Grocott & Ward, comps. Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed. 189-?.


Eternity! thou pleasing, dreadful thought!
Through what variety of untried being,
Through what new scenes and changes must we pass?
The wide, th’ unbounded prospect lies before me,
But shadows, clouds, and darkness rest upon it,
Here will I hold.
Addison.—Cato, Act V. Scene 1.

Eternity, depending on an hour.
Dr. Young.—Night VIII. Line 1360.
