Sivu 50 - The quality of mercy is not strained'; It droppeth as the gentle dew from heaven Upon the place beneath* : it is twice blessed* ; It blesseth him that gives', and him that takes*.
Sivu iii - The God of Israel said, the Rock of Israel spake to me, He that ruleth over men must be just, ruling in the fear of God. And he shall be as the light of the morning, when the sun riseth, even a morning without clouds; as the tender grass springing out of the earth by clear shining after rain.
Sivu 17 - For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
Sivu 2 - For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward ; for the memory of them is forgotten. Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished ; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.
Sivu 146 - And we also bless thy holy Name for all thy servants departed this life in thy faith and fear; beseeching thee to give us grace so to follow their good examples, that with them we may be partakers of thy heavenly kingdom : Grant this, O Father, for Jesus Christ's sake, our only Mediator and Advocate.
Sivu 58 - This I can now truly say, that so long as I have lived I have striven to live worthily, and after my death to leave my memory to my descendants in good works2.
Sivu 98 - Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; not slothful in business ; fervent in spirit ; serving the Lord ; rejoicing in hope ; patient in tribulation ; continuing instant in prayer; distributing to the necessity of saints ; given to hospitality.
Sivu 124 - Hath hung before our mind's eyes,heavy and dark Enlighten now these mind's eyes with thy light, Master of life ; for thou, O tender Father, Art very brightness of true light thyself ; Thyself Almighty Father, the sure rest Of all thy fast and true ones ; winningly Thou orderest it that they may see Thyself. Thou art of all things...
Sivu 63 - Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold.
Sivu 27 - Tis with joy I cease. The goddesses of destiny are come to fetch me. Odin hath sent them from the habitation of the Gods. I shall be joyfully received into the highest seat, I shall quaff full goblets among the Gods. The hours of my life are passed away. I die laughing.
