Shakespeare,

ENEMY.
He hath ever been God's enemy ;
Then, if you fight against God's enemy,
God will, in justice, ward you as His soldiers.

For I have seen our enemies' overthrow.

To make a second fall of cursed man?

Shew me the steep and thorny way to Heaven,
Whilst, like a puff'd and reckless libertine,
Himself the primrose-path of dalliance treads.

And in the essential vesture of creation,
Does bear all excellency.

Shakespeare;

EYE OF HEAVEN. All places that the eye of Heaven visits, · Are to a wise man, ports, and happy havens.

RICHARD II. i. 3.

KING John, ii. 1.

FAITH.
The latest breath, that gave the sound of words,
Was deep-sworn faith.

HENRY VIII. ii. 1.

FALSEHOOD.

Take heed;
Lest He, that is the supreme King of kings,
Confound your hidden falsehood.

Shakespeare,

FAULTS.

Our purposes God justly hath discover'd ;
And I repent my fault, more than my death.

HENRY V. ii. 2.

FEARS. Their sense, thus weak, lost with their fears, thus strong, Made senseless things begin to do them wrong.

FIRE.
Never till to-night, never till now,
Did I go through a tempest dropping fire.

FIRMAMENT.

The meteors fright the fixed stars of Heaven :
I see thy glory, like a shooting star,
Fall to the base earth from the firmament !

RICHARD II. ii. 4.

Look, how the floor of Heaven
Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold;
There's not the smallest orb which thou behold'st,
But in his motion like an angel sings,

ing to the young-ey'd cherubims : : Such harmony is in immortal souls.

MERCHANT OF VENICE, v. 1.
