Stran 278 - And yet it never was in my soul To play so ill a part : But evil is wrought by want of Thought, As well as want of Heart...
Stran 446 - For the living know that they shall die : but the dead know not anything, neither have they any more a reward ; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished ; neither have they any more a portion for ever in anything that is done under the sun.
Stran 423 - With a wild mistress, a staunch friend or two, And a light heart still breaking into song : Making a mock of life, and all its cares, Rich in the glory of my rising sun, Lightly I vaulted up four pair of stairs, In the brave days when I was twenty-one.

Stran 330 - J'ai beau voir ses défauts, et j'ai beau l'en blâmer, En dépit qu'on en ait, elle se fait aimer; Sa grâce est la plus forte, et sans doute ma flamme De ces vices du temps pourra purger son âme.
Stran 25 - Jog on, jog on, the foot-path way, And merrily hent the stile-a; A merry heart goes all the day, Your sad tires in a mile-a.
Stran 115 - And at some of the hours of the day apply thy mind to the study of the Holy Scriptures ; first in Greek, the New Testament, with the Epistles of the Apostles ; and then the Old Testament, in Hebrew. In brief let me see thee an abyss and bottomless pit of knowledge...
