Some men have a Sunday soul, which they screw on in due time, and take off again every Monday morning.
      - Robert Hall

A man's possessions are just as large as his own soul. If his title-deeds cover more, the surplus acres own him, not he the acres.
      - R.F. Hallock

Our souls must become expanded by the contemplation of Nature's grandeur, before we can fully comprehend the greatness of man.
      - Heinrich Heine

The soul, the mother of deep fears,
  Of high hopes infinite,
    Of glorious dreams, mysterious tears,
      Of sleepless inner sight;
        Lovely, but solemn, it arose,
          Unfolding what no more might close.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

We endow
  Those whom we love, in our fond, passionate blindness,
    With power upon our souls too absolute
      To be a mortal's trust.
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans

It matters not how strait the gate,
  How charged with punishments the scroll,
    I am the master of my fate:
      I am the captain of my soul.
      - William Ernest Henley, Echoes
         (IV, To R.J.H.B.)

A blow to the head will confuse a man's thinking, a blow to the foot has no such effect, this cannot be the result of an immaterial soul.
      - Heraclitus of Ephesus

Salute thyself; see what thy soul doth wear.
      - George Herbert, Church Porch

The soul has, living apart from its corporeal envelope, a profound habitual meditation which prepares it for a future life.
      - Theodore Gottlieb von Hippel

Life was intended to be so adjusted that the body should be the servant of the soul, and always subordinate to the soul.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

The faculties of our souls differ as widely as the features of our faces and the forms of our frames.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

The soul, like the body, lives by what it feeds on.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

There are no twin souls in God's universe.
      - Josiah Gilbert Holland (used pseudonym Timothy Titcomb)

Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,
  As the swift seasons roll!
    Leave thy low-vaulted past!
      Let each new temple, nobler than the last,
        Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,
          Till thou at length art free,
            Leaving thine outgrown shell by life's unresting sea!
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.,
        The Chambered Nautilus (st. 5)

And rest at last where souls unbodied dwell,
  In ever-flowing meads of Asphodel.
      - Homer ("Smyrns of Chios"), The Odyssey
         (bk. XXIV, l. 19), (Pope's translation)

What is mind? No matter. What is matter? Never mind. What is the soul? It is immaterial.
      - Thomas Hood

You can throw yourselves away. You can become of no use in the universe except for a warning. You can lose your souls. Oh, what a loss is that! The perversion and degradation of every high and immortal power for an eternity! And shall this be true of any one of you? Will you be lost when One has come from heaven, traveling in the greatness of His strength, and with garments dyed in blood, on purpose to guide you home--home to a Father's house--to an eternal home?
      - Mark Hopkins

The production of souls is the secret of unfathomable depth.
      - Victor Hugo, Shakespeare (bk. V, ch. 1)

The soul is dyed by the color of its leisure hours.
      - William Ralph Inge

Nothing gives us a greater idea of our soul, than that God has given us, at the moment of our birth, an angel to take care of it.
      - Saint Jerome (Eusebius Hieronymus Sophronius, called Hieronymus)

The saddest of all failures is that of a soul, with its capabilities and possibilities, failing of life everlasting, and entering upon that night of death upon which morning never dawns.
      - Herrick Johnson

The limbs will quiver and move after the soul is gone.
      - Samuel Johnson (a/k/a Dr. Johnson) ("The Great Cham of Literature"),
        see Northcote's "Johnsoniana", 487

Death only this mysterious truth unfolds,
  The mighty soul, how small a body holds.
      - Juvenal (Decimus Junius Juvenal)

Awake, my soul, and with the sun
  The daily course of duty run.
      - Bishop Thomas Ken (Kenn), Evening Hymn,
        taken from "Salvator Mundi, Domine" in "Hymni Ecclesioe"

Arise, O soul, and gird them up anew,
  Though the black camel Death kneel at thy gate;
    No beggar thou that thou for alms shouldst sue:
      Be the proud captain still of thine own fate.
      - James Benjamin Kenyon
