עמוד 29 - And Jacob served seven years for Rachel ; and they seemed unto him but a few days, for the love he had to her.
עמוד 104 - And he said, While the child was yet alive, I fasted and wept: for I said, Who can tell whether God will be gracious to me, that the child may live? But now he is dead, wherefore should I fast? can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.
עמוד 29 - I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
עמוד 163 - I am content to tell my simple story, without trying to make things seem better than they were ; dreading nothing, indeed, but falsity, which, in spite of one's best efforts, there is reason to dread. Falsehood is so easy, truth so difficult. The pencil is conscious of a delightful facility in drawing a griffin — the longer the claws, and the larger the wings, the better; but that marvellous facility which we mistook for genius is apt to forsake us when we want to draw a real unexaggerated lion.
עמוד 61 - ... what shall we eat, and what shall we drink, and wherewithal shall we be clothed...
עמוד 165 - It is so needful we should remember their existence, else we may happen to leave them quite out of our religion and philosophy and frame lofty theories which only fit a world of extremes. Therefore let Art always remind us of them ; therefore let us always have men ready to give the loving pains of a life to the faithful representing of commonplace things — men who see beauty in these commonplace things and delight in showing how kindly the light of heaven falls on them.
עמוד 2 - AWAKE, my soul, and with the sun Thy daily stage of duty run ; Shake off dull sloth, and joyful rise To pay thy morning sacrifice.
עמוד 361 - Dark and cheerless is the morn Unaccompanied by thee ; Joyless is the day's return, Till thy mercy's beams I see ; Till they inward light impart, Glad my eyes, and warm my heart.
עמוד 142 - Nature has her language, and she is not unveracious; but we don't know all the intricacies of her syntax just yet, and in a hasty reading we may happen to extract the very opposite of her real meaning.
עמוד 29 - The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit: but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
