Էջ 309 - Come one, come all ! this rock shall fly From its firm base as soon as I.
Էջ 163 - Ah ! then and there was hurrying to and fro, And gathering tears, and tremblings of distress, And cheeks all pale, which but an hour ago Blushed at the praise of their own loveliness; And there were sudden partings, such as press The life from out young hearts, and choking sighs Which ne'er might be repeated...
Էջ 260 - Are not the mountains, waves, and skies, a part Of me and of my soul, as I of them ? Is not the love of these deep in my heart With a pure passion?
Էջ 98 - Truly, shepherd, in respect of itself, it is a good life; but in respect that it is a shepherd's life, it is naught.

Էջ 157 - Nature ! is there nought to prize, Familiar in thy bosom scenes of life ? And dwells in day-light truth's salubrious skies No form with which the soul may...
Էջ 124 - 'cause you've got plenty," is conclusive as to sharing with your neighbors. Whoever comes into Michigan with nothing, will be sure to better his condition; but woe to him that brings with him any thing like an appearance of abundance, whether of money or mere household conveniences. To have them, and not be willing to share them in some sort with the whole community, is an unpardonable crime. You must lend your best horse to qui que ce...
