The women, whose beauty, and sweetness, and dignity, and high accomplishment, and grace, make us understand the Greek mythology, and weaken our desire to have some glimpse of the most famous women of his- tory. The " best society " is that in which the virtues are the most shining, which is the most charitable, forgiving, long-suffering, modest, and innocent.
The "best society " is, by its very name, that in which there is the least hypoc- risy and insincerity of all kinds, which recoils from, and blasts, artificiality, which is anxious to be all that it is pos- sible to be, and which sternly reprobates all shallow pretence, all coxcombery and foppery and insists upon simplicity as the infallible characteristic of true worth.
That is the " best society " which comprises the best men and women. You are seeking some good other than the law you are bound to obey. But how will you find good? It is not a thing of choice : it is a river that flows from the foot of the Invisible Throne, and flows by the path of obedience.
I say again, man cannot choose his duties. You may choose to forsake your duties, and choose not to have the sorrow they bring. But you will go forth ; and what will you find, my daughter? Sorrow without duty bitter herbs, and no bread with them. The Mahomets, the Carlyles, the George Eliots, need their Cadijahs, but not so much, I would say, as do the people with whom we come in contact every day, in common ways and common places.
I deem it true that deeper than the craving for health, or wealth, or love, is the craving for recognition, the deep desire to be known for what we truly are ; to hear from some human lips our rightful name If you miss health, miss wealth, lose Irving Mills And His Swyngphonic Orchestra - Merry Widow On A Spree / Dear, Dear, What Can The Matte lack love, may you not miss the gift from another of divining faith in you ; this faith which is, as is all faith, the gift of God.
The name of every Cadijah is also Theodora. Live for something. Do good and leave behind you a monument of virtue that the storm of time can never destroy. Write your name in kindness, love, and mercy on the hearts of thousands you come in contact with, year by year: you will never be forgotten. Good deeds will shine as the stars of heaven. There is nothing no, nothing innocent or good that dies and is forgotten ; let us hold to that faith or none.
An infant, a prattling child, dying in the cradle will live again in the better thoughts of those that loved it, and play its part through them in redeeming actions of the world, though its body be burnt to ashes, or drowned in the deep sea - DICKENS. Whatever it be that keeps the finer faculties of the mind awake, wonder alive, and the interest above mere eating and drinking, money-making and money-saving ; whatever it be Villanelle - Sergio Bruni - Vol.2 Napule E Na Canzone (Vinyl, LP, Album) gives gladness, or sorrow, or hope, this, be it violin, pencil, pen, or, highest of all, the love of woman, is simply a divine gift of holy influence for the salvation of that being to whom it comes, for the lifting of him out of the mire and upon the rock.
For it keeps a way open for the entrance of deeper, holier, grander in- fluences emanating from the same riches of the Godhead. Christmas All Over The World - Various - Bullseyes Compact Christmas 2000 (CD), who that day having wearied her selfe with reading. And if at any time shee put her mouth to bite it off, it seemed, that where she had beene long in making of a rose with her hands, she would in an instant make roses with her lips; -as the lillies seemed to haue their whitenesse rather of the hand that made them, than of the matter whereof they were made ; that they grew there by the suns of her eyes, and were refreshed by the most.
Be but faithful, that is all. When Douglas was carrying the heart of Bruce in the silver case, to bury it in the Holy Land, he was attacked by a body of Turks, and finding the result somewhat doubtful he took the silver case and flung it among the ranks of the enemy, saying, " O brave heart of Bruce!
Expression is the loftiest and the final charm in every human face. While it is right, indeed a heavenly intuition, to desire beauty, and while attention to the laws of hygiene, good taste, and good behavior mightily con- duce to it, heavenly thoughts are the only sure rceipe for a countenance of heavenly expression.
Cecilia heard the music of the upper courts, and hence her face mirrors its ethereal loveliness. It is not only true that prayer will cause a man to cease from sinning, even as sin will cause a man to cease from prayer, but" it is also true that no heart can be lifted up toward God as a lily lifts its chalice to the sun, without the face beaming with a light which never shone on sea or shore, but which reflects the shekinah of the upper sanctuary.
The tendency to persevere, to persist in spite of hindrances, discouragements, and impossibilities it is this that in all things distinguishes the strong soul from the weak. Near the close of the Middle Ages there lived in Spain a girl whose persistent efforts after reforms in the Catho- lic religion, and whose endeavors after a pure and conse- crated life, made people call her in after-times " Saint Theresa.
When founding the Carmelite Convent of Toledo, she was taunted with the harsh fact that she had only four ducats to begin her work of mercy. But she replied to the reproach by saying, " Theresa and this money are indeed nothing ; but God and Theresa and four ducats can accomplish anything. The want of occupation is no less the plague of society than of solitude. You just take hold of something and try.
You'll find there's always a working alongside. Put up your sails and the wind will fill 'em. Absorbing occupation was with Mme. But our school-girl is largely occupied with becom- ing " a young lady. Very likely treasures of flowers, rare plants, minerals, birds, and beautiful landscape views, illustrating the sciences and literature she is industriously studying in-doors, lie all about her, among the hills and woods, within walking dis- tance.
