Стр. 155 - O good old man ; how well in thee appears The constant service of the antique world, When service sweat for duty, not for meed!
Стр. 14 - But alas! for his country — her pride is gone by, And that spirit is broken, which never would bend; O'er the ruin her children in secret must sigh, For 'tis treason to love her, and death to defend.
Стр. 367 - You see me here, you gods, a poor old man, As full of grief as age; wretched in both! If it be you that stir these daughters...

Стр. 259 - Still sways their souls with that commanding art That dazzles, leads, yet chills the vulgar heart. What is that spell, that thus his lawless train Confess and envy, yet oppose in vain? What should it be, that thus their faith can bind? The power of Thought - the magic of the Mind!
