Страница 714 - The word of the Lord by night To the watching Pilgrims came, As they sat by the seaside, And filled their hearts with flame. God said, I am tired of kings, I suffer them no more; Up to my ear the morning brings The outrage of the poor.
Страница 709 - The body politic is formed by a voluntary association of indi[viduals: it is a social compact, by which the whole people cove'nants with each citizen, and each citizen with the whole people, that all shall be governed by certain laws for the common good.

Страница 732 - O'er the ruin her children in secret must sigh, For 'tis treason to love her, and death to defend. Unprized are her sons, till they've learned to betray ; Undistinguished they live, if they shame not their sires; And the torch, that would light them through dignity's way, Must be caught from the pile, where their country expires.

Страница 196 - Hyperion's curls; the front of Jove himself; An eye like Mars, to threaten and command; A station like the herald Mercury, New-lighted on a heaven-kissing hill; A combination and a form, indeed, Where every god did seem to set his seal, To give the world assurance of a man: This was your husband.
Страница 437 - THOSE we love truly never die. Though year by year the sad memorial wreath, A ring and flowers, types of life and death, Are laid upon their graves. For death the pure life saves, And life all pure is love; and love can reach From heaven to earth, and nobler lessons teach Than those by mortals read. Well blessed is he who has a dear one dead ; A friend he has whose face will never change — A dear companion that will not grow strange ; The anchor of a love is death.
