Side 162 - Some natural tears they dropped, but wiped them soon; The world was all before them, where to choose Their place of rest, and Providence their guide. They, hand in hand, with wandering steps and slow, Through Eden took their solitary way.
Side 129 - The whispering zephyr and the purling rill? Who finds not Providence all good and wise, Alike in what it gives, and what denies?
Side 27 - Yet when the sense of sacred presence fires, And strong devotion to the skies aspires, Pour forth thy fervours for a healthful mind, Obedient passions, and a will resign'd...
Side 453 - I do hereby disclaim, disavow, and solemnly abjure, any intention to subvert the present church establishment as settled by law within this realm, and I do solemnly swear, that I never will exercise any privilege to which I am or may become entitled, to disturb or weaken the protestant religion or protestant government in the United Kingdom.

Side 222 - I am convinced that those societies (as the Indians) which live without government, enjoy in their general mass an infinitely greater degree of happiness than those who live under the European governments.
Side 295 - The Atlantic was roused : Mrs. Partington's spirit was up ; but I need not tell you the contest was unequal. The Atlantic Ocean beat Mrs. Partington. She was excellent at a slop or a puddle, but she should not have meddled with a tempest.
Side 471 - Chateaubriand, pourquoi fuir ta patrie, Fuir son amour, notre encens et nos soins? N'entends-tu pas la France qui s'écrie: Mon beau ciel pleure une étoile de moins!
