עמוד 47 - That, viewing it, we seem almost to obtain Our innocent sweet simple years again. This fond attachment to the well-known place Whence first we started into life's long race, Maintains its hold with such unfailing sway, We feel it e'en in age, and at our latest day.
עמוד 203 - Yes, I am proud ; I must be proud to see Men, not afraid of God, afraid of me ; Safe from the bar, the pulpit, and the throne, Yet touch'd and sham'd by ridicule alone.
עמוד 8 - In the evening I sat down, and began to write, without knowing in the least what I intended to say or relate. The work grew on my hands, and I grew fond of it— add, that I was very glad to think of anything, rather than politics.

And numbers joining with the forward crew, For no one reason — but that numbers do.
עמוד 135 - MINUTELY trace man's life ; year after year, Through all his days let all his deeds appear, A.nd then, though some may in that life be strange, Yet there appears no vast nor sudden change : c 3 The links that bind those various deeds are seen, And no mysterious void is left between.
