Page 525 - To-day deep thoughts resolve with me to drench In mirth that after no repenting draws ; Let Euclid rest, and Archimedes pause, And what the Swede intend, and what the French.
Page 501 - I have ever observed it to have been the office of a wise patriot, among the greatest affairs of the state, to take care of the commonwealth of learning. For schools, they are the seminaries of state ; and nothing is worthier the study of a statesman than that part of the republic which we call the advancement of letters.
