Page 280 - His nature is too noble for the world: He would not flatter Neptune for his trident, Or Jove for his power to thunder.
Page 50 - ... there is no private life which has not been determined by a wider public life, from the time when the primeval milkmaid had to wander with the wanderings of her clan, because the cow she milked was one of a herd which had made the pastures bare.
