עמוד 145 - All school-days' friendship, childhood innocence? We, Hermia, like two artificial gods, Have with our needles created both one flower, Both on one sampler, sitting on one cushion, Both warbling of one song, both in one key; As if our hands, our sides, voices, and minds, Had been incorporate. So we grew together, Like to a double cherry, seeming parted ; But yet...
עמוד 217 - Not there, not there, my child! "Eye hath not seen it, my gentle boy! Ear hath not heard its deep songs of joy ; Dreams cannot picture a world so fair — Sorrow and death may not enter there : Time doth not breathe on its fadeless bloom, For beyond the clouds, and beyond the tomb, — It is there, it is there, my child!
עמוד 223 - ... records, promises as sweet; A Creature not too bright or good For human nature's daily food; For transient sorrows, simple wiles, Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears, and smiles. And now I see with eye serene The very pulse of the machine; A Being breathing thoughtful breath, A Traveller between life and death; The reason firm, the temperate will, Endurance, foresight, strength, and skill; A perfect Woman, nobly planned, To warn, to comfort, and command; And yet a Spirit still, and bright With...
עמוד 133 - That quake at fall o' th' hammer, seeming to have A fellow-feeling with 't at every blow. What course shall I think on ? she frets me so *. [Exit. Enter LEANTIO. Lean. How near am I now to a happiness That earth exceeds not! not another like it: The treasures of the deep are not so precious, As are the conceal'd comforts of a man Lock'd up in woman's love. I scent the air Of blessings when I come but near the house: What a delicious breath marriage sends forth ! The violet-bed's not sweeter.
עמוד 206 - ... when her broken-hearted mother and myself went to her, she said, with a smile which nothing but death can ever make us forget, " You should not cry ; it is the Lord's will, you know, and I am only going to my little brothers." It was a hard trial, but " we mourn not like those who have no hope" — " we shall go to them, but they will not return to us.
עמוד 217 - I HEAR thee speak of the better land; Thou call'st its children a happy band; Mother ! oh, where is that radiant shore ?— Shall we not seek it, and weep no more ?— Is it where the flower of the orange blows, And the fire-flies dance through the myrtle boughs ? " —" Not there, not there, my child!
עמוד 115 - ... you to inscribe on it a sentence which should be read at the last day, and shown there as an index of your own thoughts and feelings? What care, what caution would you exercise in the selection ! Now, this is what God has done. He has placed before you immortal minds, more imperishable than the diamond on which you are about to inscribe, every day and every hour, by your instructions, by your spirit, or by your example, something which will remain, and be exhibited for or against you at the judgment...
עמוד 169 - Our clothes, and call them rich and new! When the poor sheep and silkworm wore That very clothing long before.
עמוד 115 - What if God should place in your hand a diamond, and tell you to inscribe on it a sentence which should be read at the last day, and shown there as an index of your own thoughts and feelings? What care, what caution would you exercise in the selection ! Now, this is what God has done. He has placed before you immortal minds...
עמוד 139 - ... of sickness — all these things compose a very considerable part of what the nuptial state was intended to afford us ; and without them, no charms of person or understanding will long continue to bestow delight. The arts of housewifery should be regarded as professional to the woman who intends to become a wife ; and to select one for that station who is destitute of them, or disinclined to exercise them, however otherwise accomplished, is as absurd as it would he to choose for your lawyer or...
