עמוד 141 - Heaven doth with us as we with torches do, Not light them for themselves ; for if our virtues Did not go forth of us, 'twere all alike As if we had them not. Spirits are not finely touch'd But to fine issues, nor Nature never lends The smallest scruple of her excellence, But, like a thrifty goddess, she determines Herself the glory of a creditor, Both thanks and use.
עמוד 87 - Lives of great men all remind us We can make our lives sublime, And, departing, leave behind us, Footprints on the sands of time; Footprints, that perhaps another, Sailing o'er life's solemn main, A forlorn and shipwrecked brother, Seeing, shall take heart again.
עמוד 223 - ... truth, as the students were about equally divided upon every question of much importance, such as Liberty and Necessity, the Sleep of the soul, and all the articles of theological orthodoxy and heresy ; in consequence of which all these topics were the subject of continual discussion.

עמוד 83 - Ye stars are but the shining dust Of my divine abode, The pavement of those heavenly courts, Where I shall reign with God. 4 The Father of eternal light Shall there his beams display ; Nor shall one moment's darkness mix With that unvaried day.
עמוד 179 - LM ll/HILE on the verge of life I stand, * * And view the scene on either hand, My spirit struggles with its clay, And longs to wing its flight away. 2 Where Jesus dwells, my soul would be...
עמוד 35 - I have endeavoured to keep a good conscience, for a troubled one who can bear ? I have now sat in this court fifteen years, and I should know something: surely, if I had gone in a mill so long, dust would cleave unto my clothes!
עמוד 188 - He several times said to Mrs Doddridge, " I cannot express to you what a morning I have had : such delightful and transporting views of the heavenly world is my Father now indulging me with, as no words can express.
