Side 126 - We are not now that strength which in old days Moved earth and heaven ; that which we are, we are ; One equal temper of heroic hearts, Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
Side 222 - And one of his servants said, None my lord, O King; but Elisha the prophet that is in Israel, telleth the King of Israel the words that thou speakest in thy bedchamber.
Side 276 - I take this fitting occasion of recording my strong and deliberate opinion, that in the exercise of a wise and sound policy the British Government is bound not to put aside or neglect such rightful opportunities of acquiring territory or revenue as may from time to time present themselves...
Side 126 - Death closes all: but something ere the end, Some work of noble note, may yet be done, Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.

Peace and security reign throughout the country, and the amount of crime is as small as in our best administered territories....
Side 351 - Jullandur who had been in Scinde, and I saw some terrible cases of oppression by him in this way, to which I speedily put a stop....' To suppose that a man ignorant of the manners, customs, habits, and language of a people, with untrained men under him, could really have governed a country as he thinks he did Scinde, seems to me an impossibility.
Side 159 - To force a sovereign upon a reluctant people, would be as inconsistent with the policy as it is with the principles of the British Government, tending to place the arms and resources of that people at the disposal of the first invader, and to impose the burden of supporting a sovereign without the prospect of benefit from his alliance.
