Page 160 - Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy; Men who possess opinions and a will; Men who have Honor; men who will not lie; Men who can stand before a demagogue And Damn his treacherous flatteries without winking!

Page 112 - We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breaths; In feelings, not in figures on a dial. We should count time by heart-throbs. He most lives Who thinks most — feels the noblest — acts the best.
Page 166 - I love thee — 1 love thee ! Is all that I can say. I love thee — I love thee ! Is ever on my tongue ; In all my proudest poesy That chorus still is sung ; It is the verdict of my eyes, Amidst the gay and young : I love thee — I love thee ! A thousand maids among. I love thee — I love thee...
Page 261 - The purest treasure mortal times afford Is spotless reputation ; that away, Men are but gilded loam or painted clay.
