Halaman 30 - What will become of me,' thought he, ' if I am obliged to remain in the wood with nothing to eat or drink ! Must I — oh ! must I lie in the dark; perhaps a serpent, or some bad man, may come and kill me while I slumber.
Halaman 32 - Oh, my father, who art in heaven,' he sobbed out, ' forsake not a poor lost child !' Tears almost choked him, but he was soon roused by a rustling among the bushes, and now indeed he really saw a tall black figure approach him, with a white cap on his head, and a milk white pigeon flew before it.
Halaman 248 - ... little pot liquor; and, as if this was not enough, I am often obliged to wait till three or four o'clock before I can get a morsel; and when he brings me something, he gives it me with the most cutting words : he has even said that he is tired of me — that he could not any longer nurse me — and that I had lived long enough — and that it was time that I should leave the world. Oh! Mr. Jones, it is hard to hear such things from a child whom I have carefully brought up from his infancy, and...
Halaman 174 - ... knitting to earn bread for her children; and when she can get nothing to do she comes to me to weed the garden. They have been at work in the garden to-day, or the children would not look so dirty; for though they have but few clothes, she keeps them clean. Look, there comes her husband ; poor man, he lost the use of his hands by working at a white-lead manufactory. He went into the hospital, and his wife sold one thing after another to maintain him. I heard of her distress. You know I am not...
Halaman 26 - The world goes very well with me, master,' replied he ; 'I wish it went as well with everybody as with me. I am well, thank God ! and health is dearer to me than a whole sack-full of gold. As long as I have health, I can work hard and laugh at the foolish fancies rich people vex themselves about. After I have dug from five in the morning almost till noon, bless my heart ! how good I find my meal ; with what an appetite I eat my bread and cheese. Believe me, my noble master, though he be lord of the...
Halaman 98 - You are right, my good friend,' said Mr. Jones, ' do not forget this experience; stand firm to your plough, be industrious, and not only a good harvest will be the reward of your labour, but you will have health and cheerfulness while looking forward to it, and doing your duty in the station in which God has placed you.' Saying so they left him; and the coachman, a second time, telling them that if they went on at this rate they should not get home before midnight, they got into the coach again,...
Halaman 101 - ... fortune. I mentioned our circumstances to my wife ; but she said that we could not retrench our manner of living without appearing mean in the eyes of all our acquaintance. We had a large estate to expect from a rich uncle, who could not live long ; and when we inherited his fortune, we could very well afford to live in the same way we had done ever since our marriage. I suffered myself to be persuaded; my expenses always exceeded my income, and most part of the things I purchased were superfluities....
Halaman 264 - ... this is another Mrs. Jones.' And Charles became a worthy man, who by his activity and benevolence gained the affection and respect of all his friends and acquaintance. For a long time Mr. Jones saw in the conduct of his children the fruits of the good lessons which he and his wife had given them; and though in the following years he considerably increased his fortune, yet he was still more and more convinced that, among all his treasures, he found nothing that afforded him so much pleasure as...
Halaman 150 - ... in your company, you must not always speak of yourself and your talents, for you will then certainly disgust them. You must attend to what others say, and observe their good qualities, and not be eager to obtrude the little you know on everybody you meet. I am not surprised that they laughed at you. If a man was to be in my company who only talked of himself, and took care to let me see that he thought me an inferior, because he had a larger fortune than me, I should myself laugh in his face....
Halaman 256 - ... such a short time destroyed. And do you know by what means He has done all this? By simple flakes of snow, which He made fall from the clouds, and afterwards become water. What He will, He can do ! He has not only the flakes of snow under His command, but all that the universe contains must do His will With the smallest things He can produce the greatest effects. What, in comparison with man, is a caterpillar? nevertheless, when he causes these insects to multiply abundantly, He can, by their...
