Strana 274 - To one who is once persuaded that Jesus Christ was sent by God to be a King, and a Saviour of those who do believe in him, all his commands become principles ; there needs no other proof for the truth of what ho says, but that he said it.

All her excellences stand in her so silently, as if they had stolen upon her without her knowledge. The lining of her apparel, which is herself, is far better than outsides of tissue; for though she be not arrayed in the spoil of the silkworm, she is decked in innocence, a far better wearing.
Strana 242 - She was a queen of noble Nature's crowning, A smile of her's was like an act of grace ; She had no winsome looks, no pretty frowning, Like daily beauties of the vulgar race : But if she smiled, a light was on her face, A clear, cool kindliness, a lunar beam Of peaceful radiance, silvering o'er the stream Of human thought with unabiding glory ; Not quite a waking truth, not quite a dream, A visitation, bright and transitory.
