Popular passages

Page 165 - I shall see him, but not now ; I shall behold him, but not nigh : there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.
Page 501 - Then are they glad, because they are at rest: and so he bringeth them unto the haven where they would be.
Page 123 - BEAT! beat! drums!— blow! bugles! blow! Through the windows— through doors— burst like a ruthless force, Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation, Into the school where the scholar is studying; Leave not the bridegroom quiet— no happiness must he have now with his bride, Nor the peaceful farmer any peace, ploughing his field or gathering his grain, So fierce you whirr and pound you drums— so shrill you bugles blow.
Page 395 - Senate, who shall inquire into the condition of the States which formed the so-called Confederate States of America, and report whether they or any of them are entitled to be represented in either House of Congress...
Page 330 - Whatever it is," rejoined Allan, "we'll treat it like a dose of physic — we'll take it at once, and be done with it." He went on reading: '"And no license to marry without banns shall be granted, unless oath shall be first made by one of the parties that he or she believes that there is no impediment of kindred or alliance' — well, I can take my oath of that with a safe conscience!
Page 167 - And brought blithe Christmas back again, With all his hospitable train. Domestic and religious rite Gave honour to the holy night ; On Christmas Eve the bells were rung ; On Christmas Eve the mass was sung : That only night in all the year Saw the stoled priest the chalice rear.
Page 243 - There is in nature no moving power but mind, all else is passive and inert; in human affairs this power is opinion; in political affairs it is public opinion; and he who can grasp this power, with it will subdue the fleshly arm of physical strength . . . those statesmen who know how to avail themselves of the passions, and the interests, and the opinions of mankind...
Page 463 - I have, said he, often and often in the course of the Session, and the vicissitudes of my hopes and fears as to its issue, looked at that behind the President without being able to tell whether it was rising or setting; But now at length I have the happiness to know that it is a rising and not a setting Sun.
Page 113 - Its difficulty was much enhanced by the mode of publication ; for it would be very unreasonable to expect that many readers, pursuing a story in portions from month to month through nineteen months, will, until they have it before them complete, perceive the relations of its finer threads to the whole pattern which is always before the eyes of the story- weaver at his loom.
Page 384 - For he seeth that wise men die, likewise the fool and the brutish person perish, and leave their wealth to others ; their inward thought is that their houses shall continue forever, and their dwelling-place to all generations : they call their lands after their own names.
