Сторінка 58 - There was woman's fearless eye, Lit by her deep love's truth; There was manhood's brow serenely high, And the fiery heart of youth. What sought they thus afar? Bright jewels of the mine? The wealth of seas, the spoils of war? — They sought a faith's pure shrine. Ay, call it holy ground, — The soil where first they trod! They have left unstained what there they found — Freedom to worship God ! Felicia Hemans.
Сторінка 58 - THE breaking waves dashed high On a stern and rock-bound coast, And the woods against a stormy sky Their giant branches tossed ; And the heavy night hung dark The hills and waters o'er, When a band of exiles moored their bark On the wild New England shore.
Сторінка 105 - Like the fair flower dishevelled in the wind ; Riches have wings, and grandeur is a dream ; The man we celebrate must find a tomb, And we that worship him, ignoble graves. Nothing is proof against the general curse Of vanity, that seizes all below. The only amaranthine flower on earth Is virtue, the only lasting treasure, truth.
Сторінка 39 - How goodly are thy tents, O Jacob, and thy tabernacles, O Israel...
Сторінка 28 - They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters ; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.

Сторінка 96 - For, after a long and manly, but vain struggle with his distemper, he dismissed his physicians, and with them all hopes of life : but with his hopes of life he dismissed not his concern for the living, but sent for a youth nearly related, and finely accomplished, yet not above being the better for good impressions from a dying friend.
Сторінка 57 - Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at the north wind's breath, And stars to set, but all — Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O Death...
Сторінка 28 - They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths : their soul is melted because of trouble.
Сторінка 94 - He has dissipated the prejudice that had long connected gaiety with vice, and easiness of manners with laxity of principles. He has restored virtue to its dignity, and taught innocence not to be ashamed. This is an elevation of literary character " above all Greek, above all Roman fame.
