Side 11 - There is scarcely a great writer of fiction who has not somewhere introduced this figure in the shifting panorama of romance, appealing for pity to a world which never fails to compassionate imaginary woes; now it is Effie Deans in the Heart of Midlothian ; now Fantine, resting by the roadside with Cosette in her arms; or Hester Prynne, pressing little Pearl against the scarlet letter as she listens from the pillory to the sermon of Mr. Dimmesdale.
Side 84 - The sweetest lives are those to duty wed, Whose deeds, both great and small, Are close-knit strands of an unbroken thread Where love ennobles all. The world may sound no trumpets, ring no bells— The Book of Life the shining record tells.
Side 257 - It has given speech to some who were dumb, and who, if left without special aid, would have remained dumb. "It has greatly improved the condition of more than four-fifths of its pupils, as their friends will testify.
