Page 42 - Bacchus' blessings are a treasure, Drinking is the soldier's pleasure: Rich the treasure, Sweet the pleasure, Sweet is pleasure after pain. Soothed with the sound, the king grew vain; Fought all his battles o'er again, And thrice he routed all his foes, and thrice he slew the slain!
Page 103 - The clouds and sunbeams, o'er his eye That once their shades and glory threw Have left in yonder silent sky No vestige where they flew. The annals of the human race, Their ruins, since the world began, Of HIM afford no other trace Than this, — THERE LIVED A MAN ! November 4, 1805.

Page 446 - Jefferies himself, when the court had no interest, was an upright judge. A court of justice may be subject to another sort of bias, more important and pernicious, as it reaches beyond the interest of individuals, and affects the whole community. A judge under the influence of government, may be honest enough in the decision of private causes, yet a traitor to the public.
Page 103 - The changing spirits' rise and fall ; We know that these were felt by him, For these are felt by all. He suffered — but his pangs are o'er ; Enjoyed— but his delights are fled ; Had friends — his friends are now no more ; And foes — his foes are dead. He...
Page 260 - And I looked, and rose up, and said unto the nobles, and to the rulers, and to the rest of the people, Be not ye afraid of them ; remember the Lord, which is great and terrible, and fight for your brethren, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your houses.
