Famous quotes containing the words francis quarles, quarles and/or francis:

    Eternall God, O thou that onely art
    The sacred Fountain of eternall light,
    And blessed Loadstone of my better part;
    O thou my heart’s desire, my soul’s delight,
    Reflect upon my soul, and touch my heart,
    And then my heart shall prize no good above thee;
    And then my soul shall know thee; knowing, love thee;
    And then my trembling thoughts shall never start
    From thy commands, or swerve the least degree,
    Or once presume to move, but as they move in thee.
    Francis Quarles (1592–1644)

    Like to the Artick needle, that doth guide
    The wand’ring shade by his magnetick pow’r,
    And leaves his silken Gnomon to decide
    The question of the controverted houre;
    —Francis Quarles (1592–1644)

    I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless;
    Ills have no weights, and tears no bitterness;
    —Henry Francis Lyte (1793–1847)
