Σελίδα 29 - Though battle call me from thy arms Let not my pretty Susan mourn; Though cannons roar, yet safe from harms William shall to his Dear return. Love turns aside the balls that round me fly, Lest precious tears should drop from Susan's eye.
Σελίδα 38 - Thy body was a fetter That bound me to the flesh, Thank God that it is broken, And now I live afresh ! Now I can see thee clearly ; The dusky cloud of clay, That hid thy starry spirit, Is rent and blown away: To earth I give thy body, Thy spirit to the sky, I saw its bright wings growing, And knew that thou must fly. Now I can love thee truly, For nothing comes between The senses and the spirit, The seen and the unseen ; Lifts the eternal shadow, The silence bursts apart, And the soul's boundless...
Σελίδα 69 - I preach in the pulpit as much to myself as to my hearers ; and I come from church edified, if no one else does. If others do not receive consolation from my words, I find it myself. It is with the clergyman as with the physician. He knows the power of his medicines, but not always their effect upon the constitution of every patient.
Σελίδα 81 - Perhaps thou wilt be better there than with us in our poverty. Go, for thou goest without guilt. There is no disgrace in it for thee. We will both go to service, and our wages will procure thee everything needful.

Σελίδα 91 - He arose, brought a paper from another room, opened it and said, "You know this bond and your signature ? I give it to you and your children. " He tore the paper in two, and placed it in my hand. I could find no words, I was so deeply moved. My eyes filled. He saw that I would thank him, but could not, and he said, "Hush!
Σελίδα 82 - When things go hard with me, then am I most at my ease, always excepting the first shock, for then I please myself with the prospect of the relief which is sure to succeed, and I smile because nothing can disturb me. On the other hand, when everything goes according to my wishes, I am timid and anxious, and cannot give myself up freely to joy. I distrust the continuance of my peace. Those are the hardest misfortunes which we allow to take us by surprise. It is likewise true that trouble looks more...
Σελίδα 87 - When, excellent sir, I went from your door, I felt as if I were quitting a father's roof for the bleak world. I shall never forget you, never forget how happy I was with you. I see you now before me, in your rich poverty, in your Christian humility, in your patriarchal simplicity. And the lovely, fascinating Polly; and the — ah!
Σελίδα 67 - ... anything but cash. She was indeed very polite, and could not find words to express her love and respect for us. She advised us to go to Colswood and buy the little meat we want of him, as he is a richer man, and is able to wait for his money. I cared not to tell the good woman how that...
