“Light, Gods eldest daughter, is a principal beauty in a building.”
—Thomas Fuller (16081661)
“O thou undaunted daughter of desires!
By all thy dower of lights and fires;
By all the eagle in thee, all the dove;
By all thy lives and deaths of love;
By thy large draughts of intellectual day,
And by thy thirsts of love more large then they;
By all thy brim-filld Bowls of fierce desire,
By thy last Mornings draught of liquid fire;
By the full kingdom of that final kiss
That seizd thy parting Soul, and seald thee his;”
—Richard Crashaw (1613?1649)
“O, my offense is rank, it smells to heaven;
It hath the primal eldest curse upon t,
A brothers murder. Pray can I not,
Though inclination be as sharp as will;
My stronger guilt defeats my strong intent,
And like a man to double business bound
I stand in pause where I shall first begin,
And both neglect. What if this cursed hand
Were thicker than itself with brothers blood,
Is there not rain enough in the sweet heavens
To wash it white as snow?”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
