Página 132 - Thrice blest is he to whom is given The instinct that can tell That God is on the field when He Is most invisible.
Página 57 - All accidents, and to the very road Which they have fashioned would confine us down, Like engines ; when will their presumption learn, That in the unreasoning progress of the world A wiser spirit is at work for us, A better eye than theirs, most prodigal Of blessings, and most studious of our good, Even in what seem our most unfruitful hours...
Página 74 - For whosoever will save his life shall lose it ; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the Gospel's, the same shall save it.
Página 62 - Had proffered them before. To them was life a simple art Of duties to be done, A game where each man took his part, A race where all must run ; A battle whose great scheme and scope They little cared to know, Content as men-at-arms to cope Each with his fronting foe.
Página 1 - Most people dislike vanity in others, whatever share they have of it themselves; but I give it fair quarter wherever I meet with it, being persuaded that it is often productive of good to the possessor, and to others that are within his sphere of action; and therefore, in many cases, it would not be altogether absurd if a man were to thank God for his vanity among the other comforts of life.

Or He deserts us at the hour The fight is all but lost ; And seems to leave us to ourselves Just when we need Him most.

Ill masters good ; good seems to change To ill with greatest ease ; And, worst of all, the good with good Is at cross purposes.
