Distress is virtue's opportunity: we only live to teach us how to die.
For love is but discovery:
When that is made, the pleasure's done.
The reconciling grave swallows distinction first, that made us foes; there all lie down in peace together.
When guilt is in its blush of infancy, it trembles in a tenderness of shame; and the first eye that pierces through the veil that hides the secret brings it to the face
Pity's akin to love; and every thought
Of that soft kind is welcome to my soul.
When we're worn,
Hacked hewn with constant service, thrown aside
To rust in peace, or rot in hospitals.
Of the king's creation you may be; but he who makes a count ne'er made a man.
There is no courage but in innocence; no constancy but in an honest cause.
Quote of the day
Christ shared our experience; he suffered as we suffer; he died as we shall die, and for forty days in the desert he underwent the struggle between good and evil.
May 26, 1746
