Seite 162 - The fear o' hell's a hangman's whip To haud the wretch in order ; But where ye feel your honour grip. Let that aye be your border ; Its slightest touches, instant pause — Debar a' side pretences ; And resolutely keep its laws, Uncaring consequences.
Seite 163 - ... disfigure them, are yet, I am convinced, original and component parts of the human soul ; those senses of the mind, if I may be allowed the expression, which connect us with, and link us to, those awful obscure realities — an all-powerful and equally beneficent God, and a world to come, beyond death and the grave.
