Էջ 116 - There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep Sea, and music in its roar: I love not Man the less, but Nature more...
Էջ 296 - Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; every man's work shall be made manifest; for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
Էջ 50 - Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O Lord of hosts, my King, and my God.
Էջ 34 - SCOTLAND! much I love thy tranquil dales ; But most on Sabbath eve, when low the sun Slants through the upland copse, 'tis my delight, Wandering, and stopping oft, to hear the song Of kindred praise arise from humble roofs...
Էջ 295 - It would make a mere coxcomb of him to suppose he can be pleased with such adulation, or that he desires such homage. We worship no such God. Second commandment.

Էջ 341 - And Abraham stood up from before his dead, and spake unto the sons of Heth, saying, I am a stranger and a sojourner with you : give me a possession of a burying place with you that I may bury my dead out of my sight.
Էջ 26 - For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
