Page 198 - I would not have a slave to till my ground, To carry me, to fan me while I sleep, And tremble when I wake, for all the wealth That sinews bought and sold have ever earn'd.
Page 191 - Fired at first sight with what the Muse imparts. In fearless youth we tempt the heights of arts. While from the bounded level of our mind Short views we take, nor see the lengths behind; But more advanced, behold with strange surprise New distant scenes of endless science rise!
Page 161 - Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
