Pagina 112 - The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away ; blessed be the name of the Lord.
Pagina 16 - There is but one temple in the Universe,' says the devout Novak's, ' and that is the Body of Man. Nothing is holier than that high form. Bending before men is a reverence done to this Revelation in the Flesh. We touch Heaven when we lay our hand on a human body ! ' This sounds much like a mere flourish of rhetoric ; but it is not so.
Pagina 230 - Had he been a poor Half-and-half, he could have crouched into the corner, like so many others ; Scotland had not been delivered; and Knox had been without blame.

Pagina 1 - Universal History, the history of what man has accomplished in this world, is at bottom the History of the Great Men who have worked here.
Pagina 4 - The thoughts they had were the parents of the actions they did; their feelings were parents of their thoughts: it was the unseen and spiritual in them that determined the outward and actual; — their religion, as I say, was the great fact about them.
Pagina 170 - Shakspeare greater than Dante, in that he fought truly, and did conquer. Doubt it not, he had his own sorrows: those Sonnets of his will even testify expressly in what deep waters he had waded, and swum struggling for his life; —as what man like him ever failed to have to do?
