Side 130 - Love purifies the heart from self; it strengthens and ennobles the character, gives higher motives and a nobler aim to every action of life, and makes both man and woman strong, noble, and courageous; and the power to love truly and devotedly is the noblest gift with which a human being can be endowed, but it is a sacred fire and not to be burned before idols.
Side 115 - Like a poet hidden In the light of thought, Singing hymns unbidden, Till the world is wrought To sympathy with hopes and fears it heeded not...
Side 96 - Did she look to Camelot. And at the closing of the day She loosed the chain, and down she lay; The broad stream bore her far away, The Lady of Shalott. Lying, robed in snowy white That loosely flew to left and right The leaves upon her falling light Thro...
Side 29 - But the Sensitive Plant which could give small fruit Of the love which it felt from the leaf to the root, Received more than all, it loved more than ever, Where none wanted but it, could belong to the giver...

It was into a place of this kind that Mr Ralph Nickleby gazed, as he sat with his hands in his pockets looking out of the window. He had fixed his eyes upon a distorted fir tree, planted by some former tenant in a tub that had once been green, and left there, years before,...
Side 235 - Ay — there's a world- wide difference between your of course and your if,' said her brother dryly. ' You know there is nothing in the world I would not do for you unless I thought it wrong. I will see anybody you choose to bring here, and entertain them to the best of my power, — if the entertainment may be without cards or wine.
Side 29 - ... the old world, when Roman civilisation had run to seed. These men have the old barbaric strength of undisciplined life ; they need educating, they need civilising; but they will change the face of the world.
Side 34 - ... idle fancy, if not a grave impropriety ; and they are taught the necessity of making a good match — it is about the only thing they hear treated as a reality. Those who have any good, right, womanly feeling in their nature, wake, when it is too late, to the knowledge of what they have bartered away. Believe me, that no man, with the freedom and outgoing activity which is his birthright, can know or imagine what is endured by a woman shut up within herself, with no outlet for her feelings, —...
