Strana 7 - All will be well and all will be well and all manner of things will be well, which showed how much she trusted in God to bring about that which was right.
Strana 49 - IN the bleak mid-winter Frosty wind made moan, Earth stood hard as iron, Water like a stone ; Snow had fallen, snow on snow, Snow on snow, In the bleak mid-winter Long ago. Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him Nor earth sustain ; Heaven and earth shall flee away When He comes to reign : In the bleak mid-winter A stable-place sufficed The Lord God Almighty Jesus Christ.

Strana 18 - There are rows of washing machines, rows of dryers, a woman supervising the room, and a blaring TV. People sit on plastic chairs reading or watching soap operas while their laundry washes and dries. I have a problem with sitting.
