A chord, stronger or weaker, is snapped asunder in every parting, and Time's busy fingers are not practised in re-splicing broken ties.

Rarely, rarely. Bulwer-Lytton

A Christian is a believer in Jesus. He believes that if he only throws his own lost and sinful soul on the Redeemer, there is in His sacrifice sufficient merit to cancel all his guilt, and in His heart sufficient love to undertake the keeping of his soul for all eternity. He believes that Jesus is a Saviour. He believes that His heart is set on His people's holiness, and that it is only by making them new creatures, pure-minded, kind-hearted, unselfish, devout, that He can fit them for a home and a life like His own, that He can fit them for the occupations and enjoyments of heaven. And believing all this he prays and labors after holiness. James Hamilton

A Christian is God Almighty's gentleman; a gentleman, in the vulgar, superficial way of understanding the word, is the devil's christian. But to throw aside these polished and too current counterfeits for something valuable and sterling, the real gentleman should be gentle in everything, at least in everything that depends on himself - in carriage, temper, constructions, aims, desires. He ought, therefore, to be mild, calm, quiet, even, temperate - not hasty in judgment, not exorbitant in ambition, not overbearing, not proud, not rapacious, not oppressive; for these things are contrary to gentleness. Many such gentlemen are to be found, I trust; and many more would be were the true meaning of the name borne in mind and duly inculcated. Hare

A chumeziger Borchü. Jüdisch-deutsch Uneigentlich von Menschen und Dingen, die ihren frühern Glanz eingebüßt haben. Borchu ist der Anfang des täglichen Abendgebets und heißt wörtlich: Preiset! Am Ausgange des Passah-Festes werden mit diesem Gebete die Feiertage geschlossen und der Genuss von Gesäuertem wieder hergestellt. Dieses Gebet, welches sich während der acht Ostertage einer besondern Weihe erfreute, wird nunmehr zu einem 'chumezigen', das ist zu einem gewöhnlichen, wo es erlaubt ist, Gesäuertes zu genießen, herabgesetzt.
