Nicole Justine C. Abrico A Child of Sorrow is a 1921 novel by Zoilo Galang.

It is considered the first Philippine novel written in the English. Critics have suggested that the novel was heavily influenced by the sentimentalism of the Tagalog prose narratives of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. The Sursum Corda (Latin for "Lift up your hearts" or literally "Hearts lifted"; Slavonic is the opening dialogue to the Preface of the Eucharistic Prayer or Anaphora in the liturgies of the Christian Church, dating back to at least the third century and the Anaphora of the Apostolic Tradition. The dialogue is recorded in the earliest liturgies of the Christian Church, and is found in all ancient rites. Box of ashes and other stories The tale begins thousands of years ago, when the first woman to exist in mortal form was created by the gods of Greece and opened the Box. Unlimited evils were let loose upon the world, and the only thing that remained when the Box closed was our Hope. Champions arose over the centuries to fight those evils, but although they could be pushed back or kept at bay, mankind has never been able to truly defeat the Box's legacy.

Reminiscences Rabindranath Tagore (7 May 1861 – 7 August 1941), was a Bengali polymath who reshaped his region's literature and music. Author of Gitanjali and its "profoundly sensitive, fresh and beautiful verse", he became the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1913. In translation his poetry was viewed as spiritual and mercurial; his seemingly mesmeric personality, flowing hair, and other-worldly dress earned him a prophet-like reputation in the West. His "elegant prose and magical poetry" remain largely unknown outside
