Side 192 - He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much ; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children ; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task ; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul ; who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it ; who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had ; whose life was an inspiration...
Side 10 - The one same meaning, neither more nor less. He feeds upon her face by day and night, And she with true kind eyes looks back on him, Fair as the moon and joyful as the light : Not wan with waiting, not with sorrow dim ; Not as she is, but was when hope shone bright; Not as she is, but as she fills his dream.
Side 160 - Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavours. lf it may not, give us the strength to encounter that which is to come, that we be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath, and in all changes of fortune and down to the gates of death, loyal and loving one to another.

Side 160 - WE thank Thee for this place in which we dwell ; for the love that unites us; for the peace accorded us this day; for the hope with which we expect the morrow; for the health, the work, the food, and the bright skies that make our lives delightful; for our friends in all parts of the earth, and our friendly helpers in this foreign isle.
Side 141 - I dedicate my time to this charming lady; there is a prospect of her leaving town with Sir William, for two or three weeks. They are very much hurried at present, as everything is going on for their speedy marriage, and all the world following her, and talking of her, so that if she has not more good sense than vanity, her brain must be turned.
Side 188 - That impression of ineffable mental charm was formed at the first moment of acquaintance, and it never lessened or became modified. Stevenson's rapidity in the sympathetic interchange of ideas was, doubtless, the source of it. He has been described as an "egotist," but I challenge the description.
