Strana 232 - Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.— The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. — She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. — She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.— She is like the merchants' ships ; she bringeth her food from afar.
Strana 232 - She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.
Strana 43 - I went by the field of the slothful, and by the vineyard of the man void of understanding; and, lo, it was all grown over with thorns, and nettles had covered the face thereof, and the stone wall thereof was broken down.
Strana 258 - Four acres was th' allotted space of ground, Fenc'd with a green enclosure all around. Tall thriving trees confess'd the fruitful mold; The red'ning apple ripens here to gold, Here the blue fig with luscious juice o'erflows, With deeper red the full pomegranate glows, The branch here bends beneath the weighty pear, And verdant olives flourish round the year. The balmy spirit of the western gale Eternal breathes on fruits untaught to fail...
Strana 233 - She looketh well to the ways of her household, And eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed ; Her husband also, and he praiseth her. Many daughters have done virtuously, But thou excellest them all.
Strana 80 - What choice to choose for delicacy best, What order so contrived as not to mix Tastes, not well joined, inelegant, but bring Taste after taste upheld with kindliest change...
Strana 50 - I began where most people end, with a full conviction of the emptiness of all sorts of ambition, and the unsatisfactory nature of all human pleasures. * When a smart fit of sickness tells me this scurvy tenement of my body will fall in a little time, I am even as unconcerned as was that honest Hibernian, who, being in bed in the great storm some years ago, and told the house would tumble over his head, made answer, " What care I for the house? I am only a lodger.
Strana 66 - A GOOD conscience is to the soul what health is to the body ; it preserves a constant ease and serenity within us, and more than countervails all the calamities and afflictions which can possibly befall us.
Strana 258 - This through the gardens leads its streams around, Visits each plant, and waters all the ground : While that in pipes beneath the palace flows, And thence its current on the town bestows; To various use their various streams they bring, The people one, and one supplies the king.
Strana 261 - The Tower of Babel, not yet finished. St. George in box : his arm scarce long enough, but will be in a condition to stick the dragon by next April.
