James Graham

1612 - 1650

A Quote by James Graham, Marquis of Montrose on atoms, confidence, execution, and justice

Lines Written on the Window of his Jail the Night before his Execution. Let them bestow on every airth a limb; Then open all my veins, that I may swim To thee, my Maker! in that crimson lake; Then place my parboiled head upon a stake- Scatter my ashes-strew them in the air;- Lord! since thou know'st where all these atoms are, I'm hopeful thou'lt recover once my dust, And confident thou'lt raise me with the just.

He either fears his fate too much, Or his deserts are small, That dares not put it to the touch To gain or lose it all.
