7058
    I see my way as birds their trackless way.
I shall arrive,—what time, what circuit first,
I ask not; but unless God send his hail
Or blinding fire-balls, sleet or stifling snow,
In some time, his good time, I shall arrive:
He guides me and the bird. In his good time.
          Paracelsus. Part i.
7059
    Truth is within ourselves.
          Paracelsus. Part i.

              Are there not, dear Michal,
Two points in the adventure of the diver,—
One, when a beggar he prepares to plunge;
One, when a prince he rises with his pearl?
Festus, I plunge.
          Paracelsus. Part i.
7061
              God is the perfect poet,
Who in his person acts his own creations.
          Paracelsus. Part ii.
7062
    Error has no end.
          Paracelsus. Part iii.

    The sad rhyme of the men who proudly clung
To their first fault, and withered in their pride.
          Paracelsus. Part iv.
7064
              Every joy is gain
And gain is gain, however small.
          Paracelsus. Part iv.
7065
              Jove strikes the Titans down
Not when they set about their mountain-piling
But when another rock would crown the work.
          Paracelsus. Part iv.
7066
              The peerless cup afloat
Of the lake-lily is an urn some nymph
Swims bearing high above her head.
          Paracelsus. Part iv.
7067
    I give the fight up: let there be an end,
A privacy, an obscure nook for me.
I want to be forgotten even by God.
          Paracelsus. Part v.
7068
              Progress is
The law of life: man is not Man as yet.
          Paracelsus. Part v.
