'T is heaven alone that is given away,
'T is only God may be had for the asking.
JAMES RUSSELL LOWELL: _The Vision of Sir Launfal._
All are but parts of one stupendous whole,
Whose body Nature is, and God the soul.
POPE: _Essay on Man,_ Epis. i., Line 267.
Thou art, O God, the life and light
Of all this wondrous world we see;
Its glow by day, its smile by night,
Are but reflections caught from Thee:
Where'er we turn, Thy glories shine,
And all things fair and bright are Thine.
MOORE: _Thou Art, O God._
And they were canopied by the blue sky,
So cloudless, clear, and purely beautiful
That God alone was to be seen in heaven.
BYRON: _The Dream,_ St. 4.
The conscious water saw its God and blushed.
RICHARD CRASHAW: _Epigram._
From Thee, great God, we spring, to Thee we tend,--
Path, motive, guide, original, and end.
DR. JOHNSON: _Motto to the Rambler,_ No. 7.
