Page 377 - But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. 34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin. The unmarried woman careth for the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and in spirit : but she that is married careth for the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
Page 191 - This is the same voice : can thy soul know change ? Hail then, and hearken from the realms of help! Never may I commence my song, my due To God who best taught song by gift of thee, Except with bent head and beseeching hand — That still, despite the distance and the dark What was, again may be; some interchange Of grace, some splendor once thy very thought, Some benediction anciently thy smile...
Page 381 - I stood at Naples once, a night so dark I could have scarce conjectured there was earth anywhere, sky or sea or world at all : but the night's black was burst through by a blaze — thunder struck blow on blow, earth groaned and bore, through her whole length of mountain visible : there lay the city thick and plain with spires, and, like a ghost disshrouded, white the sea.

Page 312 - There's not a strain to Memory dear, Nor flower in classic grove ; There's not a sweet note warbled here, But minds us of Thy love ; O Lord, our Lord, and spoiler of our foes, There is no light but Thine ; with Thee all beauty glows.
Page 255 - Constancy of form in the grouping of the molecules, and not constancy of the molecules themselves, is the correlative of this constancy of perception. Life is a wave which in no two consecutive moments of its existence is composed of the same particles.
Page 191 - O lyric Love, half angel and half bird, And all a wonder and a wild desire, — Boldest of hearts that ever braved the sun, Took sanctuary within the holier blue, And sang a kindred soul out to his face, — Yet human at the red-ripe of the heart — When the first summons from the darkling earth Reached thee amid thy chambers, blanched...
