Halaman 13 - ... of pain and ruin to despise, To scatter plenty o'er a smiling land, And read their history...
Halaman 454 - Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay.
Halaman 155 - Take counsel, execute judgment; make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday ; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth.

Halaman 322 - DID Christ o'er sinners weep, And shall our cheeks be dry? Let floods of penitential grief Burst forth from every eye. 2 The Son of God in tears Angels with wonder see: Be thou astonished, O my soul, He shed those tears for thee. 3 He wept that we might weep Each sin demands a tear ; In Heaven alone no sin is found, And there's no weeping there.
Halaman 334 - Flag of the free heart's hope and home, By angel hands to valor given ! Thy stars have lit the welkin dome, And all thy hues were born in heaven. Forever float that standard sheet !

Such authority is believed to be utterly repugnant both to the principles upon which the general government is constituted, and to the objects which it was expressly formed to attain.
Halaman 401 - Improve, then, young gentlemen, the superior advantages you here enjoy. Let not a day pass without exercising your powers of speech. There is no power like that of oratory. Caesar controlled men by exciting their fears ; Cicero, by captivating their affections and swaying their passions. The influence of the one perished with its author ; that of the other continues to this day.
Halaman 205 - ... dangerous to the Union and destructive of its objects, and seeing no mode by which such controversy can be avoided, except by a strict adherence to the settlement thereof effected by the compromise acts passed at the last session of Congress, do hereby declare their intention to maintain the said settlement inviolate, and to resist all attempts to repeal or alter the acts aforesaid, unless by the general consent of the friends of the measure, and to remedy such evils, if any, as time and experience...
