Page 159 - And she may still exist in undiminished vigour when some traveller from New Zealand shall, in the midst of a vast solitude, take his stand on a broken arch of London Bridge to sketch the ruins of St. Paul's.
Page 137 - Lord: 33 But he that is married caretb for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife. 34 There is difference also between a wife and a virgin.
