Стр. 114 - I knew that the animal was blind in one eye, because it had cropped the herbage only on one side of its path ; and I perceived that it was lame in one leg, from the faint impression which that particular foot had produced upon the sand.
Стр. 207 - And the children of Israel did so and gathered, some more, some less. And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.
Стр. 150 - Slave of the mine ! thy yellow light Gleams baleful as the tomb-fire drear. — A gentle vision comes by night My lonely widow'd heart to cheer ; Her eyes are dim with many a tear, That once were guiding stars to mine : Her fond heart throbs with many a fear ! — I cannot bear to see thee shine.

Стр. 123 - There are two modes of establishing our reputation : to be praised by honest men, and to be abused by rogues.— It is best, however, to secure the former, because it will invariably be accompanie d by the latter.
Стр. 189 - No two things differ more than hurry and despatch. Hurry is the mark of a weak mind, despatch of a strong one.
Стр. 97 - In youth, we are looking forward to things that are to come ; in old age we are looking backward to things that are gone past ; in manhood, although we appear, indeed, to be more occupied in things that are present, yet even that is too often absorbed in vague determinations to be vastly happy on some future day, when we have time.
