Page 178 - If it enrich not the heart of another, its waters, returning Back to their springs, like the rain, shall fill them full of refreshment; That which the fountain sends forth returns again to the fountain. Patience; accomplish thy labor; accomplish thy work of affection!
Page 179 - All was ended now, the hope, and the fear, and the sorrow, All the aching of heart, the restless, unsatisfied longing, All the dull, deep pain, and constant anguish of patience ! And, as she pressed once more the lifeless head to her bosom, Meekly she bowed her own, and murmured,
Page 47 - Wie von unsichtbaren Geistern gepeitscht, gehen die Sonnenpferde der Zeit mit unsers Schicksals leichtem Wagen durch; und uns bleibt nichts, als mutig gefaßt die Zügel festzuhalten und bald rechts bald links, vom Steine hier, vom Sturze da die Räder wegzulenken. Wohin es geht, wer weiß es? Erinnert er sich doch kaum, woher er kam.
Page 168 - Stalworth and stately in form was the man of seventy winters; Hearty and hale was he, an oak that is covered with snowflakes; White as the snow were his locks, and his cheeks as brown as the oak-leaves.

Vast meadows stretched to the eastward, Giving the village its name, and pasture to flocks without number. Dikes, that the hands of the farmers had raised...
Page 179 - Many a languid head, upraised as Evangeline entered, Turned on its pillow of pain to gaze while she passed, for her presence Fell on their hearts like a ray of the sun on the walls of a prison. And, as she looked around, she saw how Death, the consoler, Laying his hand upon many a heart, had healed it forever.
Page 12 - In der Tat man sollte das Studium des Müßiggangs nicht so sträflich vernachlässigen, sondern es zur Kunst und Wissenschaft, ja zur Religion bilden! Um alles in Eins zu fassen: je göttlicher ein Mensch oder ein Werk des Menschen ist, je ähnlicher werden sie der Pflanze; diese ist unter allen Formen der Natur die sittlichste, und die schönste. Und also wäre ja das höchste vollendetste Leben nichts als ein reines Vegetieren.
Page 151 - Eigentum, und so spricht er sie als das Seinige aus. Nachdem er aber der Zeit wiedergegeben hat was er von ihr empfangen, ist er arm. Er gleicht einer Quelle, die von zugetragenem Wasser eine Weile gesprudelt hat, und die aufhört zu rieseln, sobald der erborgte Vorrat erschöpft ist.
