Part 2. Rumi Quotes That Are…
While only a few players still kneel before their games, others put their fists in the air during the "Star Spangled Banner," while many can be seen on the sidelines arm-in-arm, rather than placing their hands on their hearts. Elisa Camara was in attendance at the dedication ceremony for Florida's newest monument honoring Gold Star family members like herself, who have lost a loved one in service. One such structure is in the works in Elisa's hometown of Orlando.

There in captivitie he lets them dwell The space of seventie years, then brings them back, [ ] Remembring mercie , and his Cov'nant sworn To David , stablisht as the dayes of Heav'n. Returnd from Babylon by leave of Kings Thir Lords, whom God dispos'd , the house of God They first re- edifie , and for a while [ ] In mean estate live moderate, till grown In wealth and multitude, factious they grow; But first among the Priests dissension springs, Men who attend the Altar, and should most Endeavour Peace: thir strife pollution brings [ ] Upon the Temple it self: at last they seise The Scepter, and regard not Davids Sons, Then loose it to a stranger , that the true Anointed King Messiah might be born Barr'd of his right; yet at his Birth a Starr [ ] Unseen before in Heav'n proclaims him com , And guides the Eastern Sages , who enquire His place, to offer Incense, Myrrh, and Gold; His place of birth a solemn Angel tells To simple Shepherds, keeping watch by night; [ ] They gladly thither haste, and by a Quire Of squadrond Angels hear his Carol sung.
He ceas'd , discerning Adam with such joy Surcharg'd , as had like grief bin dew'd in tears, Without the vent of words, which these he breathd. O Prophet of glad tidings, finisher [ ] Of utmost hope! Needs must the Serpent now his capital bruise Expect with mortal paine : say where and when Thir fight, what stroke shall bruise the Victors heel [ ]. Dream not of thir fight, As of a Duel, or the local wounds Of head or heel: not therefore joynes the Son Manhood to God-head, with more strength to foil Thy enemie ; nor so is overcome [ ] Satan , whose fall from Heav'n , a deadlier bruise, Disabl'd not to give thee thy deaths wound: Which hee , who comes thy Saviour , shall recure, Not by destroying Satan , but his works In thee and in thy Seed: nor can this be, [ ] But by fulfilling that which thou didst want, Obedience to the Law of God, impos'd On penaltie of death, and suffering death, The penaltie to thy transgression due, And due to theirs which out of thine will grow: [ ] So onely can high Justice rest appaid.
The Law of God exact he shall fulfill Both by obedience and by love , though love Alone fulfill the Law; thy punishment He shall endure by coming in the Flesh [ ] To a reproachful life and cursed death, Proclaiming Life to all who shall believe In his redemption, and that his obedience Imputed becomes theirs by Faith, his merits To save them, not thir own, though legal works.
So spake th' Archangel Michael , then paus'd , As at the Worlds great period; and our Sire Replete with joy and wonder thus repli'd. O goodness infinite, goodness immense!
That all this good of evil shall produce, [ ] And evil turn to good; more wonderful Then that which by creation first brought forth Light out of darkness! But say, if our deliverer up to Heav'n Must reascend, what will betide the few [ ] His faithful, left among th' unfaithful herd, The enemies of truth; who then shall guide His people, who defend? Be sure they will, said th' Angel; but from Heav'n [ ] Hee to his own a Comforter will send, The promise of the Father, who shall dwell His Spirit within them, and the Law of Faith Working through love, upon thir hearts shall write, To guide them in all truth, and also arme [ ] With spiritual Armour , able to resist Satans assaults, and quench his fierie darts, What Man can do against them, not affraid , Though to the death, against such cruelties With inward consolations recompenc't , [ ] And oft supported so as shall amaze Thir proudest persecuters: for the Spirit Powrd first on his Apostles, whom he sends To evangelize the Nations, then on all Baptiz'd , shall them with wondrous gifts endue [ ] To speak all Tongues, and do all Miracles, As did thir Lord before them.
