SHAKESPEARE.

SHAKESPEARE.

SHAKESPEARE.

BYRON,

How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is

THE USES OF ADVERSITY. To have a thankless child !

Sweet are the uses of adversity, King Lear, Act i. Sc. 4

Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,

Wears yet a precious jewel in his head. O, that way madness lies ; let me shun that;

As You Like It, Act i. Sc. 3.

SHAKESPEARE.
No more of that.
King Lear, Act iii. Sc. 4. .

He that lacks time to mourn, lacks time to mend.

Eternity mourns that. 'T is an ill cure I would that I were low laid in my grave;

For life's worst ills, to have no time to feel them. I am not worth this coil that's made for me.

Where sorrow 's held intrusive and turned out, King Fohn, Act ii. Sc. I.

There wisdom will not enter, nor true power,

Nor aught that dignifies humanity. I am a tainted wether of the flock.

Philip Van Artevelde, Part I. Act i. Sc. 5. H. TAYLOR. Merchant of Venice, Act iv. Sc. I.

SHAKESPEARE.

The good are better made by ill, No words suffice the secret soul to show,

As odors crushed are sweeter still. For truth denies all eloquence to woe.

Facqueline.

S. ROGERS.
The Corsair, Cant. iii.

As aromatic plants bestow
Where peace

No spicy fragrance while they grow ;
And rest can never dwell, hope never comes, But, crushed or trodden to the ground,
That comes to all.

Diffuse their balmy sweets around.
Paradise Lost, Book i.
MILTON. The Captivity, Act i.

GOLDSMITH.
The strongest and the fiercest spirit As sunshine, broken in the rill,
That fought in heaven, now fiercer by despair.

Though turned astray, is sunshine still.
Paradise Lost, Book ii.

MILTON.
Fire Worshippers.

MOORE.
Tho' losses and crosses
RESIGNATION.

Be lessons right severe,
But hushed be every thought that springs

There's wit there, ye 'll get there,

Ye'll find nae otherwhere. From out the bitterness of things.

Epistle 10 Davie. Addressed to Sir G. H. B.

WORDSWORTH.

By adversity are wrought 'T is impious in a good man to be sad.

The greatest works of admiration, Night Thoughts, Night iv.

DR. E. YOUNG.

And all the fair examples of renown
Out of distress and misery are grown.
On the Earl of Southampton.

S. DANIEL.
HEAVEN A REFUGE FOR THE WRETCHED.
Who ne'er his bread in sorrow ate,

More safe I sing with mortal voice, unchanged

To hoarse or mute, though fallen on evil days, Who ne'er the mournful midnight hours

-On evil days though fallen, and evil tongues. Weeping upon his bed has sate,

Paradise Lost, Book vii.

MILTON.
He knows you not, ye Heavenly Powers.
Hyperion, Book i. : Motto: from Goethe's Wilhelm Meisser. Calamity is man's true touchstone.

LONGFELLOW.
Four Plays in One: The Triumph of Honor, Sc. I.

BEAUMONT and FLETCHER.
In man's most dark extremity
Oft succor dawns from Heaven.

Like a ball that bounds The Lord of the Isles, Cant. i.

SCOTT. According to the force with which 't was thrown,

So in affliction's violence, he that 's wise
The path of sorrow, and that path alone, The more he's cast down will the higher rise.
Leads to the land where sorrow is unknown.

Microcosmos.

NABB. To an AMicled Protestant Lady.

COWPER.

O, fear not in a world like this, Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your

And thou shalt know erelong, — anguish —

Know how sublime a thing it is
Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

To suffer and be strong.
Sacred Songs : Come, ye Disconsolate.
MOORE. | The Light of Stars.

LONGFELLOW.
