Página 10 - For the love of Christ constraineth us ; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead ; and that He died for all, that they who live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto Him who died for them, and rose again.
Página 23 - Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie : to be laid in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
Página 31 - Like torrent in a stormy day ; He undermines the stately tower, Uproots the tree, and snaps the flower ; And sweeps from our distracted breast The friends that loved— the friends that blest : And leaves us weeping on the shore, To which they can return no more.
