Thomas Tickell
I hear a voice you cannot hear,
Which says I must not stay;
I see a hand you cannot see,
Which beckons me away.
Tickell quotes
The sweetest garland to the sweetest maid.
Nor eer was to the bowers of bliss conveyed
A fairer spirit or more welcome shade.

Tickell Thomas quotes
There taught us how to live; and (oh, too high
The price for knowledge!) taught us how to die.
Tickell Thomas
Just men, by whom impartial laws were given;
And saints who taught and led the way to heaven.
