Epigraph

I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will
remember thy wonders of old.
 
---PSALM Ixxvii. II.
 
L’Ecriture sainte n’est pas une science de l’esprit, mais du coeur.
 
---PASCAL.
 
---All is in his hand, whose praise I seek.
In vain the poet sings, and the world hears,
If he regard not, though divine the theme.
---------------His eye is on the heart;
His frown can disappoint the proudest strain,
His approbation &endash; prosper even mine.
 
---COWPER
