Стр. 82 - Show me the path. I had forgotten Thee When I was happy and free, Walking down here in the gladsome light o' the sun ; But now I come and mourn ; O set my feet In the road to Thy blest seat, And for the rest, O God, Thy will be done.
Стр. 164 - A man who can give up dreaming and go to his daily realities— who can smother down his heart, its love or woe, and take to the hard work of his hand — who defies fate — and if he must die, dies fighting to the last — that man is life's best hero.
Стр. 336 - In crown 8vo., frontispiece, 3s. 6d. cloth. ' A very pretty story, intended primarily for girls, but not too girlish for boys, or too childish for grown-up people.
