masque quotes

Say, what abridgement have you for this evening?
What masque, what music? How shall we beguile
Shake off your heavy trance,
and leap into a dance,
be a while our guests:
For stars, gaze on our eyes.
Inspire the Vocal Brass, Inspire;
The World is past its Infant Age:
Calms appear, when Storms are past;
Love will have his Hour at last:
Live and let live, believe and let believe.
'Twas said the lesser gods were only traits
That only needs a finger touch from God
To spring it like a deadfall and the fault
Nothing can make injustice just but mercy.
You don't know Paul: he's in the Bible too.
He is the fellow who theologized
Christ almost out of Christianity.
You can't trust God to be unmerciful.
There you have the beginning of all wisdom.
