Page 242 - Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
Page 128 - Add iniquity unto their iniquity : and let them not come into thy righteousness. 28 Let them be blotted out of the book of the living, and not be written with the righteous.
Page 131 - Govi that I told you of, having gone with his bow and arrows to shoot peafowl, not seeing the Saint, let fly an arrow at one of the peacocks ; and this arrow struck the holy man in the right side, insomuch that he died of the wound, sweetly addressing himself to his Creator.

An entire world is reserved for your endeavours, and nothing but so large a field is worthy of your courage and your zeal.

Amen, amen I say to you, unless the grain of wheat falling into the ground die, itself remaineth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, keepeth it unto life eternal.
Page 111 - Love feels no burthen, values no labours, would willingly do more than it can ; complains not of impossibility, because it conceives that it may and can do all things. It is able, therefore, to do anything, and it performs and effects many things, where he that loves not, faints and lies down.
Page 48 - Qual pare a riguardar la Garisenda Sotto il chinato, quando un nuvol vada
