Quotes

  • If blasted hopes and ruin'd name,
    And all the venom Love lends Shame —
    The violent death, and rabble eye,
    To look upon its agony ;
    If these are not enough to win
    A pardon for Earth's deadliest sin,
    Words will not, cannot! — never dare
    Tell me it may be won by prayer !
    The coward prayer, the coward tear,
    Not from remorse wrung, but from fear!

Letitia Elizabeth Landon, The New Monthly Magazine (1831 part 2) 'The Convict'

  • It is the duty of nations, as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truths announced in the Holy Scriptures, and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
