I GREET you as host!
Unfold the pages of my heart
And read therein your welcome. [ Ben Jonson ]
My mind to me a kingdom is;
Such perfect joy therein I find.
That it excels all other bliss
That God or Nature hath assign'd,
Though much I want that most would have.
Yet still my mind forbids to crave. [ Wm. Byrd ]
The chambers in the house of dreams
Are fed with so divine an air.
That Time's hoar wings grow young therein.
And they who walk there are most fair. [ Francis Thomson ]
I will this dreary blank of absence make,
A noble task-time, and will therein strive
To follow excellence, and to overtake
More good than I have won since yet I live. [ Francis Kemble ]
He that seeks danger perishes therein unpitied. [ Proverb ]
Ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein. [ Bible ]
If for anything he loved greatness, it was because therein he might exercise his goodness. [ Sir P. Sidney ]
Who cries out on pride that can therein tax any private party? Doth it not flow as hugely as the sea? [ William Shakespeare ]
The heart needs not for its heaven much space, nor many stars therein, if only the star of love has arisen. [ Jean Paul ]
Weak minds may be injured by novel-reading; but sensible people find both amusement and instruction therein. [ Beecher ]
Given the books of a man, it is not difficult. I think, to detect therein the personality of the man, and the station in life to which he was born. [ Stoddard ]
The path of nature is, indeed, a narrow one, and it is only the immortals that seek it, and, when they find it, do not find themselves cramped therein. [ Lowell ]
Business in a certain sort of men is a mark of understanding, and they are honored for it. Their souls seek repose in agitation, as children do by being rocked in a cradle. They may pronounce themselves as serviceable to their friends as troublesome to themselves. No one distributes his money to others, but every one therein distributes his time and his life. There is nothing of which we are so prodigal as of those two things, of which to be thrifty would be both commendable and useful. [ Montaigne ]
