עמוד 255 - Then gently scan your brother Man, Still gentler sister Woman ; Tho' they may gang a kennin wrang, To step aside is human : One point must still be greatly dark, The moving Why they do it ; And just as lamely can ye mark, How far perhaps they rue it.
עמוד 100 - Alas, how easily things go wrong ! A sigh too much, or a kiss too long ! And there follows a mist and a weeping rain, And life is never the same again.
עמוד 236 - On the other side up rose Belial, in act more graceful and humane ; A fairer person lost not heaven ; he seem'd For dignity composed, and high exploit: But all was false and hollow ; though his tongue Dropt manna, and could make the worse appear The better reason...
