Strana 87 - tis better to be lowly born, And range with humble livers in content, Than to be perk'd up in a glistering grief, And wear a golden sorrow.
Strana 115 - If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, fulfil ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind...
Strana 39 - Duval wore one of those fanciful children's dresses which are expensive as well as in good taste ; his coat was skillfully fitted to his figure, his trousers came down in plaits from his waist to his boots of polished leather with mother-of-pearl buttons, and his ringlets were half hid by a velvet cap. The appearance of his guide, on the contrary, was that of the class who dwell on the extreme borders...
Strana 40 - The countenances of the two children were not less different than their dresses. That of the first was delicate and refined; his clear blue eye, his fair skin, and his smiling mouth, gave him a charming look of innocence and happiness ; the features of the other, on the contrary, had...
Strana 38 - Duval — there are twelve hundred Duvals in Paris." " Then he does not know in what part of the town he lives?" I should think not, indeed ! Don't you see that he is a gentleman's child ? He has never gone out except in a carriage, or with a servant ; he does not know what to do by himself." Here the mason was interrupted by some of the voices rising above the others. " We cannot leave him in the street,

He answered my questions by monosyllables, and like a man who wishes to avoid conversation. From whence is this dejection, when one would think he had all he could wish for ? I should like to know ! Ten o'clock. — Michael is just gone down-stairs to look for a tool he has forgotten.
Strana 41 - I recognized them at first sight; they were the child who was found near the parapet of the Louvre, and his young guide. But the dress of the latter was greatly changed: his blouse of gray cloth was neat, and even spruce, and was fastened round the waist by a polished leather belt; he wore strong shoes, but made for his feet, and had on a new cloth cap.
Strana 31 - Stay here forever with thy charming sisters, Pity, Patience, Sobriety, and Solitude ; be ye my queens and my instructors ; teach me the stern duties of life ; remove far from my abode the weakness of heart, and giddiness of head, which follow prosperity. Holy Poverty ! teach me to endure without complaining, to impart without grudging, to seek the end of life higher than in pleasure, farther off than in power. Thou givest the body strength, thou makest the mind more firm ; and, thanks to thee, this...
Strana 110 - ? But if virtue is only a word, what is there, then, in life which is true and real ? No, I will not believe that goodness is in vain. It does not always give the happiness we had hoped for, but it brings some other. In the world...
Strana 110 - We always consider life as a fairy tale, in which every good action must be rewarded by a visible wonder. We do not accept as payment a peaceful conscience, self-content, or a good name among men — treasures that are more precious than any other, but the value of which we do not feel till after we have lost them !