Thus they win Great numbers of each Nation to receave With joy the tidings brought from Heav'n : at length Thir Ministry perform'd , and race well run , [ ] Thir doctrine and thir story written left, They die; but in thir room, as they forewarne , Wolves shall succeed for teachers, grievous Wolves , Who all the sacred mysteries of Heav'n To thir own vile advantages shall turne [ ] Of lucre and ambition, and the truth With superstitions and traditions taint, Left onely in those written Records pure, Though not but by the Spirit understood.
Then shall they seek to avail themselves of names, [ ] Places and titles, and with these to joine Secular power, though feigning still to act By spiritual, to themselves appropriating The Spirit of God, promisd alike and giv'n To all Beleevers ; and from that pretense, [ ] Spiritual Lawes by carnal power shall force On every conscience; Laws which none shall finde Left them inrould , or what the Spirit within Shall on the heart engrave. He ended; and thus Adam last reply'd. How soon hath thy prediction, Seer blest , Measur'd this transient World, the Race of time, Till time stand fixt : beyond is all abyss, [ ] Eternitie , whose end no eye can reach.
Greatly instructed I shall hence depart. Greatly in peace of thought, and have my fill Of knowledge, what this Vessel can containe ; Beyond which was my folly to aspire. To whom thus also th' Angel last repli'd : This having learnt , thou hast attained the summe [ ] Of wisdom; hope no higher, though all the Starrs Thou knewst by name, and all th' ethereal Powers, All secrets of the deep, all Natures works, Or works of God in Heav'n , Aire , Earth, or Sea, And all the riches of this World enjoydst , [ ] And all the rule, one Empire; onely add Deeds to thy knowledge answerable, add Faith , Add vertue , Patience, Temperance, add Love, By name to come call'd Charitie , the soul Of all the rest: then wilt thou not be loath [ ] To leave this Paradise, but shalt possess A Paradise within thee, happier farr.
The Subtle Knife
Let us descend now therefore from this top Of Speculation; for the hour precise Exacts our parting hence; and see the Guards, [ ] By mee encampt on yonder Hill, expect Thir motion, at whose Front a flaming Sword, In signal of remove, waves fiercely round; We may no longer stay: go, waken Eve ; Her also I with gentle Dreams have calm'd [ ] Portending good, and all her spirits compos'd To meek submission: thou at season fit Let her with thee partake what thou hast heard, Chiefly what may concern her Faith to know, The great deliverance by her Seed to come [ ] For by the Womans Seed on all Mankind.
That ye may live, which will be many dayes , Both in one Faith unanimous though sad, With cause for evils past, yet much more cheer'd With meditation on the happie end.
He ended, and they both descend the Hill; Descended, Adam to the Bowre where Eve Lay sleeping ran before, but found her wak't ; And thus with words not sad she him receav'd. Whence thou returnst , and whither wentst , I know; [ ] For God is also in sleep, and Dreams advise, Which he hath sent propitious, some great good Presaging, since with sorrow and hearts distress Wearied I fell asleep: but now lead on; In mee is no delay; with thee to goe , [ ] Is to stay here; without thee here to stay, Is to go hence unwilling; thou to mee Art all things under Heav'n , all places thou, Who for my wilful crime art banisht hence.
Is walking 8 miles a day too much
This further consolation yet secure [ ] I carry hence; though all by mee is lost, Such favour I unworthie am voutsaft , By mee the Promis'd Seed shall all restore. So spake our Mother Eve , and Adam heard Well pleas'd , but answer'd not; for now too nigh [ ] Th' Archangel stood, and from the other Hill To thir fixt Station, all in bright array The Cherubim descended; on the ground Gliding meteorous, as Ev'ning Mist Ris'n from a River o're the marish glides, [ ] And gathers ground fast at the Labourers heel Homeward returning.
High in Front advanc't , The brandisht Sword of God before them blaz'd Fierce as a Comet; which with torrid heat, And vapour as the Libyan Air adust , [ ] Began to parch that temperate Clime; whereat In either hand the hastning Angel caught Our lingring Parents, and to th' Eastern Gate Led them direct, and down the Cliff as fast To the subjected Plaine ; then disappeer'd. Samson Agonistes.
