Strana 52 - ... sweet as the smile when fond lovers meet, and soft as their parting tear!
Strana 36 - tis He alone Decidedly can try us, He knows each chord — its various tone, Each spring — its various bias : Then at the balance let's be mute, We never can adjust it; What's done we partly may compute, But know not what's resisted.
Strana 20 - The Poetic Genius of my Country found me as the prophetic bard Elijah did Elisha — at the plough, and threw her inspiring mantle over me. She bade me sing the loves, the joys, the rural scenes and rural pleasures of my natal Soil, in my native tongue : I tuned my wild, artless notes, as she inspired.
Strana 52 - My wife is hourly expected to be put to bed ! Good God ! what a situation for her to be in, poor girl, without a friend ! I returned from sea-bathing quarters to-day ; and my medical friends would almost persuade me that I am better ; but I think and feel that my strength is so gone, that the disorder will prove fatal to me. Your son-in-law, RB...
Strana 37 - The most placid good-nature and sweetness of disposition ; a warm heart, gratefully devoted with all its powers to love me ; vigorous health and sprightly cheerfulness, set off to the best advantage by a more than commonly handsome figure : these, I think, in a woman may make a good wife, though she should never have read a page but the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament, nor have danced in a brighter assembly than a penny pay wedding.

Strana 1 - The whole procession moved forward to that sublime and affecting strain of music, the Dead March in Saul : and three volleys fired over his grave marked the return of Burns to his parent earth ! The spectacle was in a high degree grand and solemn, and according with the general sentiments of sympathy and sorrow which the occasion had called forth.
Strana 49 - But as the twilight deepened, he appeared to grow " very sad about something," and at length wandered out into the barn-yard, to which his wife, in her anxiety...
Strana 85 - You know that my pretensions to musical taste, are merely a few of nature's instincts, untaught and untutored by art. For this reason, many musical compositions, particularly where much of the merit lies in counterpoint; however they may transport and ravish the ears of you connoisseurs, affect my simple lug no otherwise than merely as melodious din. On the other hand, by way of amends, I am delighted with many little melodies, which the learned musician despises as silly and insipid.
Strana 57 - Brave bonnie Jean ! We love to tell The story from thy lips that fell; The lengthened life which Heaven gave Casts radiant twilight on his grave. A noble woman, strong to shield ; Her tender heart his trusty bield ; The critic from her doorway turns With faith renewed and love for Burns.
