עמוד 77 - how differently young and old are affected by the words of some classic author, such as Homer or Horace. Passages, which to a boy are but rhetorical commonplaces, neither better nor worse than a hundred others which any clever writer might supply, which he gets by heart and thinks very fine, and imitates, as he thinks, successfully, in his own flowing versification...
עמוד 152 - O, that a man might know The end of this day's business, ere it come ! But it sufficeth, that the day will end, And then the end is known.
עמוד 308 - He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity : he that killeth with the sword, must be killed with the sword.
עמוד 50 - 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 103 - Which of you convinceth me of sin ? And if I say the truth, why do ye not believe me? He that is of God heareth God's words : ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
עמוד 128 - My own East ! How nearer God we were ! He glows above With scarce an intervention, presses close And palpitatingly, his soul o'er ours : We feel him, nor by painful reason know...
עמוד 290 - tis clear if we refuse The means so limited, the tools so rude To execute our purpose, life will fleet, And we shall fade, and leave our task undone.
