Σελίδα 34 - The pure streams, the placid lakes, the green hills, and the " fixed mountains looking tranquillity," seemed to reproach him with his desertion of nature's fairer work ; for all the works of nature are linked together by an invisible, " electric chain." Redwood hurried from place to place ; he tried the power of novelty, of activity ; he gazed on those objects that have been the marvel and the delight of the world ; and -when the first excitement was over, he felt that he could not resist the great...

In the silence of the closet, and the dryness of discussion, I can agree with the atheist or the materialist, as to the insolubility of certain questions. But when in the country...
Σελίδα 52 - ... affections, of disciplined serenity, and a soft melancholy, that seemed like the shadow of past sufferings, which altogether constituted the power and interest of her remarkable face. The younger female was short and slightly formed. Her features were small ; her blue eyes, light hair, and fair complexion, would have rendered her face insipid, but that it was rescued by an expression of purity and innocence, and a certain appealing tender look, that suited well her quiet and amiable character.
Σελίδα 111 - Ellen to pass half her time at the mansion-house. In this arrangement there was a system of checks and balances that produced that singular and felicitous union of diversity of qualities which constituted the rare perfection of Ellen's character. Mrs. Harrison communicated her taste and skill in drawing, her knowledge of french and Italian, and all those arts of female handicraft that were the fashion of her day.
Σελίδα 23 - ... but why should the man of sensibility repine at not being able to demonstrate what he feels to be true? In the silence of the closet, and the dryness of discussion, I can agree with the atheist or the materialist, as to the insolubility of certain questions. But when in the country, and contemplating nature, my soul, full of emotion, soars aloft to the vivifying principle that animates them, to the almighty intellect that pervades them, and the goodness that makes the scene so delightful to my...
