Review: Sesame and Lilies

Κριτική χρηστών  - Haythem Bastawy - Goodreads

Σελίδα 13 - Now books of this kind have been written in all ages by their greatest men : — by great readers, great statesmen, and great thinkers. These are all at your choice ; and Life is short.

Σελίδα 159 - She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff; she stretcheth out her hand to the poor.
Σελίδα 158 - She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.
Σελίδα 120 - For a breeze of morning moves, And the planet of Love is on high, Beginning to faint in the light that she loves On a bed of daffodil sky, To faint in the light of the sun she loves, To faint in his light, and to die. All...
