Strana 172 - I have given suck, and know How tender 'tis to love the babe that milks me— I would, while it was smiling in my face, Have plucked my nipple from his boneless gums, And dashed the brains out, had I so sworn as you Have done to this.
Strana 287 - Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report ; if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things.
Strana 172 - What beast was it then, That made you break this enterprise to me ? When you durst do it, then you were a man ; And, to be more than what you were, you would Be so much more the man. Nor time, nor place, Did then adhere, and yet you would make both : They have made themselves, and that their fitness Does unmake you.
Strana 126 - Lord!' is, from everlasting to everlasting, answered with, ' Here, my child.' " ' Here, my child !

Behold, how the tears are like heaven's dew, the smiles like the sun's light, which call flowers into life ; and love, love is the blessed, the consecrated earth, from which all germs of goodness and joy spring gloriously forth. Behold, how even the body (for that too must be there) grows and flourishes in the harmonious order of home, and has fruits which are not like those of Paradise, — forbidden ! Life in a happy family...
Strana 127 - ... heart seeks truly exists, and will gladly impart itself to us. I believe that it constantly comes nearer and nearer to us, until it has removed all obstacles, and unites itself with us fully and intimately. I believe that our God is no niggardly giver, I believe that he will give us all, his fulness of life, — himself ; I believe, that, as eternal love, he will suffer for and with us, until he lives in us wholly.
Strana 219 - ... unkind. Were I only good ! My God! make me good ! " " Resignation ! O, who can fully embrace thy full and strengthening life ! Resignation, — that is, the perfect submission of one's self, and devotion to the will of God. Is it not, as it were, to put aside all men ? to deny ourselves somewhat, if we would gain any thing? (But for some to forsake their portion is hard.) Renunciation is the Law; devotion to God's will the Gospel.
Strana 99 - President's toilette one unlucky Thursday morning, I will not undertake to conjecture ; but it is certain, that an unhappy destiny pursued him the whole day, and that every member of the family was obliged to feel this more or less. Early in the morning it began to go wrong...
