Сторінка 292 - Unargued I obey : so God ordains; God is thy law, thou mine: to know no more Is woman's happiest knowledge and her praise.
Сторінка 217 - ... Through the summer her flesh has wasted away till she seemed but the shadow of her former self. Her eyes appeared larger, and as the shadows deepened about them, of a deeper blue than ever — sometimes as I looked at her she startled me; it seemed to me as if all of mortality were gone, and I were standing in the presence of a visible spirit.

Сторінка 214 - I did not feel to go." — (Here again Bessie's name was written, and again effaced — the tender mother shrunk from giving the blow that must be given.) " Do not have any care, dear Eliot, about our basket and our store ; they are sufficiently filled. The children are nicely prepared for winter, even to their shoes. Just as I was casting about to see how I should get them made, there being no shoemaker left short of Boston, Jo Warren came home, his term of service having expired, and he, as he...
Сторінка 231 - Eliot's manliness was vanquished, and he wept like a child over his sister's letter. He reproached himself for having left home.
