    Lead, kindly Light, amid the encircling gloom,
    Lead thou me on!
The night is dark, and I am far from home—
    Lead thou me on!
Keep thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene,—one step enough for me.
          The Pillar of the Cloud.
2
    And with the morn those angel faces smile
Which I have loved long since and lost awhile.
          The Pillar of the Cloud.

    Growth is the only evidence of life.
          Dr. Scott, cited by Cardinal Newman.

    It is thy very energy of thought
Which keeps thee from thy God.
          Dream of Gerontius.

    Where good and ill together blent,
Wage an undying strife.
          A Martyr Convert.

    There is in stillness oft a magic power
To calm the breast when struggling passions lower,
Touched by its influence, in the soul arise
Diviner feelings, kindred with the skies.
          Solitude.
7
    Time hath a taming hand.
          Persecution.
8
      A great memory does not make a philosopher, any more than a dictionary can be called a grammar.
          Knowledge in Relation to Culture.
