Sayfa 103 - But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet ; and bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it ; and let us eat and be merry ; for this my son was dead, and is alive again ; he was lost, and is found.
Sayfa 7 - In short, matters are come to such an extremity, that the squire has not said his prayers either in public or private this half year; and that the parson threatens him, if he does not mend his manners, to pray for him in the face of the whole congregation. Feuds of this nature, though too frequent in the country, are very fatal to the ordinary people ; who are so used to be dazzled with riches, that they pay as much deference to the understanding of a man of an estate, as of a man of learning...
Sayfa 137 - And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
Sayfa 6 - BE MERCIFUL unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
Sayfa 63 - Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall; but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Sayfa 25 - Reviewer), sketched by the writer of Gilbert Arnold, of one type of the English clergyman, and not, we fear, a very uncommon one in the south. "Before the advent of the Arnolds, the parish had been much neglected. The previous incumbent was a rich man, who might have done great things for the poor. But having the power, he had not the will. He drove through the village, sometimes, in his high double-bodied, well-horsed phaeton, from which his liveried servant descended to deliver a message at the...
Sayfa 37 - ... touched me to the heart to see how much the poor child thought of the disgrace which this sad affair would bring upon my family. ' And what would I think of her ?' she said, ' what would Miss Lucy think?' I said that we should pity her from the very depths of our hearts. I never could see, Sullivan, the benefit of harshness in these cases. The poor are very prone to be harsh to their unfortunate children. They leave them to themselves — send them out into the world to earn their own livelihoods...
Sayfa 38 - ... shewn towards the offender in the hour of suffering and remorse. Jessie's heart might have been hardened for ever, if I had closed mine against her, as did her ill-judged mother. But I spoke kindly to her; and all the softness of her nature was poured out as in a great flood."— Gilbert Arnold.
Sayfa 27 - He strove to encourage an inward sense of their own dignity and importance, and to induce them to consider that there were earthly friends to whom they were bound, by ties of almost parental gratitude, to render an account of themselves. At all events, he let them know that he was watching over them — that their sorrow would be his sorrow, and their shame his shame. In this good work his gentle daughter was a willing and an influential associate.