But she is none the richer. She and a friend, arm in arm, frequently " promenade ; " she stands about in groups, she returns calls, she goes shopping, she wears high French heels, and wears them, too, as nearly as may be, under her insteps. She has been known to visit the chiropodist.
MARY J. If you are to see clearly all your life, you must not sacrifice eyesight by over-straining it; and the same law of moderation is the condition of preserving every other faculty. I want you to know the exquisite taste of common dry bread; to enjoy the perfume of a larch wood at a dis- tance ; to feel delight when a sea-wave dashes over you.
I want your eye to be so sensitive that it shall discern the faintest tones of a gray cloud, and yet so strong that it shall bear to gaze on a white one in the dazzling glory of sunshine. I would have your hearing sharp enough to de- tect the music of the spheres, if it were but audible, and yet your nervous system robust enough to endure the shock of the guns on an ironclad. Nearer and ever nearer Drawing with every day! But a little longer to wait and watch 'Neath skies so cold and gray ; And hushed is the roar of the bitter north Before the might of the spring, And up the frozen slope of the world Climbs Summer, triumphing.
If books cost in proportion to their grade or value, or if the higher levels of composition and creation were, of necessity, so written that they could be understood only by severe application, like that of learning a foreign language, or the higher mathematics, how would society be affected with a fresh and worthy sense of the privilege of books and reading!
If only the aristocracy of wealth could buy Dante and the Waverley Novels, and the literature of the age of Elizabeth, or could read of Copernicus, or Her- schell's astromony, or could own the Prophets and the four Gospels! No, we do not say the empire of letters, the kingdom of letters, the aristocracy or oligarchy of letters, but the republic of letters.
I know the Miss Osbornes were excellent critics of a cashmere shawl, or a pink satin slip ; and when Miss Turner had hers dyed purple, and made into a spencer ; and when Miss Pickford had her ermine tippet twisted into a muff and trimmings, I warrant you the changes did not escape the two intelligent young women before men- tioned.
But there are things, look you, of a finer texture than fur or satin, and all Solomon's glories, and all the wardrobe of the Queen of Sheba; things whereof the beauty escapes the eye of many connoisseurs. And there are sweet modest little souls on which you light, fragrant Purple Eternity - I Died - Purple (CDr) blooming tenderly in quiet shady places ; and there are garden-ornaments, as big as brass warming-pans, that are fit to stare the sun itself out of countenance.
In very truth, Mary Marston was already immeasur- ably more of a lady than Hesper Mortimer was ever likely to be in this world. What was the stateliness and pride of the one compared to the fact that the other would have died in the work-house or on the street rather than let a man she did not love embrace her.
To be a martyr to a He is but false ladyhood. There was nothing striking about her; she made no such sharp impression on the mind as compelled one to think of her again ; yet always, when one had been long enough in her company to feel the charm of her individuality, the very quiet of any quiet moment was enough to bring back the sweetness of Mary's twilight presence. For this girl, who spent her days be- hind a counter, was one of the spiritual forces at work for the conservation and recovery of the universe.
I should have a small book-case, just one shelf, and on it I should arrange the biographies of those women who represent the best lives in all positions and callings. I should select not perfect women they cannot be found but I should choose such as have been ideally brave, faithful, industrious and true to the duty which lay closest to them.
I should want them to represent what woman has done in religion, literature, science, art, history, as well as in domestic industries, in philanthropy and in the home. But, mind you, girls, I should not always prefer the lives of those women about whose feet the world has cast the most crowns. That which is ideally beautiful or strong in men and women imparts courage to us who learn about them ; but there are brave and gentle lives, surrounded by debasing circumstances, which the world only too rarely exhalts.
Patience and struggle. An earnest use of what we have now, and, all the time, an earnest discontent until we come to what we ought to be. Are not these what we need? What, in their rich union, we could not get, except in just such a life as this with its delayed completions? Jesus does not blame Peter when he impetuously begs that he may follow Him now.
He bids him wait and he shall follow Him some day. But we can see that the value of his waiting lies in the certainty that he shall follow, and the value of his following, when it comes, will lie in the fact that he has waited.
So, if we take all Christ's culture, we are sure that our life on earth may get already the inspiration of the heaven for which we are training, and our life in heaven may keep forever the blessing of the earth in which we were trained. She looks through life, and with a balance just Weighs men and things, beholding as they are The lives of others : in the common dust She finds the fragments of the ruined star : Proud, with a pride all feminine and sweet, No path can soil the whiteness of her feet.
The steady candor of her gentle eyes, Strikes dead deceit, laughs vanity away; She hath no room for petty jealousies, Where Faith and Love divide their tender sway. Of either sex she owns the nobler part : Man's honest brow and woman's faithful heart. Shall it take less time to make a woman than to make a world?
Is not the woman the greater? She may have her ages of chaos, her centuries of crawling slime, yet rise a woman at last. Not to the shorn lamb alone, always are sharp winds beneficently tempered. There is mercy, also, to the mis- First 5 Thru - First 5 Thru (Vinyl) wolf. What's done we partly may compute, But know not what's resisted. Yet to the worst despair that comes through sin God's light shall reach at last.
