Էջ 77 - Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
Էջ 72 - And when his disciples, James and John, saw this, they said ; Lord, wilt thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did ? But he turned and rebuked them, and said ; Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.
Էջ 47 - Has any seen The mighty chain of beings, lessening down From Infinite Perfection to the brink Of dreary nothing, desolate abyss ! From which astonished thought, recoiling, turns?
Էջ 109 - God hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell upon all the face of the earth.
Էջ 77 - Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor and hate thine enemy : But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you...
Էջ 85 - THE material universe there is one grand loyal law, upon which hang all the laws that govern matter or motion. That law, the union and source of all the laws known to the physical world, is the law of Gravitation. In its object, operation, and effect, it is to the material world just what the royal law of love is to the moral. To every atom of matter in the universe it is the command, and the command obeyed: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy soul, mind, and strength, and thy neighbor...
Էջ 22 - No ! not he. He could show his credentials at a moment's notice, with proud defiance. He always carried in his pocket a written absolution for all he had done, and could do, in his work of destruction. He had bought a letter of indulgence. I mean a license ! a precious instrument, signed and sealed by an authority stronger and more respectable than the Pope's.
Էջ 48 - It is an old saying, and one of fearful and fathomless import, that we are forming characters for eternity. Forming characters ! Whose ? Our own or others ? Both — and in that momentous fact lies the peril and responsibility of our existence. 'Who is sufficient for the thought ? Thousands of my fellow-beings will yearly enter eternity with characters differing from those they would have carried thither had I never lived.
Էջ 86 - All the beings that peopled those decomposed worlds, would float promiscuous and dismembered over the black surges of the boundless chaos ; and not a throb of life nor a ray of light would beat or shine amid the ruins of the universe. Does any one doubt for a moment that all this, and more than we can conceive of ruin, would be the instantaneous consequence of destroying the great law of gravitation ? But what is all this ? what to God and his moral universe is all this dire disaster...
Էջ 21 - ! That my husband ! With what torpedo chill have you touched the sinews of that manly arm ? That my husband ! What have you done to that once noble brow, which he wore high among his fellows, as if it bore the superscription of the Godhead? That my husband ! What have you done to that eye with which he was wont to 'look erect on heaven,' and see in his mirror the image of his God.
