      - Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca)

The soul has this proof of its divinity; that divine things delight it.
  [Lat., Animus hoc habet argumentum divinitatis suae, quod illum divina delectant.]

Banquo, thy soul's flight,
  If it find heaven, must find it out to-night.
      - William Shakespeare, Macbeth
         (Macbeth at III, i)

Within this wall of flesh
  There is a soul counts thee her creditor,
    And with advantage means to pay thy love;

        The Life and Death of King John
         (King John at III, iii)

Reason, you rogue, reason: thinkest thou, I'll endanger my soul gratis?

The soul has more diseases than the body.

Whatever of earth is form'd, to earth returns,
  * * * The soul
    Of man alone, that particle divine,
      Escapes the wreck of worlds, when all things fail.
      - William C. Somerville

Whate'er of earth is form'd, to earth returns,
  . . . The soul
    Or man alone, that particle divine,
      Escapes the wreck of worlds, when all things fail.
      - William C. Somerville, The Chase
         (bk. IV, l. 1)

The image of God was no less resplendent in man's practical understanding,--namely, that storehouse of the soul in which are treasured up the rules of action and the seeds of morality.
      - Bishop Robert South

We may compare the soul to a linen cloth; it must be first washed to take off its native hue and color, and to make it white; and afterwards it must be ever and anon washed to preserve it white.
      - Bishop Robert South

For of the soule the bodie forme doth take;
  For soule is forme and doth the bodie make.
      - Edmund Spenser,
        An Hymn in Honour of Beauty (l. 132)

The soul is a fire that darts its rays through all the senses; it is in this fire that existence consists; all the observations and all the efforts of philosophers ought to turn towards this Me, the centre and moving power of our sentiments and our ideas.
      - Madame de Stael (Baronne Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein),
        Germany (pt. III, ch. II)

I consider the soul of man as the ruin of a glorious pile of buildings; where, amidst great heaps of rubbish, you meet with noble fragments of sculpture, broken pillars and obelisks, and a magnificence in confusion.
      - Sir Richard Steele

I am positive I have a soul; nor can all the books with which materialists have pestered the world ever convince me to the contrary.
      - Laurence Sterne

After all, let a man take what pains he may to hush it down, a human soul is an awful, ghostly, unquiet possession for a bad man to have. Who knows the metes and bounds of it? Who knows all its awful perhapses,--those shudderings and tremblings, which it can no more live down than it can outlive its own eternity?
      - Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe

My soul is a dark ploughed field
  In the cold rain;
    My soul is a broken field
      Ploughed by pain.
      - Sara Teasdale (Mrs. E.B. Filsinger),
        The Broken Field

But this main-miracle that thou art thou,
  With power on thine own act and on the world.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, De Profundis
         (last lines)

. . . but while
  I breathe Heaven's air, and Heaven looks down on me,
    And smiles at my best meanings, I remain
      Mistress of mine own self and mine own soul.
      - Lord Alfred Tennyson, The Foresters
         (act IV, sc. 1)
