Stran 147 - A b ringer of new things; and vile it were For some three suns to store and hoard myself, And this gray spirit yearning in desire To follow knowledge like a sinking star, Beyond the utmost bound of human thought.
Stran 118 - I HEARD the bells on Christmas Day Their old familiar carols play, And wild and sweet The words repeat Of peace on earth, good-will to men ! And thought how, as the day had come, The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along The unbroken song Of peaceon earth, good- will to men...
Stran 422 - ... have proved that he did not fail to anticipate — the waylayings to which he was subjected. He must have foreseen, I reflected, the secret investigations of his premises. His frequent absences from home at night, which were hailed by the Prefect as certain aids to his success, I regarded only as ruses, to afford opportunity for thorough search to the police, and thus the sooner to impress them with the conviction to which G , in fact, did finally arrive — the conviction that the letter was...

To say to the painter, that Nature is to be taken as she is, is to say to the player, that he may sit on the piano.
Stran 171 - And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?
Stran 148 - Though much is taken, much abides; and though We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven — that which we are, we are: One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

For three months a night has not passed, during the greater part of which I have not been engaged, personally, in ransacking the D Hotel. My honor is interested, and, to mention a great secret, the reward is enormous.
Stran 422 - I considered, could not fail to be aware of the ordinary policial modes of action. He could not have failed to anticipate— and events have proved that he did not fail to anticipate— the waylayings to which he was subjected. He must have foreseen, I reflected, the secret investigations of his premises.
