Common terms and phrases

Popular passages

Page 24 - SPEAK gently! it is better far, To rule by love than fear ; Speak gently ! let no harsh words mar, The good we might do here.
Page 104 - You are doubtless very big ; But all sorts of things and weather Must be taken in together, To make up a year And a sphere. And I think it no disgrace To occupy my place.
Page 230 - Of this at least I feel assured, that there is no such thing as forgetting possible to the mind; a thousand accidents may and will interpose a veil between our present consciousness and the secret inscriptions on the mind; accidents of the same sort will also rend away this veil; but alike, whether veiled or unveiled, the inscription remains for ever...
Page 211 - Other refuge have I none; Hangs my helpless soul on Thee; Leave, ah, leave me not alone, Still support and comfort me. All my trust on Thee is stayed, All my help from Thee I bring; Cover my defenceless head With the shadow of Thy wing.
Page 73 - A little spring had lost its way amid the grass and fern, A passing stranger scooped a well where weary men might turn ; He walled it in, and hung with care a ladle at the brink ; He thought not of the deed he did, but' judged that toil might drink.
