Page 185 - GOD'S perfect law converts the soul, Reclaims from false desires ; With sacred wisdom his sure word The ignorant inspires. 2 The statutes of the Lord are just, And bring sincere delight : His pure commands in search of truth Assist the feeblest sight.

Page 184 - Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other, as Poor Richard says, and scarce in that; for, it is true, We may give advice, but we cannot give conduct. However, remember this, They that will not be counselled, cannot be helped; and further, that, If you will not hear Reason, she will surely rap your knuckles, as Poor Richard says.
Page 152 - Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She is like the merchants' ships; she bringeth her food from afar.
