Sivu 238 - Verily I say unto you ; There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel's, but he shall receive an hundred-fold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions, and in the world to come eternal life.
Sivu 243 - And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be upon thy heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thy house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
Sivu 174 - The first glance of this scene hurries our senses into the opinion, that this earth has been created in time, , that the mountains were formed first, that the rivers began to flow afterwards, that in this place particularly they have been dammed up by the Blue ridge of mountains, and have formed an ocean which filled the whole valley ; that continuing to rise they have at length broken over at this spot, and have torn the mountain down from its summit to its base.

Sivu 193 - Sees in his flexile limbs untutor'd grace, Power on his forehead, beauty in his face ; Sees in his breast, where lawless passions rove, The heart of friendship and the home of love ; Sees in his mind, where desolation reigns, Fierce as his clime...
