Types in these thou dost possess ;—
Restless, onward thou must press,
Never halt nor languor know,
To the Perfect wouldst thou go ;—
Let thy reach with Breadth extend
Till the world it comprehend—
Dive into the Depth to see
Germ and root of all that be.
Ever onward must thy soul ;—
Tis the progress gains the goal ;
Ever widen more its bound ;
In the Full the clear is found,
And the Truth—dwells under ground.
e. ScHILLEB—Sentences qf Confucius.

Ambition is no cure for love.
- Scott--Lay qf the Last Minstrel.
Canto I. St. 27.

'Tis a common proof, That lowliness is young ambition's ladder, Whereto the climber upward turns his face ; IBut when he once attains the upmost round, He then unto the ladder turns his back, Looks in the clouds, scorning the base degrees By which he did ascend.

p. .Julius (aesar. Act II. Sc. 1.

Virtue is chok'd with foul ambition.
Q. Henry VI. Pt. II. Act III. Sc. 1.

How many a rustic Milton has pass'd by,
Stifling the speechless longings of his lieart,
In unremitting drudgery and care!

His energies, no longer tameless then,
To mould a pin, or fabricate a nail!

r. ShELLEy— Queen Mab. Pt. V. St. 9.

I was born to other things.
