Seite 284 - And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest ; as with the servant, so with his master ; as with the maid, so with her mistress ; as with the buyer, so with the seller ; as with the lender, so with the borrower ; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him.
Seite 420 - When I was a child, I spake as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child : now that I am become a man, I have put away childish things.

Seite 126 - Enough, we are here, and you see that you were wrong! You .would not believe that the noise of the city would grate on my ears after your sweet country joys. Certainly, Mam'sell, Strasburg never seemed to me so empty as now. I hope it may be better when time shall have worn away a little of the memory of our delightful, unrestrained enjoyment, when I shall no longer feel so vividly how good, how amiable, my friend is.

Seite 165 - ... the oppressed fulness of his heart, lines of farewell to Kestner and Lotte, still preserved ; in the morning adding to Lotte's note a last word, enclosing some pictures for the children, forgotten until then. " Always a merry heart, dear Lotte, you are happier than a hundred — but not insensible ! and I, dear Lotte, am happy that I read in your eyes your belief that I will never change.
