“Out! out, away!
Soul, in this alien house thou hast no stay!
Seek thou thy dwelling in eternity;
'Tis there shall be
Thy hiding-place, thy nest,
Where nor the world, nor self, can break thy rest.
Within the heart of God,
There is thy still abode,
There may'st thou dwell at rest and be at home,
Howe'er the body here may toil and roam."

“ Heaven-born, the soul a heavenward course must hold;

Beyond the visible world she soars to seek
(For what delights the sense is false and weak)
Ideal form, the universal mould.
The wise man, I affirm, can find no rest
In that which perishes; nor will he lend
His heart to aught that doth on time depend.”

MICHAEL ANGELO.
