עמוד 225 - The poorest man may in his cottage bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown.

עמוד 564 - See yonder poor, o'erlaboured wight, So abject, mean, and vile, Who begs a brother of the earth To give him leave to toil; And see his lordly fellow- worm The poor petition spurn, Unmindful, though a weeping wife And helpless offspring mourn.
עמוד 275 - Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small ; Though with patience he stands waiting, with exactness grinds he all.
עמוד 564 - I'm designed yon lordling's slave — By Nature's law designed — Why was an independent wish E'er planted in my mind ? If not, why am I subject to His cruelty and scorn ? Or why has man the will and power To make his fellow mourn...
