Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Purpose
 
Make thick my blood,
Stop up the access and passage to remorse,
That no compunctious visitings of nature
Shake my fell purpose.
        Shakespeare.—Macbeth, Act I. Scene 5.
  1
Yet I doubt not through the ages
  One increasing purpose runs,
And the thoughts of men are widen’d
  With the process of the suns.
        Tennyson.—Locksley Hall, Stanza 69.
  2
The lights of knowledge and religion, of learning human and divine, of letters, science and the arts, have, as by a law of nature, followed the track of the sun.
        Guthrie.—The Gospel in Ezekiel, Chap. ii. Page 39.
