Page 123 - That no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested or burthened, in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge or affect their civil capacities.
Page 121 - That religion, or the duty which we owe to our Creator, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence...
Page 101 - If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning. If I do not remember thee, let my tongue cleave to the roof of my mouth...
Page 58 - Beneath those rugged elms, that yew tree's shade, Where heaves the turf in many a mouldering heap, Each in his narrow cell for ever laid, The rude forefathers of the hamlet sleep.

Page 252 - And laugh at that damnable ball ; Tom, I knew you were always a trump. A good right arm, a nervy hand, A wrist as strong as a sapling oak, Buried deep in the Malvern sand — To laugh at that is a sorry joke. Never again your iron grip Shall I feel in my shrinking palm — Tom, Tom, I see your trembling lip...
Page 252 - Tom, there's naught so sweet As homage shown in mute surmise. Bravely your arm in battle strove, Freely, for freedom's sake, you gave it; It has perished — but a nation's love In proud remembrance will save it. Go to your sweetheart, then, forthwith — You're a fool for staying so long — Woman's love you'll find no myth, But a truth, living, tender, strong.
