Seite 188 - Likewise, ye wives, be in subjection to your own husbands, that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives, while they behold your chaste conversation coupled with fear.
Seite 188 - ... but let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. For after this manner in the old time the holy women also, who trusted in God, adorned themselves...
Seite 177 - There is no fear in love ; but perfect love casteth out fear : because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
Seite 154 - I, been born in a stable, or been a runner at a sponging-house, we should have thought him a genius, and wished he had had the advantage of a liberal education, and of being admitted into good company ; but it is beyond my conception, that a man of family, and who had some learning, and who really is a writer, should descend so excessively low in all his pieces.
Seite 154 - Poor Fielding ! I could not help telling his sister, that I was equally surprised at and concerned for his continued lowness.

Seite 55 - I rise about seven, sometimes sooner ; after my private duties, I read or write till nine, then breakfast; work, and converse with my company till about twelve ; then, if the weather permit, walk a mile in the garden ; dress, and read till dinner ; after which, sit and chat till four : from that to the hour of teadrinking, each day, variety of employments. You know what the men say enters with the tea-table ; though I will venture to declare, if mine is not an exception, it is as near one as you...
Seite 117 - I am a very irregular writer: can form no plan; nor write after what I have preconceived. Many of my friends wonder at this : but so it is. I have not therefore that encouragement to proceed, that those have, who, forming an agreeable plan, write within its circle, and go on step by step with delight, knowing what they drive at.
