Strana 26 - Yet be it less or more, or soon or slow, It shall be still in strictest measure even To that same lot, however mean or high, Toward which Time leads me, and the will of Heaven ; All is, if I have grace to use it so, As ever in my great Task-Master's eye.
Strana 22 - It is enough to know that when we plant a tree we are doing what we can to make our planet a more wholesome and a happier dwelling place for those who come after us, if not for ourselves. As you drop the seed, as you plant the sapling, your left hand hardly knows what your right hand is doing. But nature knows, and in due time the Power that sees and works in secret will reward you openly.
Strana 3 - LORD, in me there lieth nought But to thy search revealed lies; For when I sit Thou markest it; No less thou notest when I rise; Yea, closest closet of my thought Hath open windows to thine eyes.

But the teacher may teach respect for law, very thoroughly, on the other "hand. In this matter a great change has been wrought in the methods of discipline in later...
Strana 23 - I have written many verses, but the best poems I have produced are the trees I planted on the hill-side which overlooks the broad meadows, scalloped and rounded at their edges by loops of the sinuous Housatonic.
Strana 138 - Certainly great persons had need to borrow other men's opinions to think themselves happy; for if they judge by their own feeling, they cannot find it: but if they think with themselves what other men think of them, and that other men would fain be as they are, then they are happy as it were by report, when, perhaps, they find the contrary within : for they are the first that find their own griefs, though they be the last that find their own faults.
Strana 23 - I planted on the hillside which overlooked the broad meadows, scalloped and rounded at their edges by loops of the sinuous Housatonic. Nature finds rhymes for them in the recurring measures of the seasons. Winter strips them of their ornaments, and gives them, as it were, in prose translation, and summer reclothes them in all the splendid phrases of their leafy language.
