Стр. 23 - The throne we honour is the people's choice — the laws we reverence are our brave fathers' legacy — the faith we follow teaches us to live in bonds of charity with all mankind, and die with hope of bliss beyond the grave. Tell your invaders this, and tell them too, we seek no change ; and, least of all, such change as they would bring us.
Стр. 22 - They, by a strange frenzy driven, fight for power, for plunder, and extended rule: we, for our country, our altars, and our homes. They follow an adventurer whom they fear, and obey a power which they hate : we serve a monarch whom we love —a God whom we adore.
Стр. 22 - Yes, such protection as vultures give to lambs — covering and devouring them !

Be our plain answer this : The throne we honour is the people's choice; the laws we reverence are our brave fathers...
Стр. 22 - They boast, they come but to improve our state, enlarge our thoughts, and free us from the yoke of error!

Стр. 13 - ... lamb. Cora was once betrothed to him ; but, finding she preferred Alonzo, he resigned his claim, and, I fear, his peace, to friendship and to Cora's happiness; yet still he loves her with a pure and holy fire.
Стр. 12 - Ha! ha! ha! ha! Piz. Dost thou despise my offer ? Oro. Thee and thy offer ! — Wealth ! — I have the wealth of two dear gallant sons — I have stored in heaven the riches which repay good actions here — and still my chiefest treasure do I bear about me.
Стр. 13 - Rolla, the kinsman of the king, is the idol of our army; in war a tiger, chafed by the hunter's spear ; in peace more gentle than the unweaned lamb. Cora was once betrothed to him ; but, finding she preferred Alonzo, he resigned his claim, and, I fear, his peace, to friendship and to Cora's happiness...
Стр. 12 - Piz. Hear me, old man. Even now we march against the Peruvian army. We know there is a secret path that leads to your stronghold among the rocks ; guide us to that, and name thy reward.
