I repeat it, sir, — we must fight ! An appeal to arms, and to the God of hosts, is all that is left us ! They...
Page 501 - Judge not, and ye shall not be judged : condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned : forgive, and ye shall be forgiven : give, and it shall be given unto you : good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Page 197 - Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
Page 255 - There is a tide in the affairs of men Which taken at the flood leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, *M And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures.
Page 494 - A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold.
Page 42 - Peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun ! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms ! Our brethren arc already in the field ! Why stand we here idle?
