Halaman 8 - Happy the man - and happy he alone He who can call today his own, He who, secure within, can say 'Tomorrow, do thy worst, for I have lived today: Be fair or foul or rain or shine, The joys I have possessed in spite of Fate are mine: Not Heaven itself upon the Past has power, But what has been has been, and I have had my hour.
Halaman 61 - Paradise Lost is one of the books which the reader admires and lays down, and forgets to take up again. None ever wished it longer than it is. Its perusal is a duty rather than a pleasure.
Halaman 2 - The Lord gave, and the Lord taketh away, and blessed be the name of the Lord.
Halaman 62 - Lost is one of the books which the reader admires and lays down, and forgets to take up again. None ever wished it longer than it is. Its perusal is a duty rather than a pleasure.

Halaman 24 - Eut it is not fair, that all this looseness, and all this variety should be still floating in the world, in the face of an authoritative communication from God Himself. Had no message come to us from the fountain head of truth, it were natural enough for every individual mind to betake itself to its own speculation.
