Strana 99 - ... constancy, to love thee still. Yea, it had been a sin to go And prostitute affection so. Since we are taught no prayers to say, To such as must to others pray. Yet do thou glory in thy choice — Thy choice, of his good fortune boast ; I'll neither grieve, nor yet rejoice, To see him gain what I have lost. The height of my disdain shall be, To laugh at him, to blush for thee ; To love thee still, but go no more A begging at a beggar's door.
Strana 13 - Hannibal gave my young ideas such a turn that I used to strut in raptures up and down after the recruiting drum and bagpipe, and wish myself tall enough to be a soldier, while the story of Wallace poured a Scottish prejudice into my veins, which will boil along there till the floodgates of life shut in eternal rest.
Strana 6 - The difference betwixt these consists in the degrees of force and liveliness, with which they strike upon the mind, and make their way into our thought or consciousness. Those perceptions, which enter with most force and violence, we may name impressions; and under this name I comprehend all our sensations, passions and emotions, as they make their first appearance in the soul.

Strana 99 - He that can love unloved again, Hath better store of love than brain; God send me love my debts to pay While unthrifts fool their love away!
Strana 21 - Sic coarse-spun thoughts as thae want pith to move My settled mind; I'm o'er far gane in love. Patie to me is dearer than my breath; But want of him I dread nae other skaith. There's nane of a' the herds that tread the green Has sic a smile, or sic twa glancing een.
Strana 75 - A MAN of words and not of deeds Is like a garden full of weeds...
Strana 65 - ... other bosom ties perhaps equally tender. Where the individual only suffers by the consequences of his own thoughtlessness, indolence, or folly, he may be excusable ; nay shining abilities, and some of the nobler virtues, may half sanctify a heedless character ; but where God and nature have...
Strana 22 - Gang soon to bed, and quickly rise; O lash your steeds, post time away, And haste about our bridal day: And if ye're wearied, honest light, Sleep, gin ye like, a week that night.
