Seite 62 - THREE years she grew in sun and shower ; Then Nature said, " A lovelier flower On earth was never sown; This Child I to myself will take ; She shall be mine, and I will make A Lady of my own.
Seite 33 - No book is worth anything which is not worth much; nor is it serviceable, until it has been read, and re-read, and loved, and loved again; and marked, so that you can refer to the passages you want in it, as a soldier can seize the weapon he needs in an armoury, or a housewife bring the spice she needs from her store.
