עמוד 35 - For books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are ; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them.
עמוד 35 - And yet, on the other hand, unless wariness be used, as good almost kill a man as kill a good book : who kills a man kills a reasonable creature, God's image , but he who destroys a good book, kills reason itself, kills the image of God, as it were in the eye.
עמוד 42 - And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.
עמוד 37 - Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.
עמוד 11 - Sir Joshua Reynolds was, on very many accounts, one of the most memorable men of his time.

עמוד 278 - Now within the gate rejoice, Safe and seal'd and bought and blest ! Safe — from all the lures of vice, Seal'd — by signs the chosen know, Bought — by love and life the price, Blest — the mighty debt to owe. " Holy pilgrim ! what for thee, In a world like this remain ? From thy guarded breast shall flee, Fear and shame, and doubt and pain. Fear — the hope of Heaven shall fly, Shame — from glory's view retire, Doubt — in certain rapture die, Pain — in endless bliss expire.
