第 53 頁 - I thank God, there are no free schools nor printing, and I hope we shall not have these hundred years; for learning has brought disobedience, and heresy, and sects into the world, and printing has divulged them, and libels against the best government. God keep us from both!
第 30 頁 - We crave for all of us but the liberty either to die openly, or to live openly in the land of our nativity. If we deserve death, it beseemeth the majesty of justice not to see us closely murdered, yea starved to death with hunger and cold, and stifled in loathsome dungeons.
第 5 頁 - Flying between the cold moon and the earth, Cupid all arm'd : a certain aim he took At a fair vestal throned by the west, And loosed his love-shaft smartly from his bow, As it should pierce a hundred thousand hearts : But I might see young Cupid's fiery shaft Quench'd in the chaste beams of the watery moon, And the imperial votaress passed on, In maiden meditation, fancy-free.
第 25 頁 - For I am not so simple to think that ever any other motive than wealth will ever erect there a commonwealth or draw company from their ease and humors'**' at home to stay in New England to effect my purposes.
第 33 頁 - Majesty's mind, that he would connive at them, and not molest them (provided they carried themselves peaceably). But to allow, or tolerate them by his public authority, under his seal, they found it would not be.
第 17 頁 - Fathers upon the theatre of their glory! — What has saved it from being the theme of ridicule and contempt? What has rescued it from being handed down through all history, as a wretched effort to compass a mighty end by paltry and utterly inadequate means?

Follow this feeble, devoted band, to the spot which they have at length selected for their habitation. See them felling a few trees,...
第 41 頁 - ... instead of friends, shelter or refreshment, — famine, exposure, the wolf, the savage, disease and death seemed waiting for them — and yet accomplishing an end which Royalty and patronage, the love of dominion and of gold, individual adventure and corporate enterprise had so long essayed in vain, and founding a Colony which was to defy alike the machinations and the menaces of Tyranny, in all periods of its history — it needs not, it needs not, that I should find the coral pathway of the...
第 45 頁 - Not only did they form respectively the great northern and southern rallying-points of civilization on this continent ; not only was the most friendly competition, or the most cordial cooperation, as circumstances allowed, kept up between them during their early colonial existence; but who forgets the generous emulation, the noble rivalry, with which they continually challenged and seconded each other in resisting the first beginnings of British aggression, in the persons of their James Otises and...
第 48 頁 - Tell me, now, which of the two will soonest grow impatient of its colonial restraint, soonest throw off its foreign subordination, and soonest assert itself free and independent? And what other solution can any one suggest to the problem presented by the fact as it exists — the very reverse of that which would thus have been predicted — what other clue can any one offer to the mystery, that the French Colonies should have remained, not entirely quietly, indeed, but with only occasional returns...
第 55 頁 - American settlements may be looked upon as the first and most efficacious cause, to which the present prosperity of the United States may be attributed. . . . When I reflect upon the consequences of this primary circumstance, methinks, I see the destiny of America embodied in the first PURITAN who landed on these shores, just as the human race was represented by the first man.
