Side 218 - Heaven is not reached at a single bound ; But we build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies, And we mount to its summit round by round.
Side 40 - Adm'r'l, speak; what shall I say?" "Why, say: 'Sail on! sail on! and on!' " "My men grow mutinous day by day; My men grow ghastly, wan and weak."
