Sida 128 - Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick ; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Sida 128 - Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles ? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit ; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.
Sida 7 - ... at something beyond this world. How one of his order came by it, Heaven above, who let it fall upon a monk's shoulders, best knows ; but it would have suited a Brahmin, and, had I met it upon the plains of Indostan, I had reverenced it.
Sida 128 - Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out and trodden under foot of men.

Sida 7 - ... of it — might be about seventy; but from his eyes, and that sort of fire which was in them — which seemed more tempered by courtesy than years — could be no more than sixty. Truth might lie between — He was certainly sixty-five; and the general air of his countenance— notwithstanding something seemed to have been planting wrinkles in it before their time — agreed to the account.
Sida 7 - The rest of his outline may be given in a few strokes; one might put it into the hands of any one to design ; for it was neither elegant nor otherwise, but as character and expression made it so.
Sida 7 - The monk, as I judged from the break in his tonsure (a few scattered white hairs upon his temples being all that remained of it), might be about seventy; but from his eyes, and that sort of fire which was in them, which seemed more tempered by courtesy than years, could be no more than sixty...
Sida 129 - And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it.
