Strona 125 - But he refused, and said unto his master's wife, Behold, my master wotteth not what is with me in the house, and he hath committed all that he hath to my hand; there is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife : how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God...
Strona 197 - There is a delicacy of taste observable in some men which very much resembles this delicacy of passion, and produces the same sensibility to beauty and deformity of every kind, as that does to prosperity and adversity, obligations and injuries.
Strona 160 - The necessities of our condition require a thousand offices of tenderness, which mere regard for the species will never dictate.
Strona 189 - Almost every other crime is practised by the help of some quality which might have produced esteem or love, if it had been well employed; but envy- is mere unmixed and genuine evil; it pursues a hateful end by despicable means, and desires not so much its own happiness as another's misery.
Strona 159 - ... and to charm, every man may hope by rules and caution not to give pain, and may, therefore, by the help of goodbreeding, enjoy the kindness of mankind, though he should have no claim to higher distinction.
Strona 161 - Gaiety is to good-humour as animal perfumes to vegetable fragrance ; the one overpowers weak spirits, and the other recreates and revives them. Gaiety seldom fails to give some pain; the hearers either strain their faculties to accompany its towerings, or are left behind in envy and despair. Good-humour boasts no faculties which every one does not believe in his own power, and pleases principally by not offending.
Strona 160 - To love all men is our duty, so far as it includes a general habit of benevolence, and readiness of occasional kindness; but to love all equally is impossible; at least impossible without the extinction of those passions which now produce all our pains and all our pleasures; without the disuse, if not the abolition, of some of ovir faculties, and the suppression of all our hopes and fears in apathy and indifference.
Strona 125 - ... made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field. 6 And he left all that he had in Joseph's hand; and he knew not aught he had, save the bread which he did eat.
Strona 187 - Envy is almost the only vice which is practicable at all times, and in every place; the only passion which can never lie quiet for want of irritation : its effects therefore are every where discoverable, and its attempts always to be dreaded.
Strona 172 - As nature has given man the superiority above woman, by endowing him with greater strength both of mind and body, it is his part to alleviate that superiority, as much as possible, by the generosity of his behaviour, and by a studied deference and complaisance for all her inclinations and opinions.
