Page 242 - Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice : and be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Page 461 - Tell me not of rights — talk not of the property of the planter in his slaves. I deny the right — I acknowledge not the property.

Page 147 - His integrity was most pure, his justice the most inflexible I have ever known, no motives of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or hatred, being able to bias his decision. He was, indeed, in every sense of the words, a wise, a good, and a great man.
Page 430 - An hour of solitude passed in sincere and earnest prayer, or the conflict with, and conquest over a single passion or ' subtle bosom sin,' will teach us more of thought, will more effectually awaken the faculty, and form the habit, of reflection, than a year's study in the Schools without them.