Perhaps I have erred in this. But I should be grieved to see her losing unconsciousness and fearlessness. She has never learned to be afraid. I should be pained if she should begin to think much about evil, even for the purpose of avoiding it. I have always had the idea, that, although I myself, as a girl, was far from a headstrong, impetuous, brilliant character, had anyone said to me, 4 Young girl, here is a pleasant garden, where you may play, and here is a great, mysterious wall, with something highly interesting beyond, which you must not see or think about making daisy-chains would have palled upon me at last ; and, though I might not have actually ventured on the forbidden ground, I am very sure I should at least have found a ladder, climbed up, and peeped over the wall to my heart's content.
Work, then, girls! Work for pleasure, work for profit! Work for the health of your bodies, and the health of your souls! Go slowly, remembering the necessity for thor- oughness and for bringing your strongest action to bear upon the important points. There is such an expression used as "society man- ners. No pun ever came into Phebe's head too bright to be flashed over Alice, and Alice had no gentle- ness for strangers which she withheld from Phebe.
The perfect gentlewomen which they were in the parlor, they were always, under every circumstance. There was not a servant in the house, who, in his or her place, was not treated with as absolute a politeness as a guest in the par- lor. This spirit of perfect breeding penetrated every word and act of the household. What Alice and Phebe Gary were in their drawing-room, they were always in the abso- lute privacy of their lives.
To sleep well is one of your duties. Do not culti- vate, The House Of God (Satans Sacrificial Terror Edits) - D.H.S.* - The House Of God (The US Remixes) (Vi not permit, any of the sentimental nonsense which speaks as if sleep were a matter of chance, or were out of your control.
You must sleep well, if you mean to do the rest well. You must have body and mind in EXhale working order ; and they will not be in good working order, unless you sleep regularly, steadily, and enough.
Do not place any confidence in the old laws which limit the amount of Jordan (53) - No Love Lust (File, MP3). There are such old lines as " six hours sleep for a maid, and seven hours sleep for a man.
The rule is correlative to the rule for work. Thomas Drew stated it thus : " You have no right in any day to incur more fatigue than the sleep of the next night will recover from.
Yes, all! The morning and the night, The joy, the grief, the loss, The roughened path, the sunbeam bright, The hourly thorn and cross. And He has loved me! All my heart With answering love is stirred ; And every anguished pain and smart Finds healing in the word.
So here I lay me down to rest, As nightly shadows fall, And lean, confiding, on His breast, Who knows and pities all! At sixteen or eighteen, or perhaps at twenty, a girl can toss a jaunty little felt hat upon her head, pin it in a twinkling above her wayward hair, tie on a bit of blue or red somewhere about her blouse, brush her short walking- skirt into becoming folds, tie up her tennis shoes, and there she is in five minutes, prettier, fresher, more becomingly dressed than all the older women of the household, who have been standing before the mirror trying this effect and that for the last hour.
Ask a girl how she does it, how she manages to make her hat bend down and up, and in and out, in all kinds of alluring ways, and she does not know, it belongs to girls to do such things. Of course it does! Leslie was different, in some things, from the little world of girls about her.
She was like a bit of fresh, springing, delicate vine in a bouquet of bright simi- larly beautiful flowers ; taking little free curves and reaches of her own, just as she had grown ; not tied, nor placed, nor constrained ; never the central or most brilliant thing ; but somehow a kind of life and grace that helped and touched and perfected all.
There was something very real and individual about her ; she was no " girl of the period," made up by the fashion of the day. She would have grown just as a rose or a violet would, the same in the first quarter of the cen- tury or the third. They called her " grandmotherly " sometimes, when a certain quaint primitiveness that was in her showed itself.
And yet she was the youngest girl in all that set, as to simpleness and freshness and unpre- tendingness, though she was in her twentieth year now, which sounds so very old! Adelaide Marchbanks used to say of her that she " stayed fifteen. So I am content to tell my simple story, without trying to make things seem better than they were ; dread- ing nothing, indeed, but falsity, which, in spite of one's best efforts, there is reason to dread.
Falsehood is so easy, truth so difficult. Examine your words well, and you will firid that even when you have no motive to be false, it is a very hard thing to say the exact truth, even about your own immediate feelings, much harder than to say something fine about them which is not the exact truth.
Great men and great causes have always some helper of whom the outside world knows but little. Some- times these helpers have been men, sometimes they have been women, who have given themselves to help and strengthen those called upon to be leaders and workers, in- spiring them with courage, keeping faith in their own idea alive, in days of darkness.
Of this noble company of unknown helpers Caroline Herschel was one. She stood beside her brother, William Herschel, sharing his labors, helping his life. She became his assistant in the workshop ; she helped him to grind and polish his mir- rors ; she stood beside his telescope in the nights of mid- winter, to write down his observations, when the very ink was frozen.
She kept him alive by her care; thinking nothing of herself, she lived for him. She loved him, be- lieved in him, and helped him, with all her heart and with all her strength. It was a lovely day.
The sun shone so warm that you could not help thinking of what he would be able to do before long draw primroses and buttercups out of the earth by force of sweet persuasive influences. But in the shadows lay fine webs and laces of ice, so delicately lovely that one could not but be glad of the cold that made the Christmas All Over The World - Various - Bullseyes Compact Christmas 2000 (CD) able to please itself by taking such graceful forms. And I wondered over again for the hundredth time, what could be the principle which, in the wildest, most lawless, fantastically chaotic, apparently capricious work of nature, always kept it beautiful.
