Seite 47 - If a small breeze obstruct the course, It whirls about, for want of force, And in its narrow circle gathers Nothing but chaff, and straws, and feathers.

By my dying friend's own desire, she was visited by the clergyman upon whose ministry she had attended ; and with him she conversed with her accustomed serenity, directing his attention to some of her own poor, who were likely to become more destitute by her loss ; and affectionately commending to his care the unfortunate girl whom her death was to cast once...
Seite 278 - Made use and fair advantage of his days; His years but young, but his experience old ; His head unmellowed, but his judgment ripe ; And, in a word, (for far behind his worth Come all the praises that I now bestow,) He is complete in feature, and in mind, With all good grace to grace a gentleman. Duke. Beshrew me, sir, but, if he make this good, He is as worthy for an empress' love, As meet to be an emperor's counsellor.

Yet it was no expression of impatience which betrayed her. For four months I scarcely quitted her bed-side, by day or by night. During this long protracted season of suffering, neither cry nor groan escaped her. Often have I wiped the big drops of agony from her forehead ; but she never complained....
Seite 232 - ... her true power and value. I -am much mistaken, if it be not easier to die like a martyr than to live like a Christian ; and if the glory of our faith be not better displayed in a life of meekness, humility, and self-denial, than even in a death of triumph.
