an hour wherein a man might be happy all his life, could he find it.
I struck the board, and cried, 'No more.
I will abroad.'
What? shall I ever sigh and pine?
My lines and life are free; free as the road,
Loose as the wind, as large as store.
The book of books, the storehouse and magazine of life and comfort, the holy Scriptures.
Life without a friend is death without a witnesse.
[Life without a friend is death without a witness.]
Life is half spent before we know what it is.
Between the businesse of life and the day of death, a space ought to be interposed.