The beauty of holiness must be at the heart of it somehow, I thought. Keep that in mind. Still I rather you would give candies the go-by along with the peppers and limes, and get your positive sweets and sours from fruits.
Let an orange before breakfast be your only between-meal in- dulgence. When once you have gained an appetite for healthy foods, the idea of food between meals will be actually repugnant to you.
And don't you know that your stomach is bound to take hold of food and try to digest it just as soon and just as often as any is offered it? You will feel very different then from head to foot when your stomach is allowed its rightful and regular rests. This precaution alone will help you to a good appetite in time.
You may be poor ; you may lead lives of struggle ; your occupations may run counter to many of the natural delights of youth ; you may see no relief, no outlook to a tedious and dull routine.
Well, bear it all, and bate no jot of heart or hope ; for, in spite of it all, you need never fail. Be good and do good, and you will have won something better than a fortune or a coronet.
To do this may not save you from abuse, or opposition, or earthly loss ; but if this and a thousand other calamities come upon you, you will be at the promontory, at whose base the tide-waves break in vain.
Look, I say, at the cross of Christ, and study all that it means, and you will understand the mean- ing of your life. Courtesy in the mistress of a house consists in feeding conversation, never in usurping it.
She is the guardian of this species of sacred fire, but it must be accessible to all. The innocent and kindly little arts that make some peo- ple as useful and beloved as good fairy MR 1470 - Fish - Suits (CD, Album) were once upon a time. Fuller says, that " William, Earl of Nassau, won a sub- ject from the King of Spain, every time he put off his hat.
That's what I like in them enthusiasm. The sad thing is that it oozes out when they become women. It makes them seem triv- ial. So, I say, girls, carry your enthusiasm into every Various - Renegade Rollers Volume 5 (Vinyl) of them, no matter if you never rise to distinction. Nothing is so contagious as enthusiasm ; it is the real allegory of the tale of Orpheus it moves stones, it charms brutes.
Enthusiasm is the genius of sincerity, and truth accomplishes no victories without it. Books give to all who will faithfully use them, the society and the presence of the best and greatest of our race. No matter how poor I am; no matter though the prosperous of my own time will not enter my obscure dwelling, if learned men and poets will enter and take up their abode under my roof, if Milton will cross my threshold and sing to me of Paradise ; and Shakespeare open to me the world of imagination and the workings of the human heart; and Franklin enrich me with his practi- cal wisdom, I shall not pine for want of intellectual companionship, and I may become a cultivated man, though excluded from what is called the best society in the place where I live.
Nothing can supply the place of books. You never miss an opportunity of giving innocent pleas- ure, or helping another soul on the path to God, but you are taking away from yourselves forever what might have been a happy memory, and leaving in its place pain or remorse.
Every individual has a place in the world, and is im- portant in some respect, whether he chooses to be so or not. Everybody has a way of living ; if you can get into it, everyone is as good as a story. I confess that the evening talk over the dessert at dinner is much more entertaining and piquant than the morning paper, and often as important.
There is no en- tertainment so full of quiet pleasure as the hearing a lady of culture and refinement relate her day's experience in her daily round of calls, charitable visits, shopping, errands of relief and condolence. I don't mean gossip, by any means, or scandal. A woman of culture skims over that like a bird, never touching it with the tip of a wing.
What she brings home is the freshness and brightness of life. She touches everything so daintily, she hits off a character in a sentence, she gives the pith of a dialogue without tedious- ness, she mimics without vulgarity ; her narration sparkles but it doesn't sting. The picture of her day is full of vi- vacity, and it gives new value and freshness to common things. The commonplace sun in the commonplace sky Makes up the commonplace day. The moon and the stars are commonplace things, And the flower that blooms and the bird that sings, Yet dark were the world and sad our lot, If the flower failed, or the sun shone not ; And God who studies each separate soul, Out of commonplace lives makes his beautiful whole.
Nor knowest thou what argument Thy life to thy neighbor's creed has lent. All are needed by each one ; Nothing is fair or good alone. Reverence the highest, have patience with the low- est. Let this day's performance of the meanest duty be thy religion. Are the stars too distant, pick up the pebble that lies at thy feet, and from it learn the all.
Let us do our duty in our shop or our kitchen, the mar- ket, the street, the office, the school, the home, just as faithfully as if we stood in the first rank of some great battle, and we knew that victory for mankind depended upon our bravery, strength and skill.
Faithfulness in little things fits one for heroism when the great trials come. If you want to know people you must get near them ; first get down to their level, and then bring them up to yours, not waiting for any great occasion, or a more direct revelation, but taking advantage of small opportu- nities, and making your influence felt in quiet, unobtrusive ways.
There is always some one to smile at, somebody to give your chair to, somebody to whom a book, a flower, or even an old paper, will be a boon. These small attentions will open the way to confidence, will make it possible that in need these friends will give you opportunities to help them which, unless you had shown thoughtfulness and regard for them, they could never have done.
A quiet, sympa- thetic look or smile many a time unbars a heart that needs help which you can give. Every considerate word we utter concerning those about us ; every time we give them the benefit of a doubt in our judgment of their motive ; every time we take occa- sion to couple with our demurrer from their position some saving clause of appreciation, we are habituating ourselves to Mop Mop - Kiss Of Kali (CD, Album) charity which " suffereth long and is kind.
