Stran 327 - Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, And my servant whom I have chosen: That ye may know and believe me, And understand that I am he: Before me there was no God formed, Neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; And beside me there is no saviour.
Stran 376 - But in the East, from the oldest times, an immiscible character has been kept up; foreigners are not admitted into the general body and mass of the society of the nation; they continue strangers and sojourners as all their fathers were - Doris amara suam non intermiscuit undam...
Stran 279 - ... tender-hearted Doctor himself, with a lighted candle in his hand and a smile upon his countenance, which was still partially red, from the effects of my petulance. I sulked and sobbed, and he fondled and soothed, till I began VOL.

Stran 14 - Phillips, and a better fellow in his way breathes not. There was , who asserted some incredible matter of fact as a likely paradox, and settled all controversies by an ipse dixit, a. fiat of his will, hammering out many a hard theory on the anvil of his...
Stran 391 - How musical is the alliteration ! but it is music which, like that of the singing brook, has sprung up of itself. Now, Mrs. Hemiins has the most perfect skill in her science; nothing can be more polished than her versification. Every poem is like a piece of music, with its eloquent pauses, its rich combinations, and its swelling chords.
Stran 222 - I subscribed to a circulating library at Brompton, the greatest part of the books in which I read more than once over.
