Sidan 59 - The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox : and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the LORD.
Sidan 101 - ... and proposed to herself another, perhaps a more considerable one in her ideas, that of directing a young mind, and of bringing into the right way one who greatly needed it ; for, from the first moment she had heard Lucia mentioned, she became instantly persuaded, that, in a young girl who could have promised herself to a scoundrel, a villain, in short, a scape-gallows, there must be some fault, some hidden wickedness lurking within : Tell me what company you keep, and I'll tell you what you are.
Sidan 232 - ... summons. He stood at some distance from the bed, gazed attentively at his master, and was at once convinced of what he had conjectured the night before. 'Griso!' said Don Rodrigo, with difficulty, raising himself, and sitting up in his bed, 'you have always been my trusty servant.
Sidan 62 - His long, grey beard covering his cheeks and chin, contrasted markedly with the prominent features of the upper part of his face, to which a long and habitual abstinence had rather given an air of gravity, than effaced the natural expression. His sunken eyes, usually bent on the ground, sometimes brightened up with a momentary fire, like two spirited horses, under the hand of a driver whom they know by experience they cannot overcome; yet occasionally they indulge in a few gambols and prancings,...
Sidan 146 - Farewell! native cottage, where, indulging in unconscious thought, one learnt to distinguish from the noise of common footsteps, the approach of a tread expected with mysterious timidity! Farewell! thou cottage, still a stranger, but so often hastily glanced at, not without a blush, in passing, in which the mind took delight to figure to itself the tranquil and lasting home of a wife! Farewell! my church, where the heart was so often soothed while chanting the praises of the Lord; where the preparatory...
Sidan 128 - Tonio, and at his side Gervase, placed themselves standing before the table in such a manner as to conceal the door from the view of the writer, and began to shuffle their feet about on the floor, as if in mere idleness, but in reality as a signal to those without to enter, and at the same time to drown the noise of their footsteps. Don Abbondio, intent upon his writing, noticed nothing else. At the noise of their feet, Renzo took Lucia's arm, pressing it in an encouraging...
Sidan 50 - Certainly, it conveys to me a reproof," replied the Archbishop, " for allowing you to be beforehand with me, when so often, and for so long a time, I might and ought to have come to you myself.
Sidan 304 - You will pray for him ! Don't be weary of doing so. And you will pray also for me ! . . . . My children ! I wish you to have a remembrance of the poor friar." And he drew out of his basket a little box of some common kind of wood, but turned and polished with a certain Capuchin precision, and continued ; " Within this is the remainder of that loaf .... the first I asked for charity ; that loaf, of which you must have heard speak ! I leave it to you : take care of it ; show it to your children !...
Sidan 129 - Tonio was crawling on his knees, and feeling with his hands on the ground to recover his lost receipt. The terrified Gervase was crying and jumping about, and seeking for the door of the stairs, so as to make his escape in safety. In the midst of this uproar, we cannot but stop a moment to make a reflection. Renzo, who was causing disturbance at night in another person's house, who had effected an entrance by stealth, and who had blockaded the master himself in one of his own rooms, has all the appearance...
Sidan 160 - ... displayed in contempt, rudeness, and sarcastic speeches ; while, sometimes, the conformity of her inclinations and hopes with theirs, suppressed her spite, and created in her an apparent and transient friendship.
