Page 68 - Though they bloom and look gay like the rose; Yet all our fond care to preserve them is vain, Time kills them as fast as he goes. Then I'll not be proud of my youth or my beauty, Since both of them wither and fade; But gain a good name by well doing my duty, This will scent like a rose when I'm dead.

Page 70 - WHO is she that with graceful steps, and with a lively air, trips over yonder plain ? The rose blushes on her cheeks ; the sweetness of the morning breathes from her lips ; joy, tempered with innocence and modesty, sparkles in her eyes ; and the cheerfulness of her heart appears in all her movements. Her name is Health : she is the daughter of Exercise and Temperance. Their sons inhabit the mountains and the plain.

He who formed the heart knows what passes within it. We should be kind to all persons, even to those who are unkind to us.
