Joseph Addison Quotes

It must be so---Plato, thou reason'st well! - Else whence this pleasing hope, this fond desire, This longing after immortality? Or whence this secret dread, and inward horror, Of falling into naught ? Why shrinks the soul Back on herself, and startles at destruction ‘Tis the divinity that stirs within us; ‘Tis heaven itself, that points out an hereafter, And intimates eternity to man. Eternity! thou pleasing, dreadful thought !