If a good face is a letter of recommendation, a good heart is a letter of credit. Keep thyself simple, good, pure, kind, and affectionate. Make thyself all simplicity. Why does the moaning of the storm give me pleas- ure? Methinks because it puts to rout the trivialness of our fair-weather life, and gives it, at least, a tragic interest.
The sound has the effect of a pleasing challenge to call forth our energy to resist the invaders of our life's territory. It is as musical and thrilling as the sound of an enemy's bugle. Our spirits revive like lichens in a storm.
There is something worth living for when we are resisted, threat- ened. If it were not for physical cold how should we have discovered the warmth of the affections?
I some- times feel that I need to sit in a far-away cave through a three weeks' storm, cold and wet, to give a tone to my system. The spring has its windy March to usher it in, with many soaking rains reaching into April.
The jewel of innocence is more than a crown. Yes, I believe in ideals. Some of us will owe our suc- cess, our worth to them. I would not have Joan of Arc's life-story changed in the least, and I hope historians will never become so critical as to erase her name from the books as they have William Tell's. But I believe this, too, that, among our friends, ideals which grow upon us are far sweeter and more helpful than those recommended by a first glance.
I believe that a girl ought to pass quickly through a state of infatuation, blind adoration of a mortal, that she ought to allow some Hard Headed Woman - Cat Stevens - Greatest Hits (Vinyl, LP) for faults, and some room for loving others too, then she will save herself from future disgust and make raillery against the friend- ships of girls cease.
It comes far easier to scold our friend in an angry moment than to say how much we love, honor, and esteem him in a kindly mood. Wrath and bitterness speak them- selves and go with their own force ; love is shamefaced, looks shyly out of the window, lingers long at the door latch.
I hate is said loud and with all our force. In an angry mood we do an injury to a loving heart with good, strong, free emphasis ; but we stammer and hang back when our diviner nature tells us to confess and ask pardon. Even when our heart is broken with repent- ance, we haggle and linger long before we can Throw away the worser part.
Her air, her smile, her motions, told Of womanly completeness ; A music as of household songs Was in her voice of sweetness. Not beautiful in curve and line, But something more and better, The secret charm eluding art, Its spirit, not its letter ; An inborn grace that nothing lacked Of culture or appliance, The warmth of genial courtesy, The calm of self-reliance. It's good to put a bother away over night.
It all straightens out in the morning. The best thing to take people out of their own worries is to go to work and find High Heels And Lowlifes how other folks' worries are getting on. It will all come out somehow. It has got to, you know. Things always do, they can't stay up in arms.
Look on other lives beside your own ; see what their troubles are, and how they are borne. One cowslip, though it shows the yellow, is not fairly out, but will be by to-morrow. How they improve their time. Not a moment of sunshine is lost. One thing I may depend on, there has been no idling with the flowers. Nature loses not a moment, takes no vacation.
They advance as steadily as a clock. These plants now protected by the water, are just peeping forth. I should not be sur- prised to find that they drew in their heads in a frosty night. The year's at the spring, And day's at the morn ; Morning's at seven ; The hill-side's dew-pearled ; The lark's on the wing ; The snail's on the thorn ; God's in His heaven All's right with the This Time I Know Its For Real. It is just as bad, when you are talking to another girl, or another girl's mother, if you take to watching her hair, or the way she trimmed her frock, instead of watching what she is saying as if that were really what you and she are talking for.
I could name to you young women who seem to go into society for the purpose of studying the milliner's business. It is a very good business, and a very proper business to study in the right place.
I know some very good girls who would be much improved, and whose husbands would be a great deal happier, if they would study it to more purpose than they do. But do not study it while you are talking. No, not if the Empress Eu- genie herself should be talking to you.
If Christ had to be made perfect by sufferings, much more must we. If he needed to learn obedience by sorrow, much more must we.
If he needed, in the days of his flesh, to make supplication to God his Father with strong crying and tears, so do we. And if he was heard in that he feared, so I trust, we shall be heard likewise. If he needed to taste even the most horrible misery of all ; to feel for a moment that God had forsaken him ; surely we must expect, if we are to be made like him, to have to drink at least one drop out of his bitter cup.
It is very wonderful : but yet it is full of hope and comfort, to be Parry*, The London Philharmonic*, Matthias Bamert - Complete Symphonies (CD), in our darkest and bitterest sorrow, to look up to heaven and say, " At least there is one who has been through all this.
Sorrow is often misquoted. It is only one step in a long journey, one stage in a long growth. Take good heed now, my dear sisters ; these three Marys denote three bitternesses, as the name signifieth. The first bitterness is remorse and making amends for sin, and this is the first Mary, Mary Magdalene, for she in great bitterness of heart left off her sins and turned to our Lord.
The second bitterness is in wrestling and struggling against temptation, and this is that other Mary, the mother of Jacob, which meaneth wrestling. This wrestling is very bitter to many who are well ad- vanced in the way to heaven, for they still waver in tempt- ation. And the third bitterness consists in longing for heaven and weariness of this world, when one is of such piety that his heart is at rest with the war of vice, and is as it were in the gates of heaven, where all worldly things seem bitter to him.
