Strana 47 - Lady-bug, lady-bug, fly away home; Your house is on fire, your children will burn.
Strana 96 - And more, my son! for more than once when I Sat all alone, revolving in myself The word that is the symbol of myself, The mortal limit of the Self was loosed, And past into the Nameless, as a cloud Melts into Heaven. I touch'd my limbs, the limbs Were strange not mine — and yet no shade of doubt, But utter clearness, and thro...
Strana 97 - This has generally come through repeating my own name two or three times to myself silently till all at once, as it were out of the intensity of the consciousness of individuality, the individuality itself seemed to dissolve and fade away into boundless being; and this, not a confused state, but the clearest of the clearest, the surest of the surest, the weirdest of the weirdest, utterly beyond words, where death was almost a laughable impossibility — the loss of personality, if so it were, seeming...
Strana 97 - I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
Strana 98 - ... the clearest, the surest of the surest, utterly beyond words — where death was an almost laughable impossibility — the loss of personality (if so it were) seeming no extinction but the only true life.

There was a delightful door cut in the side, and it was roofed in, and there were little windows in it ; but the wonderful charm of it was, that it was a real boat which had no doubt been upon the water hundreds of times, and which had never been intended to be lived in, on dry land.
Strana 97 - waking trance ' (this for lack of a better word) I have frequently had quite up from boyhood when I have been all alone. This has often come upon me through repeating my own name to myself silently, till all at once as it were out of the intensity of the consciousness of individuality the individuality itself seemed to dissolve and fade away into boundless being — and this not a confused state but the clearest of the clearest, the surest of the surest, utterly beyond words — where death was...
Strana 77 - Choose another with all your heart. Down on this carpet you must kneel, Sure as the grass grows in the field. Salute your bride and kiss her sweet. Now you may rise upon your feet.
Strana 77 - Go choose your east, go choose your west, Go choose the one that you love best; And if she will not take your part, Go choose another with all your heart.
Strana 157 - What would you do if you were cast on a desert island, and had n't any rubber ? " This made the child seriously consider.
