Página 123 - Lord I am coming as fast as I can ; I know I must pass through the shadow of death before I can come to see thee ; but it is but umbra mortis, a mere shadow of death, a little darkness upon nature ; but thou by thy merits and passion hast broke through the jaws of death.
Página 316 - Princes are like to heavenly bodies, which cause good or evil times'; and which have much veneration, but no rest. All precepts concerning kings are in effect comprehended in those two remembrances, " memento quod es homo ;" and " memento quod es Deus, or vice Dei;" the one bridleth their power, and the other their will.
Página 356 - This is a work that must make its way into a permanent place in our literature. The quaintness of its language, the touching simplicity of its descriptions and dialogues, and the reverential spirit of love which breathes through it, will insure it a welcome reception amongst all readers of refined taste and discernment.
Página 353 - Africa," in the years 1834, 1835, and 1836, with Letterpress Descriptions, and a Summary of African Zoology. By ANDREW SMITH, MD, Surgeon to the Forces, and Director of the Expedition.
