Page 647 - Fear not: for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the City of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger.

Page 284 - He was the greatest of the Britons of his time — and after the British fashion of not coming near perfection ; Titanic, not Olympian : a heaver of rocks, not a shaper.
