Sayfa 22 - The trivial round, the common task, Would furnish all we ought to ask; Room to deny ourselves ; a road To bring us, daily, nearer God.
Sayfa 96 - WHAT are we set on earth for ? Say, to toil ; Nor seek to leave thy tending of the vines For all the heat o' the day, till it declines, And Death's mild curfew shall from work assoil. God did anoint thee with His odorous oil, To wrestle, not to reign ; and He assigns All thy tears over, like pure crystallines. For younger fellow-workers of the soil To wear for amulets. So others shall Take patience...
Sayfa 112 - Count each affliction, whether light or grave, God's messenger sent down to thee ; do thou With courtesy receive him ; rise and bow ; And, ere his shadow pass thy threshold, crave Permission first his heavenly feet to lave ; Then lay before him all thou hast ; allow No cloud of passion to usurp thy brow, Or mar thy hospitality ; no wave Of mortal tumult to obliterate The soul's marmoreal calmness : Grief should be Like joy, majestic, equable, sedate ; Confirming, cleansing, raising, making free ;...
Sayfa 15 - Every day is a fresh beginning. Every morn is the world made new; You who are weary of sorrow and sinning, Here is a beautiful hope for you — A hope for me and a hope for you.
Sayfa 27 - The grave itself is but a covered bridge, Leading from light to light, through a brief darkness ! PRINCE HENRY, emerging from the bridge.
Sayfa 102 - BUILD a little fence of trust Around to-day. Fill the space with loving work, And therein stay. Look not through the sheltering bars Upon to-morrow, God will help thee bear what comes Of joy or sorrow.
Sayfa 52 - For he hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the Lord behold the earth; To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death...
Sayfa 15 - Every day is a fresh beginning; Listen, my soul, to the glad refrain, And, spite of old sorrow and older sinning. And puzzles forecasted, and possible pain, Take heart with the day, and begin again ! — Susan C<x>Hdf/e, in the Chrinttan Union.
Sayfa 47 - Droop not though shame, sin, and anguish are round thee ; Bravely fling off the cold chain that hath bound thee, Look to yon pure heaven smiling beyond thee ; Rest not content in thy darkness — a clod. Work for some good, be it ever so slowly ; Cherish some flower, be it ever so lowly ; Labor ! all labor is noble and holy ; Let thy great deeds be thy prayer to thy God.
Sayfa 46 - Is the heart a well left empty ? None but God its void can fill ; Nothing but a ceaseless fountain can its ceaseless longings still. Is the heart a living power ? self-entwined, its strength sinks low ; It can only live in loving, and by serving love will grow.
