The SOUL was like a Star, and dwelt apart;
Thou hadst a voice whose sound was like the sea :
Pure as the naked heavens, majestic, free,
So didst thou travel on life’s common way;
In cheerful godliness, and yet thy heart
The lowliest duties
The thoughtful SOUL to solitude retries.
The windows of my SOUL I throw
Wide open to the sun.
There is some SOUL of goodness in things evil,
Would men observingly distil it out.
Thinking is the talking of the SOUL with itself.
Thought is the SOUL of act.
To be able to practice five things everywhere under heaven constitutes perfect virtue...[They are] gravity, generosity of SOUL, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.
To be always fortunate, and to pass through life with a SOUL that has never known sorrow, is to be ignorant of one half of nature.
True Merit, like a river, the deeper it is, the less noise it
Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the SOUL.
Trust like the SOUL never returns, once it is gone.
Truth is the foundation of real spirituality and courage is
What is a friend? A single SOUL dwelling in two bodies.
What light is to the eyes– what air is to the lungs– what
love is to the heart, liberty is to the SOUL of man.
While civilisation is the body, culture is the SOUL; while
civilisation is the result of knowledge and great painful
researches in diverse fields, culture is the result of
Who so will pray, he must fast and be clean,
And fat his SOUL, make his body lean.
