الصفحة 32 - They whose spirits are formed like mine, to whom a public exhibition of themselves, on any occasion, is mortal poison, may have some idea of the horrors of my situation; others can have none.
الصفحة 24 - Here it was that on a sudden, as if another sun had been kindled that instant in the heavens, on purpose to dispel sorrow and vexation of spirit, I felt the weight of all my misery taken off ; my heart became light and joyful in a moment ; I could have wept with transport, had I been alone.
الصفحة 110 - Thou art the source and centre of all minds, Their only point of rest, eternal Word ! From thee departing they are lost, and rove At random without honour, hope, or peace. From thee is all, that soothes the life of man, His high endeavour, and his glad success, His strength to suffer, and his will to serve...
الصفحة 74 - Unless the Almighty arm had been under me, I think I should have died with gratitude and joy. My eyes filled with tears, and my voice choked with transport. I could only look up to heaven in silent fear, overwhelmed with love and wonder. But the work of the Holy Spirit is best described in his own words : it is ' joy unspeakable, and full of glory.

To be sure you cannot hold the office at this rate,— where is the deputation ?' I gave him the key of the drawer where it was deposited; and his business requiring his immediate attendance, he took it away with him ; and thus ended all my connection with the Parliament office.
الصفحة 73 - God to spare me I would lead a better life, and that I would yet escape hell if a religious observance of my duty would secure me from it. Thus may the terror of the Lord make a Pharisee, but only the sweet voice of mercy in the gospel can make a Christian.
الصفحة 38 - I should do my patron, were all urged on me with irresistible energy. Being reconciled to the apprehension of madness, I began to be reconciled to the apprehension of death. Though formerly, in my happiest hours, I had never been able to glance a single thought that way, without shuddering at the idea of dissolution...
الصفحة 32 - I was led to expect an examination at the bar of the house, touching my sufficiency for the post I had taken. Being necessarily ignorant of the nature of that business, it became expedient that I should visit the office daily, in order to qualify myself for the strictest scrutiny. All the horror of my fears and perplexities now returned ; a thunderbolt would have been as welcome to me as this intelligence.
الصفحة 44 - I left the coach upon the Tower Wharf, intending never to return to it; but upon coming to the Quay, I found the water low, and a porter seated upon some goods there, as if on purpose to prevent me. This passage to the bottomless pit...
