Quotes edit

  • Though I were gifted with an angel's tongue,
    And voice like that with which the prophets sung,
    Yet if mild charity were not within,
    'T were all an impious mockery and sin.
    • Charity.
  • Leaning on thy dear faithful breast,
    I would resign my breath,
    And in thy loved embraces lose
    The bitterness of death.
    • A View Of Death.
