עמוד 92 - I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be for ever: nothing can be put to it, nor any thing taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him.
עמוד 93 - He hath made every thing beautiful in his time : also he hath set the world in their heart; so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
עמוד 155 - The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits. All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
עמוד 155 - ... or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was : and the spirit shall return unto GOD Who gave it.
עמוד 93 - And further, by these, my son, be admonished : of making many books there is no end ; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
עמוד 92 - I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.
עמוד 209 - For, while she makes her silkworms beds With all the tender things I swear ; Whilst all the house my passion reads, In papers round her baby's hair...
עמוד 92 - And he spake three thousand proverbs: and his songs were a thousand and five. And he spake of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springeth out of the wall: he epake also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes.
עמוד 73 - Observe the various operations Of food and drink in several nations. Was ever Tartar fierce or cruel Upon the strength of water-gruel ? But who shall stand his rage and force, If first he rides, then eats his horse ? Salads, and eggs, and lighter fare, Tune the Italian spark's guitar. And, if I take Dan Congreve right, Pudding and beef make Britons fight.
עמוד 24 - Then constant Faith and holy Hope shall die, One lost in certainty, and one in joy. Whilst thou, more happy power, fair Charity ! Triumphant sister, greatest of the three, Thy office and thy nature still the same, Lasting thy lamp; and unconsumed thy flame, Shalt still survive— Shalt stand before the host of heaven confest, For ever blessing, and for ever blest.
