Página 222 - A gentle sound, an awful light! Three angels bear the holy Grail: With folded feet, in stoles of white, On sleeping wings they sail. Ah, blessed vision! blood of God!

Página 35 - If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee: And in their hands they shall bear thee up, Lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Página 8 - I find everywhere schools, libraries, and mechanics' institutes springing up : and rich and poor meeting together more and more in the faith that God has made them all. As for the outward and material improvements — you know as well as I, that since free trade and emigration, the labourers confess themselves better off than they have been for fifty years ; and though you will not see in the chalk counties that rapid and enormous agricultural improvement...
Página 235 - ... no man ever yet was. My dear fellow, don't you see that what some painters call idealizing a portrait is, if it be wisely done, really painting for you the face which you see and know and love; her evershifting features, with expression varying more rapidly than the gleam of the diamond on her finger; features which you, in your turn, are looking at with ever-shifting eyes; while, perhaps, if it is a face which you love and have lingered over, a dozen other expressions equally belonging to it...
