Side 140 - Rev. xxi, 3, 4. III. 1. A third scriptural mark of those who are born of God, and the greatest of all, is love ; even the love of God shed abroad in their hearts, by the Holy Ghost which is given unto them,
Side 149 - Twelve years ago I went to feed my flocks ; the weather was hazy. I sat down upon a rock and asked myself sorrowful questions ; yes, sorrowful, because I was unable to answer them. Who has touched the stars with his hands — on what pillars do they rest, I asked myself.
Side 439 - According to the theory of the British constitution, all vacant lands are vested in the crown, as representing the nation ; and the exclusive power to grant them is admitted to reside in the crown, as a branch of the royal prerogative. It has been already shown that this principle was as fully recognized in America as in the island of Great Britain.
Side 176 - Curate shall instruct him, that if he do truly repent him of his sins, and stedfastly believe that Jesus Christ hath suffered death upon the Cross for him, and shed His Blood for his redemption, earnestly remembering the benefits he hath thereby, and giving him hearty thanks therefore, he doth eat and drink the Body and Blood of our Saviour Christ profitably to his Soul's health, although he do not receive the Sacrament with his mouth.
Side 139 - Now they were sitting at the feet of Jesus, clothed, and in their right mind.
Side 198 - You have substituted your agapae for the sacrifices of the Pagans; for their idols your martyrs, whom you serve with the very same honors. You appease the shades of the dead with wine and feasts; you celebrate the solemn festivals of the Gentiles, their calends, and their solstices; and as to their manners, those you have retained without any alteration. Nothing distinguishes you from the Pagans, except that you hold your assemblies apart from them.
Side 90 - Grant that all carnal affections may die in them, and that all things belonging to the Spirit may live and grow in them. Amen. Grant that they may have power and strength to have victory, and to triumph against the devil, the world, and the flesh.
Side 149 - I cannot see the wind, but what is it ? Who brings ' " it, makes it blow, and roar and terrify us ? Do I ' " know how the corn sprouts ? Yesterday there was ' " not a blade in my field ; to-day I returned to the ' " field and found some. Who can have given to the ' " earth the wisdom and the power to produce it ?" ' Then I buried my face in both my hands.
Side 440 - ... and control it. An absolute title to lands cannot exist, at the same time, in different persons, or in different governments. An absolute must be an exclusive title. or at least, a title which excludes all others not compatible with it. All our institutions recognize the absolute title of the crown, subject only to the Indian right of occupancy, and recognize the absolute title of the crown to extinguish that right. This is incompatible with an absolute and complete title in the Indians.
Side 156 - I came, with one eye partly opened, for more light for my people, who sit in darkness. I go back with both eyes closed. How can I go back blind to my blind people? I made my way to you with strong arms, through many enemies and strange lands, that I might carry back much to them. I go back with both arms broken and empty.
