Halaman 19 - To every man there openeth A way, and ways, and a way. And the high soul climbs the high way, And the low soul gropes the low: And in between, on the misty flats, The rest drift to and fro. But to every man there openeth A high way and a low, And every man decideth The way his soul shall go.
Halaman 53 - In Christ there is no East or West, In Him no South or North. But one great fellowship of love Throughout the whole wide earth.
Halaman 12 - The mills of God grind slowly, but they grind exceeding small. So soft and slow the great wheels go, they scarcely move at all, But the souls of men fall into them and are powdered into dust, And in that dust grow the Passion Flowers — Love, Hope and Trust.
Halaman 35 - Through every minute of this day, Be with me, Lord! Through every day of all this week, Be with me, Lord! Through every week of all this year, Be with me, Lord! Through all the years of all this life, Be with me, Lord! So shall the days and weeks and years Be threaded on a golden cord.

One sigh, perchance, for work unfinished here, Then a swift passing to a mightier sphere, New joys, perfected powers, the vision clear, And all the amplitude of Heaven to work The work he held so dear. Great-heart is dead, say they?

Halaman 20 - WHAT shall we be like when We cast this earthly body and attain To immortality? What shall we be like then? Ah, who shall say What vast expansions shall be ours that day? What transformations of this house of clay, To fit the heavenly mansions and the light of day?
Halaman 48 - Rabbi, begone! Thy powers Bring loss to us and ours. Our ways are not as Thine. Thou lovest men, we — swine. Oh, get you hence, Omnipotence, And take this fool of Thine! His soul?
