Page 64 - But trailing clouds of glory do we come From God who is our home: Heaven lies about us in our infancy! Shades of the prison-house begin to close Upon the growing boy ; But he beholds the light, and whence it flows, He sees it in his joy !

Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them ; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.

Page 40 - God, who makes the sun to know His proper hour to rise, And to give light to all below, Doth send him round the skies.
Page 36 - I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
Page 125 - when a female is likely to become a mother, she ought to be doubly careful of her temper ; and, in particular, to indulge no ideas that are not cheerful, and no sentiments that are not kind.
Page 165 - Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O LORD, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.