And this bitterness is to be under- stood by the third Mary, Mary Salome, which signifieth peace. Soeur Marie bent her head over her book as she read. All her thoughts were there. Bitterness buyeth it, for, as the Gospel saith, these three Marys brought sweet-smelling spices to anoint our Lord. By spices, which are sweet, is to be understood the sweetness of a devout heart.
These three Marys buy it, that is, through bitterness we arrive at sweetness. So saith God's dear spouse, I will go to the hill of frankin- cense by the mountain of myrrh. Observe : which is the way to the sweetness of frankincense? By the myrrh of bitterness. The best sort of bravery, the courage to do right. Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspira- tions.
I cannot reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.
O power to do! O baffled will! O prayer and action! And having done all, to stand. Stand, therefore. Nature is so modest! But once set her talk- ing, she will forget your presence, and babble like the brook. How much she has told the poets, and the men of science! How much she will tell you, too, if you but heed her! Ah, girls, what slight attention we have, in reality, shown to Nature! We treat her more like a servant than a friend and companion.
The desire for excitement has turned our minds to vainer subjects. The struggles which our elders have made for money and position have deprived them of chances for regarding natural objects. However deplorable this may be, it is a still more lamentable fact, that you, dear girls, give so little heed to Nature, you who have time and to spare.
It lies with you to cultivate this love for the natural world, that future generations may be more mindful of it. Beauty of achievement, whether in overcoming a hasty temper, a habit of exaggeration, in exploring a con- tinent with Stanley, or guiding well the ship of state with Gladstone, is always fascinating, and whether known in a circle large as the equator or only in the family circle at home, those who are in this fashion beautiful are never desolate, and some one always loves them.
Beauty of reputation is a mantle of spotless ermine in which if you are but enwrapped you shall receive the homage of those about you, as real, as ready, and as spontaneous as any ever paid to personal beauty in its most powerful hour.
Some sort of reputation you must have, whether you will or no. In school, in church, at home, and in society, you carry ever with you the wings of a good, or the ball and chain of a bad reputation. Resolve to make it beautiful, clean, shining, gracious. Read first the one or two great standard works in each department of literature.
Confine, then, your reading to that department which suits the particular bent of your minds. Before you begin to peruse a book, know something about the author. Read the preface carefully. Take a comprehensive survey of the table of con- tents. Give your whole attention to whatever you read. Be sure to note the most valuable passages. Write out, in your own language, a summary of the facts you have noted.
Apply the results of your reading to your every-day duties. Observe, only observe! Look around you! There is such an infinite num- ber of objects to consider right about your own porch-door, the lichens on the door-stone, the apple-tree shading the path, the striped pebble that you kick aside, the plant pressing up between the boards, the dew shimmering on the weed.
Investigate all your surroundings, especially the small, neglected places, and try to have an opinion about what you observe. Do not think of yourselves as living in rooms and houses, but as living in the house, the palace of the earth and sky, whose every gallery, corridor and hall, is carpeted with Nature's tapestries of unfading color and deep softness ; whose walls are hung with glow- ing sunsets ; and whose roof is lighted with windows of blue sky.
It taints their love and their friendship. They take up small causes of offence. They expect their friends to show the same aspect to them at all times, which is more than human nature can do. They try experiments to ascertain whether they are sufficiently loved ; they watch narrowly the effects of Van Den Budenmayer - Funeral Music (Organ) - Zbigniew Preisner - Trois Couleurs Bleu (CD, Album), and require their friends to prove to them that the intimacy is exactly upon the same footing as it was before.
Some persons acquire these suspicious ways from a natural diffidence in themselves. With others, these habits arise from a selfishness which cannot be satisfied. And their endeavors should be to uproot such a disposition, not to soothe it. Like a cradle rocking, rocking, Silent, peaceful, to and fro, Like a mother's sweet looks dropping On the little face below, Hangs the green earth, swinging, turning, Jarless, noiseless, safe, and slow ; Falls the light of God's face bending Down and watching us below.
And as feeble babes that suffer, Toss, and cry, and will not rest, Are the ones the tender mother Holds the closest, loves the best, So when we are weak and wretched, By our sins weighed down, distressed, Then it is that God's great patience Holds us closest, loves us best.
In our whole social intercourse with our fellows in the family, the home, in society, and in all public work the power of any individual to do good must depend al- most measure for measure on the extent of that individual's power of sympathy, the wideness and the warmth of his heart. The power of thinking, the capacity of his head, is but a secondary matter.
Never think you who are young and glorying, perhaps, in the grand new fields of intellectual culture opened before you that the intellect is nobler than the heart, that knowledge is greater than love. Not so! A thousand times no! It is here, in the faculty of noble, disinterested, unselfish love, that lies the true gift and power of our womanhood. When I see a ruddy, romping school-girl in her first long dress, beginning to avoid coasting on her double-run- ner, or afraid of the stone walls in the blueberry-fields, or standing aloof from the game of base-ball, or turning sadly away from the ladder which her brother is climbing to the cherry-tree, or lingering for him to assist her over the gunwale of a boat ; when I read of the sinking of steamers at sea, with " nearly all the women and children on board," and the accompanying comments, " Every effort was made to assist the women up the masts and out of danger till help arrived, but they could not climb, and we were forced to leave them to their fate " when I consider these things, I feel that I have ceased to deal with blunders in dress, and have entered the category of crimes.
