25 페이지 - As the waters fail from the sea, and the flood decayeth and drieth up: so man lieth down, and riseth not: Till the heavens be no more, they shall not awake, nor be raised out of their sleep. O that thou wouldest hide me in the grave, that thou wouldest keep me secret, until thy wrath be past, that thou wouldest appoint me a set time, and remember me!
26 페이지 - Life is a narrow vale between the cold and barren peaks of two eternities. We strive in vain to look beyond the heights. We cry aloud, and the only answer is the echo of our wailing cry.
16 페이지 - For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.
