Hannah More Quotes

My object is not to make fanatics, but to train up the lower classes in habits of industry and piety.''Hannah More (1745-1833), British writer, reformer, philanthropist. Letter, 1801, to the Bishop of Bath and Wells. The Letters of Hannah More (1925).
''Going to the opera, like getting drunk, is a sin that carries its own punishment with it.''Hannah More (1745-1833), British writer, reformer, philanthropist. Letter, 1775, to her sister. The Letters of Hannah More (1925).

Here And There
Here bliss is short, imperfect, insincere,
But total, absolute, and perfect there.
Here time's a moment, short our happiest state,
There infinite duration is our date.
Here Satan tempts, and troubles e'en the best,
In a weak sinful body here I dwell,
But there I drop this frail and sickly shell.
Here my best thoughts are stain'd with guilt and fear,
But love and pardon shall be perfect there.
