Page 8 - Soli eravamo e senza alcun sospetto. Per piů fiate gli occhi ci sospinse Quella lettura, e scolorocci il viso; Ma solo un punto fu quel che ci vinse. Quando leggemmo il disiato riso...
Page 209 - Did clap their bloody hands. He nothing common did or mean Upon that memorable scene, But with his keener eye The axe's edge did try; Nor call'd the Gods, with vulgar spite, To vindicate his helpless right But bow'd his comely head Down, as upon a bed.
Page 118 - We must forget all feelings save the one — We must resign all passions save our purpose — We must behold no object save our country — And only look on death as beautiful, So that the sacrifice ascend to heaven And draw down freedom on her evermore.
