Seite 116 - there is One God and Father of all, who. is above all, and through all, and in us all
Seite 82 - In the days of affluence always think of poverty ; do not let want come upon you, and make you remember with sorrow the time of plenty.
Seite 140 - And does ten thousand other things ; Allow a line, nay, but a comma, To each, turgeret hoc diploma ; Quare ; ut tandem concludamus, Qui brevitatem approbamus (For brevity is always good, Providing we be understood).
