Yet in the being and in the working of a faithful man is there already (as all faith, from the beginning, gives assurance) a something that pertains not to this wild death-element of Time; that triumphs over Time, and is, and will be, when Time shall be no more.
Página 67 - Led softly, by the stillness of the night, Led like a murderer, (and such it proves !) Strays (wretched rover !) o'er the pleasing past ; In quest of wretchedness perversely strays ; And finds all desert now; and meets the ghosts Of my departed joys...
Página 490 - Both must be blamed, both pardon'd ; — 'twas just so " With Fox and Pitt full forty years ago ; " So Walpole, Pulteney ;— factions in all times, " Have had their follies, ministers their crimes."
