Página 698 - No one who has ever known what it is thus to lose faith in a fellow-man whom he has profoundly loved and reverenced will lightly say that the shock can leave the faith in the Invisible Goodness unshaken.

But my wife standing near her with two or three black patches on, and well dressed, did seem to me much handsomer than she.
Página 166 - And you think nothing of the sorrow and the wrong that are within the walls of the city where you dwell : you would leave your place empty, when it ought to be filled with your pity and your labour. If there is wickedness in the streets, your steps should shine with the light of purity ; if there is a cry of anguish, you, my daughter, because you know the meaning of the cry, should be there to still it. My beloved daughter, sorrow has come to teach you a new worship : the sign of it hangs before...
Página 778 - She never, indeed, expresses herself without grace and intelligence ; but her words, when she speaks of the life and appearances of nature, are in general but intellectual signs ; they are not like her brother's — symbols equivalent with the thing symbolised. They bring the notion of the thing described to the mind, they do not bring the feeling of it to the imagination. Writing from the Nivernais, that region of vast woodlands in the centre of France :
Página 145 - In old days he had known Pausanias familiarly ; yet an hour or two ago he had been looking hopelessly at that page, and it had suggested no more meaning to him than if the letters had been black weather-marks on a wall ; but at this moment they were once more the magic signs that conjure up a world.
