Quotes[edit]

  • She is concerned for the orphan and concerned for the widow.
    She does not forget the man who helps others,
    she is a mother for the orphan;
    Nance, a carer for the widow,
    who always finds advice for the debt-slave;
    the lady who gives protection for refugees.
    She seeks out a place for the weak.
    She swells his collecting basket for him;
    she makes his collecting vessel profitable for him.
    For the righteous maiden who has taken her path,
    Nance chooses a young man of means.
    Nance raises a secure house like a roof over the widow who could not remarry.
  • WIDOW, n. A pathetic figure that the Christian world has agreed to take humorously, although Christ's tenderness towards widows was one of the most marked features of his character.
