"I mean that part of us which cannot perish because it is part of God Himself. I mean that part of us whereby, in spite of this fleshly body, we may rise above fleshly desires and gain some perception of the Infinite Truth which is God. Do you understand, Diana?" "No, I'm afraid I don't," she answered wistfully, "but you won't lose patience wi' me, Peregrine?" "Never, Diana.

One year she had owned of married joy, and then all the happiness of the family had been utterly destroyed, and for the few following years there had been no sadder household in all the country-side than that of Sir Peregrine Orme.

The chief fault in the character of young Peregrine Orme was that he was so young.

Indeed, her uneasiness on that guano matter had been so outweighed by worse uneasiness from another source, that she had become, if not indifferent, at any rate tranquil on the subject. It might be well that Sir Peregrine should preach his sermon, and well that Lucius should hear it; but for herself it would, she thought, have been more comfortable for her to eat her dinner alone.

Mr. Peregrine Palmer was not now so rich a man as when he bought his highland property; also he was involved in affairs of doubtful result. It was natural, therefore, that he should begin to think of the said property not merely as an ornament of life, but as something to fall back upon.

"Peregrine," said he, shaking grave head at me, "your aunt Julia is right a wonderful woman! Poetry is your line, after all books romances, lad imagination " "You think I am romancing, sir?"
