Side 174 - He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much ; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children ; who has filled his niche and accomplished his task ; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul ; who has never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it ; who has always looked for the best in others and given the best he had ; whose life was an inspiration...
Side 44 - Could I have rewarded these services I would not now call upon my Country; but as that has not been in my power, I leave Emma Lady Hamilton, therefore, a Legacy to my King and Country, that they will give her an ample provision to maintain her rank in life.
Side 152 - Yet I doubt not through the ages one increasing purpose runs, And the thoughts of men are widened with the process of the suns.
Side 44 - First, that she obtained the King of Spain's letter, in 1796, to his brother, the King of Naples, acquainting him of his intention to declare war against England ; from which letter the Ministry sent out orders to the then Sir John Jervis to strike a stroke, if opportunity offered, against either the arsenals of Spain or her fleets.

Side 44 - Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavours. lf it may not, give us the strength to encounter that which is to come, that we be brave in peril, constant in tribulation, temperate in wrath, and in all changes of fortune and down to the gates of death, loyal and loving one to another.

Side 131 - Man's love is of man's life a thing apart, "Tis woman's whole existence; man may range The court, camp, church, the vessel, and the mart; Sword, gown, gain, glory, offer in exchange Pride, fame, ambition, to fill up his heart, And few there are whom these cannot estrange; Men have all these resources, we but one, To love again, and be again undone.
Side 44 - I dedicate my time to this charming lady; there is a prospect of her leaving town with Sir William, for two or three weeks.

Side 44 - Hamilton therefore a legacy to my king and country, that they will give her an ample provision to maintain her rank in life. I also leave to the beneficence of my country my adopted daughter, Horatia Nelson Thompson; and I desire she will use in future the name of Nelson only. These are the only favors I ask of my king and country at this moment when I am going to fight their battle.
Side 164 - SOME ladies love the jewels in Love's zone And gold-tipped darts he hath for painless play In idle scornful hours he flings away ; And some that listen to his lute's soft tone Do love to vaunt the silver praise their own ; Some prize his blindfold sight ; and there be they Who kissed his wings which brought him yesterday And thank his wings to-day that he is flown.
