第 390 頁 - For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.
第 119 頁 - I have trodden the winepress alone ; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment. For the day of vengeance is in my heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.
第 308 頁 - ... influences as excite and sustain these powers ; he is not one, but both. Every man's mind is, in this respect, modified by all the objects of Nature and art ; by every word and every suggestion which he ever admitted to act upon his consciousness ; it is the mirror upon which all forms are reflected and in which they compose one form. Poets, not otherwise than philosophers, painters, sculptors and musicians, are, in one sense, the creators, and, in another, the creations, of their age.

By religion I do not mean here the church-creed which he 25 professes, the articles of faith which he will sign and, in words or otherwise, assert; not this wholly, in many cases not this at all. We see men of all kinds of professed creeds attain to almost all degrees of worth or worthlessness under each or any of them.
第 218 頁 - Now I'ma wretch, indeed— methinks I see him already in the cart, sweeter and more lovely than the nosegay in his hand! —I hear the crowd extolling his resolution and intrepidity !— What volleys of sighs are sent from the windows of Holborn, that so comely a youth should be brought to disgrace ! — I see him at the tree ! The whole circle are in tears! — even butchers weep!— Jack Ketch himself hesitates to perform his duty, and would be glad to lose his fee, by a reprieve.
第 267 頁 - Wert thou all that I wish thee, great, glorious, and free, First flower of the earth, and first gem of the sea, I might hail thee with prouder, with happier brow, But oh ! could I love thee more deeply than now?
第 379 頁 - Confute me," he concluded," by proofs of Scripture, or else by plain just arguments: I cannot recant otherwise. For it is neither safe nor prudent to do aught against conscience. Here stand I; I can do no other: God assist me!"—It is, as we say, the greatest moment in the Modern History of Men.
第 382 頁 - Really his utterances, are they not a kind of ' revelation ;' — what we must call such for want of some other name ? It is from the heart of the world that he comes ; he is portion of the primal reality of things. God has made many revelations : but this man too, has not God made him, the latest and newest of all? The ' inspiration of the Almighty giveth him understanding :' we must listen before all to him.
