In your patience possess ye your souls.
      - Bible, Luke (ch. XXI, v. 19)

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
      - Bible, Matthew (ch. XVI, v. 26)

The iron entered into his soul.
      - Bible, in the "Psalter", Psalms

John Brown's body lies a mould'ring in the grave,
  His soul goes marching on.
      - Thomas Brigham Bishop, John Brown's Body

Whatever our souls are made of yours and mine are the same.
      - Emily Jane Bronte (used pseudonym Ellis Bell)

Go and try to save a soul, and you will see how well it is worth saving, how capable it is of the most complete salvation. Not by pondering about it, nor by talking of it, but by saving it, you learn its preciousness.
      - Phillips Brooks

To whatever world He carries our souls when they shall pass out of these imprisoning bodies, in those worlds these souls of ours shall find themselves part of the same great temple; for it belongs not to this earth alone.
      - Phillips Brooks

Souls are dangerous things to carry straight through all the spilt saltpetre of this world.
      - Elizabeth Barrett Browning

'Tis an awkward thing to play with souls,
  And matter enough to save one's own.
      - Robert Browning

Wander at will,
  Day after day,--
    Wander away,
      Wandering still--
        Soul that canst soar!
          Body may slumber:
            Body shall cumber
              Soul-flight no more.
      - Robert Browning

And I have written three books on the soul,
  Proving absurd all written hitherto,
    And putting us to ignorance again.
      - Robert Browning, Cleon

It seems to me as if not only the form, but the soul of man was made to "walk erect, and look upon the stars."
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Not in the knowledge of things without, but in the perfection of the soul within, lies the empire of man aspiring to be more than man.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

O, how much greater is the soul of one man than the vicissitudes of the whole globe! Child of heaven, and heir of immortality, how from some star hereafter wilt thou look back on the ant-hill and its commotions, from Clovis to Robespierre, from Noah to the Final Fire!
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

And he that makes his soul his surety,
  I think, does give the best security.
      - Samuel Butler (1), Hudibras

The dome of Thought, the palace of the Soul.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Childe Harold (canto II, st. 6)

Soul is the man.
      - Thomas Campion

Alas! while the body stands so broad and brawny, must the soul lie blinded, dwarfed, stupefied, almost annihilated? Alas! this was, too, a breath of God, bestowed in heaven, but on earth never to be unfolded!
      - Thomas Carlyle

Everywhere the human soul stands between a hemisphere of light and another of darkness; on the confines of two everlasting hostile empires, Necessity and Freewill.
      - Thomas Carlyle, Essays--Goethe's Works

This is my firm persuasion, that since the human soul exerts itself with so great activity, since it has such a remembrance of the best, such a concern for the future, since it is enriched with so many arts, sciences, and discoveries, it is impossible but the being which contains all these must be immortal.
      - Cato (Marcus Porcius Cato "The Elder") (a/k/a Cato the Censor)

Every thing here, but the soul of man, is a passing shadow. The only enduring substance is within. When shall we awake to the sublime greatness, the perils, the accountableness, and the glorious destinies of the immortal soul?
      - William Ellery Channing

The strongest love which the human heart has ever felt has been that for its Heavenly Parent. Was it not then constituted for this love?
      - William Ellery Channing

This boundless desire had not its original from man itself; nothing would render itself restless; something above the bounds of this world implanted those desires after a higher good, and made him restless in everything else. And since the soul can only rest is something infinite, there is something infinite for it to rest in.
      - Stephen Charnock

The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears.
      - John Vance Cheney
