עמוד 212 - For even though vanquished he could argue still; While words of learned length and thundering sound. Amazed the gazing rustics ranged around, And still they gazed, and still the wonder grew That one small head could carry all he knew.
עמוד 35 - The treasures of the deep are not so precious As are the concealed comforts of a man Locked up in woman's love. I scent the air Of blessings, when I come but near the house. What a delicious breath marriage sends forth. . . The violet bed's not sweeter.
עמוד 115 - Every man in this age has not a soul of crystal, for all men to read their actions through : men's hearts and faces are so far asunder, that they hold no intelligence.
עמוד 26 - May temperance crown their feast, and friendship share ! May pity come, Love's sister spirit, there ! May they shun baseness, as they shun the grave ! May they be frugal, pious, humble, brave ! Sweet peace be theirs, the moonlight of the breast, And occupation, and alternate rest ; And, dear to care and thought, the rural walk ! Theirs...

עמוד 177 - And they believe him !— oh ! the lover may Distrust that look which steals his soul away ; — The babe may cease to think that it can play With heaven's rainbow ;— alchymists may doubt The shining gold their crucible gives out ; — But Faith, fanatic Faith, once wedded fast To some dear falsehood, hugs it to the last.
