Creative Quotations from . . .
James Thomson
(1834-1882) born on
Nov 23
Scottish poet, essayist. He was best known for "The City of Dreadful Night," about his despair of political affairs.
See, Winter comes to rule the varied year.

A pleasing land of drowsyhed it was,
Of dreams that wave before the half-shut eye;
And of gay castles in the clouds that pass,
Forever flushing round a summer sky . . .
Health is the vital principle of bliss,
And exercise, of health.
Once in a stately passion
I cried with desperate grief,
'O Lord, my heart is black with guile,
Of sinners I am chief.'"
I think a bishop who doesn't give offence to anyone is probably not a good bishop.
