act singly, and what you have already done singly will justify you now. greatness appeals to the future. if i can be firm enough today to do right, and scorn eyes, i must have done so much right before as to defend me now. be it how it will, do right now. always scorn appearances, and you always may. the force of character is cumulative. all the foregone days of virtue work themselves into this one. what makes the majesty of the heroes of the senate and the fields, which so fills the imagination? the consciousness of a train of great days and victories behind. they shed an united light on the advancing actor. he is attended as by a visible escort of angels.
i heard the owl’s scream and the crickets cry, the innocent sleep that knits up ravelled sleave of care, the death of each day’s life sore labours. bath balm of hurt minds great nature’s second course chief nourisher in life’s feast. be not lost so poorly in your thoughts it is the eye of childhood that fears a painted devil. riches are before our eyes but we refuse to see. only wisdom is wealth.
eternity was in our lips and eyes, bliss in our brows bent none our parts so poor but was a race of heaven. the strong necessity of time commands our services awhile but my full heart remains in use with you. honey i’m sorry that i just walked away, the hated are grown to strength are newly grown to love. at thy sovereign leisure read and write. let love give wisdom to those that have it let those that are fools use their talents. we grow as we learn, if one breaks one will hold. love whispers in silence better a witty fool than a fool with knowledge. fear holds dominion over all men. none can deceive nature. she fulfills her promise. our patience will be our justification, hope needs a humble hand.
