Seite 72 - A soldier, an' please your reverence, said I, prays as often (of his own accord) as a parson; and when he is fighting for his king, and for his own life, and for his honour too, he has the most reason to pray to God of any one in the whole world. 'Twas well said of thee, Trim, said my uncle Toby. But when a soldier, said I, an...

Seite 70 - I get better, my dear, said he, as he gave his purse to his son to pay the man, — we can hire horses from hence. But alas! the poor gentleman will never get from hence, said the landlady to me, — for I heard the death-watch all night long; — and when he dies, the youth, his son, will certainly die with him; for he is broken-hearted already. I was hearing this account...
Seite 72 - I believe, an' please your reverence,' said I, 'that when a soldier gets time to pray, he prays as heartily as a parson, though not with all his fuss and hypocrisy.'

At the great and general review of us all, corporal, at the day of judgment, and not till then, it will be seen who have done their duties in this world, and who have not ; and we shall be advanced, Trim, accordingly.
Seite 154 - I generally fall into conversation with him ; and surely never is my imagination so busy as in framing his responses from the etchings of his countenance — and where those carry me not deep enough in flying from my own heart into his, and seeing what is natural for an ass to think — as well as a man, upon the occasion.