I do not think I exaggerate the importance or the charms of pedestrianism, or our need as a people to culti- vate the art. I think it would tend to soften the national manners, to teach us the meaning of leisure, to acquaint us with the charms of the open air, to strengthen and Christmas All Over The World - Various - Bullseyes Compact Christmas 2000 (CD) the tie between the race and the land.
The roads and paths you have walked along in summer and winter weather, the fields and hills which you have looked upon in lightness and gladness of heart, when fresh thoughts have come into your mind, or some noble prospect has opened before you, and especially the quiet ways where you have walked in sweet converse with your friend, paus- ing under the trees, drinking at the spring henceforth they are not the same; a new charm is added; those thoughts spring there perennial, your friend walks there forever.
It is only a poor sort of happiness that could ever come by caring very much about our own narrow pleasures. We can only have the highest happiness, by having wide thoughts, and much feeling for the rest of the world as well Area - Radius* - Radius (CD, Album) ourselves ; and this sort of happiness often brings so much pain with it, that we can only tell it from pain by its being what we would choose before everything else, because our souls see it is good.
There are so many things wrong and difficult in the world, that no man can be great unless he gives up thinking much about pleasure or rewards, and gets strength to endure what is hard and painful. And so, my Lillo, if you mean to act nobly and seek to know the best things God has put within reach of men, you must learn to fix your mind on that end, and not on what will happen to you because of it. Truth before all things ; sincerity before all things : pure, clear, diamond-bright sincerity is of more value than the gold of Ophir ; the foundation of all love must rest here.
If I once know that my wife or my friend will tell me only what she thinks will be agreeable to me, then I am at once lost, my way is a path- less quicksand. But all this being promised, I still say that we Anglo-Saxons might improve our domestic life, if we would graft upon the strong stock of its homely sincer- ity the courteous graces of the French character. Girls and boys have too slight an appreciation of manual labor.
In most ways, work with the hands is more necessary than mental labor. God made man work in a garden before he gave him power to write books or keep accounts. Fine white hands are very pretty when they be- long to a lady ; but sunburnt, muscular ones are beautiful too, in a vineyard. May I warn you not to despise the small amount of work you can accomplish, as compared with what others are able to do? Let me remind you, too, that it is not so much what we get in money, buildings, knowledge, reputa- tion, influence, by means of work, as what labor does for ourselves, our characters that is valuable to us.
Carlyle expressed the idea in Talk To Me - Frank Sinatra - All The Way (Vinyl, LP) very short sentence, " Not what I have, but what I do, is my kingdom. This intense tenderness, this yearning over every- thing human, with a pity and love inexpressible, made the very impulse and essence of her being.
Surely in this she was Christlike. Our Saviour wept over Jerusalem. How many tears did she, his disciple, shed for sorrowing human- ity, for suffering womanhood. Nor were tears all she gave. The deepest longing of her life was to see human nature lifted from sin to holiness, Christmas All Over The World - Various - Bullseyes Compact Christmas 2000 (CD), from misery to happiness ; every thought that she uttered, every deed she did, she prayed might help toward this end.
To help somebody, no matter how lowly, to comfort the afflicted, to lift up the fallen, to share every blessing of her life with others, to live even under the stress of pain and struggle a life pure large, in itself an inspiration this, and more, was Alice Cary. Gather a single blade of grass, and examine for a moment, quietly, its narrow, sword-shaped strip of fluted green. Think of it well, and judge whether, of all the gorgeous flowers that beam in summer air, and of all strong and goodly trees, pleasant to the eyes or good for food, there be any by God more highly graced, by man more deeply loved, than that narrow point of feeble green.
Consider what we owe to the meadow grass, to the cover- ing of the ground by that glorious enamel, by the companies of those soft and countless and peaceful spears. And now, I will give you one lesson to carry home with you a lesson which if we all could really believe and obey, the world would begin to mend from to-morrow, and every other good work on earth would prosper and multiply tenfold, a hundredfold ay, beyond all our fair- est dreams.
And my lesson is this. When you go out from this church into the crowded streets, Prism - m-flo - Come Again / Prism (Vinyl) there is not a soul in them who is not as precious in God's eyes as you are ; not a little Rising Tide I - O Yuki Conjugate - Ambiguism 1983-1987 (Vinyl, LP) ragged child whom Jesus, were he Der Marsch Der Wampelerreiter - Sturmpercht - A Wilde Zeit (CD) on earth, would not take up in his arms and bless, not a publican or a harlot with whom, if they but asked him, he would not eat and drink.
Therefore do to all who are in want of your help as Jesus would do to them if he were here ; as Jesus is doing to them already ; for he is here among us now, and forever seeking and saving that which was lost ; and all we have to do is to believe that, and work on, sure that he is working at our head, and that though we cannot see him, he sees us.
Every evening it was a fresh excitement to watch the lighting of the lamps, and think how far the lighthouse sent its rays, and how many hearts it gladdened with as- surance of safety. As I grew older, I was allowed to kindle the lamps sometimes myself. That was indeed a pleasure. So little a creature as I might do that much for the great world! We waited for the spring with an eager longing ; the advent of the growing grass, the birds and flowers and insect life, the soft skies and softer winds the everlasting beauty of the thousand tender tints that clothed the world, these things brought us unspeakable bliss.
