الصفحة 38 - Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light ? let him trust in the Name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.
الصفحة 71 - Jesus Christ; for the means of grace and for the hope of glory. And, we beseech thee, give us that due sense of all thy mercies, that our hearts may be unfeignedly thankful...
الصفحة 88 - You are distinguished from wild beasts: you are distinguished from cattle. Besides, you are a citizen of the world, and a part of it ; not a subservient, but a principal part.
الصفحة 189 - Vice is the aft of man, bv passion tost, And in the shoreless sea of folly lost ; But thou what vice disorders can'st compose, And profit by the malice of thy foes : So blending good with evil, fair with foul, As thence to model one harmonious whole : One universal law of truth and right ; But wretched mortals shun the heavenly light; And, though to bliss direfting still their choice.
الصفحة ii - Stoics looked upon riches, human grandeur, grief, disquietudes, and pleasures as vanity, they were entirely employed in labouring for the happiness of mankind, and in exercising the duties of society. It seems as if they regarded that sacred spirit, which they believed to dwell within them, as a kind of favourable providence watchful over the human race. Born for society, they all believed that it was their destiny to labour for it; with so much the less fatigue, their rewards were all within themselves.
الصفحة 70 - Make use of me for the future as thou wilt. I am of the same mind ; I am equal with thee. I refuse nothing which seems good to thee. Lead me whither thou wilt. Clothe me in whatever dress thou wilt.
الصفحة 87 - When, then, you have shut the doors and made darkness within, remember never to say that you are alone, for you are not; but God is within, and your Demon is within, and what need have they of light to see what you are doing?
الصفحة xxxi - Ought we not, whether we dig, or plough, or eat, to sing this hymn to God ? Great is God, who has supplied us with these instruments to till the ground ; great is God, who has given us hands and organs of digestion ; who has given us to grow insensibly, to breathe in sleep.
الصفحة 175 - If Evil were thy Deeds, repenting mourn, And let thy Soul with strong Remorse be torn. If Good, the Good with Peace of Mind repay, And to thy secret Self with Pleasure say, Rejoice, my Heart, for all went well to Day.
الصفحة 38 - I should utterly have fainted : but that I believe verily to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. 16 O tarry thou the Lord's leisure : be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart; and put thou thy trust in the Lord.
