Page 19 - I don't know whether it ought to be astonishing or not that a little saffron man, somewhere in that unhappy archipelago, should have been born with a gift so far beyond that of any or all the authors of our roaring literary successes...
Page 32 - If a college education means anything, it means fitting a man to do better service than he could do without it; if it does not mean that it means nothing, and if a man does not get that out of it, he gets less than nothing out of it. No man has a right to arrogate to himself one particle of superiority...
Page 5 - Often the sorrowful pilgrim is envied, Circling the globe like a sea-gull above; Little, ah, little they know what a void Saddens his soul by the absence of love. Home may the pilgrim return in the future, Back to his loved ones his footsteps he bends ; Naught will he find but the snow and the ruins, Ashes of love and the tomb of his friends. Pilgrim, begone!

Page 38 - En un triángulo rectángulo, el cuadrado de la hipotenusa es Igual a la suma de los cuadrados de los catetos».
Page 37 - Hoja seca que cuela indecisa Y arrebata violento turbión, Así vive en la tierra el viajero, Sin norte, sin alma, sin patria ni amor. Busca ansioso doquiera la dicha Y la dicha se aleja fugaz: ¡Vana sombra que burla su anhelo!... ¡Por ella el viajero se lanza a la mar! Impelido por mano invisible Vagara confín en confín; Los recuerdos le harán compañía De seres queridos, de un día feliz.
Page 37 - ... satisfactory reply. SEC. 9. (a) For the purpose of facilitating deposits of small savings and of extending the privileges of the postal savings banks to the smaller communities, there shall be issued, by the bureau of posts, postal savings bank stamps in denominations of five, ten, and twenty centavos, respectively, which stamps shall be for sale at every postal savings bank in the Philippine Islands, and all moneys received in payment for said stamps shall be considered as postal savings bank...
Page 33 - I'll return, overburdened with care; The heart's dearest solace will smile on me there; No more from that cottage again will I roam ; Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home.
