Strona 124 - He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
Strona 137 - Canst thou not minister to a mind diseased ; Pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow ; Raze out the written troubles of the brain ; And, with some sweet, oblivious antidote, Cleanse the stuffed bosom of that perilous stuff, Which weighs upon the heart ? Doct.
Strona 133 - Look round the habitable world, how few Know their own good, or knowing it pursue.
Strona 8 - While sparkling cups delight our eyes, Be gay; and scorn the frowns of age. What cruel answer have I heard ! And yet, by heaven, I love thee still: Can aught be cruel from thy lip ? Yet say, how fell that bitter word From lips which streams of sweetness fill, Which...

Strona 118 - ... dreaded ordeal of asking her father's or her guardian's consent. It is the fashion in novels to depict all fathers on these occasions as stern, with adamantine hearts. In real everyday life they are to be met with here and there, and exist, we must suppose, on purpose to prove in those cases the truth of the old adage, that " the course of true love never does run smoothe.
Strona 126 - God had blessed above all others and man had cursed above all others, to breathe and live again ? This was the question which was proposed to the prophet on that day when the hand of the Lord was upon him and he was carried into the valley which was full of bones. The vision, clear as it is in itself, must not be read apart from the context of the prophecy. You should remember where Ezekiel was dwelling ; by what kind of people he was surrounded ; what was the condition of his own land ; what had...
