Pagina 17 - For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God ; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre ; but a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers.

Pagina 7 - I say the pulpit, in the sober use Of its legitimate peculiar powers, Must stand acknowledged, while the world shall stand, The most important and effectual guard, Support, and ornament of virtue's cause.
Pagina 23 - Then shall the righteous answer HIM, saying, LORD, when saw we THEE an hungred, and fed THEE ? or thirsty, and gave THEE drink? When saw we THEE a stranger, and took THEE in ? or naked, and clothed THEE ? Or when saw we THEE sick, or in prison, and came unto THEE...
Pagina 133 - And many monstrous forms in sleep we see, That neither were, nor are, nor e'er can be. Sometimes forgotten things, long cast behind, Rush forward in the brain, and come to mind. The nurse's legends are for truths received, And the man dreams but what the boy believed.
