by Marvell, Andrew
...still his sword seems hanging o'er my head. 
The nation had been ours, but his one soul 
Moves the great bulk, and animates the whole. 
He secrecy with number hath enchased, 
Courage with age, maturity with haste: 
The valiant's terror, riddle of the wise, 
And still his falchion all our knots unties. 
Where did he learn those arts that cost us dear? 
Where below earth, or where above the sphere? 
He seems a king by long succession born, 
And yet the same to be a...Read more of this...

...y Thine infinity; 
So surely anchor'd on 
The steadfast rock of immortality. 

With wide-embracing love 
Thy Spirit animates eternal years, 
Pervades and broods above, 
Changes, sustains, dissolves, creates, and rears. 

Though earth and man were gone, 
And suns and universes cease to be, 
And Thou were left alone, 
Every existence would exist in Thee. 

There is not room for Death, 
Nor atom that his might could render void: 
Thou--Thou art Being and Breath,

Let ev'ry heart to this bright vision rise;
While the tomb safe retains its sacred trust,
Till life divine re-animates his dust.

by Schiller, Friedrich von
...share, by simply seeing, their delight.
Heaven breathes the soul into the minstrel's breast,
But with that soul he animates the rest;
The god inspires the mortal--but to God,
In turn, the mortal lifts thee from the sod.
Oh, not in vain to heaven the bard is dear;
Holy himself--he hallows those who hear!
The busy mart let justice still control,
Weighing the guerdon to the toil!--What then?
A God alone claims joy--all joy is his,
Flushing with unsought light the cheeks...Read more of this...

by Aiken, Conrad
...
I am not sure that you can be refuted.
At the very last we all put faith in something,—
You in this ghost that animates your world,
This ethical ghost,—and I, you'll say, in reason,—
Or sensuous beauty,—or in my secret self . . .
Though as for that you put your faith in these,
As much as I do—and then, forsaking reason,—
Ascending, you would say, to intuition,—
You predicate this ghost of yours, as well.
Of course, you might have argued,—and you shoul...Read more of this...

...We have constantly heads overcome with wine; the
presence of wine alone animates our society. Then
leave off thy counsel, O ignorant penitent! [you see
that] we are the adorers of wine, and that the lips of
the object of our love are turned to our desires....Read more of this...