To the heart of Nature one must needs be drawn in such a life; and very soon I learned how richly she repays in deep refreshment the reverent love of her wor- shipper. You should be careful not to intrust another unnec- essarily with a secret which it may be a hard matter for him to keep, and which may expose him to somebody's displeasure, when it is hereafter discovered that he was the object of your confidence.
Your desire for aid, or for sympathy, is not to be indulged by dragging other people into your misfortunes. There is as much responsibility in imparting your own secrets, as in keeping those of your neighbor. Avoid having many confidants. Avoid absorbing and exclusive friendships. They are not wise ; they are selfish, and not of the nature of true friendship.
They commonly breed trouble, and end in quarrel and heart break. The foul toad hath a fair stone in his head ; the fine gold is found in the filthy earth ; the sweet kernel lyeth in the hard shell ; virtue is harbored in the heart of him that most men esteem misshapen.
If we respect more the outward shape than the inward habit, into how many mischiefs do we fall, into what blindness are we led! Do we not commonly see that in painted pots is hidden Brivido (Club Mix) deadliest poison, that in the greenest grass is the greatest serpent?
How frantic are those lovers who are carried away with the gay glistening of the fine face, the beauty whereof is parched with the summer's blaze, and chipped with the winter's blast, which is of so short continuance that it fadeth before one perceives it flourisheth.
Patience, accomplish thy labor; accomplish thy work of affection! Sorrow and Christmas All Over The World - Various - Bullseyes Compact Christmas 2000 (CD) are strong, and patient endurance is godlike. Therefore accomplish thy labor of love, till the heart is made godlike, Purified, strengthened, perfected, and rendered more worthy of heaven. The clear pure light of the morning made me long for the truth in my heart, which alone could make me pure and clear as the morning, tune me up to the concert-pitch of the nature around me.
And the wind that blew from the sunrise made me hope in the God who had first breathed into my nostrils the breath of life ; that He would at length so fill me with His breath, His mind, His spirit, that I should think only His thoughts, and live His I Made It, finding therein my own life, only glorified infinitely.
The face of Nature is the face of God, and must bear expressions that can influence, though unconsciously to them, the most ignorant and hopeless of His children. Maiden, that read'st this simple rhyme, Enjoy thy youth, it will not stay; Enjoy the fragrance of thy prime, For oh, it is not always May! Enjoy the Spring of Love and Youth, To some good angel leave the rest ; For Time will teach thee soon the truth, There are no birds in last year's nest!
I stand in the sunny noon of life. Objects no longer glitter in the dews of morning, neither are yet softened by the shadows of evening. Every spot is seen, every chasm revealed. Climbing the dusty hill, some fair effigies that once stood for human destiny have been broken. Yet enough is left to point distinctly to the glories of that destiny.
Always the soul says to us all, "Cherish your best hopes as a faith, and abide by them in action. Such shall be the effectual, fervent means to their fulfilment. A woman has a personal work and duty, relating to her own home, and a public work and duty, which is also the expansion of that. The woman's work for her own home is to secure its order, comfort, and loveliness.
The woman's duty, as a member of the commonwealth, is to as- sist in the ordering, in the comforting, and in the beautiful adornment of the state. What the woman is to be within her gates, as the centre of order, the balm of distress, and the mirror of beauty ; that she is also to be without her gates, where order is more difficult, distress more immi- nent, and loveliness more rare. O birds through the heaven that soar With such tumult of jubilant song!
The shadows are flying before For the rapture of life is strong. And my spirit leaps to the light On the wings of its hope new born, And I follow your radiant flight Through the golden halls of morn! Yon bells in the steeples, ring, ring out your changes, However so many they be, And let the brown meadow-lark's note as he ranges Come over, come over to me.
I wish, and I wish that the spring would go faster, Nor long summer bide so late ; And I could grow on like the foxglove and aster, For some things are ill to wait. I wait for the day when dear hearts shall discover, While dear hands are laid on my head ; " The child is a woman, the book may close over, For all the lessons are said. Such as I wish it to be. This, then, is the sum of all. Circumstances are not in our power ; virtues are.
It is not in our power to avert the bitter failure which the earth may inflict ; it is in our power to win the high success which God bestows. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger ; but they that seek the Lord shall want no manner of thing ; certainly, which is eternally, infinitely good.
No man is a failure who is faithful and upright; no cause is a failure which is just and true. There is but one failure ; and that is, not to be true to the best one knows. To us and to our race, there is but one failure, and Nowadays Style - Wayne Smith - Smoker Super (Vinyl, LP, Album) is sin.
When I was a gal, if I got riled in my temper or low in my mind, I just went out and grubbed in the garclin, or made hay, or walked a good piece, and it fetched me round beautiful. Never failed ; so I came to see that good fresh dirt is fust-rate physic for folks' spirits as it is for mounds, as they tell on. Take Nature for your friend and teacher. You love and feel near to her already ; you will find her always just and genial, patient and wise.
Watch the harmonious laws that rule her ; imitate her industry, her sweet sanity ; and soon I think you will find that this benignant mother will take you in her arms and show you God. The loom of life turns out many different fabrics.
