Σελίδα 34 - I wish to shew that elegance is inferior to virtue, that the first object of laudable ambition is to obtain a character as a human being, regardless of the distinction of sex; and that secondary views should be brought to this simple touchstone.
Σελίδα 11 - Let thine heart retain my words ; keep my commandments and live : get wisdom, get understanding ; forget it not, neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee; love her, and she shall keep thee.
