Strana 359 - Tis not in mortals to command success, But we'll do more, Sempronius; we'll deserve it.
Strana 501 - ... beginning, I am still laboring to prop the frail and worthless fabric. Yet I have the murmurs of its friends no less than the curses of its foes for my reward. What can I do better than withdraw from the scene? Every day proves to me more and more, that this American world was not made for me.
Strana 57 - Almighty's form Glasses itself in tempests: in all time, Calm or convulsed — in breeze, or gale, or storm. Icing the pole, or in the torrid clime Dark-heaving; — boundless, endless, and sublime; The image of eternity, the throne Of the Invisible: even from out thy slime The monsters of the deep are made; each zone Obeys thee; thou goest forth, dread, fathomless, alone.
Strana 97 - ... the action of the President, whether it be that of approval or disapproval, will not vary the result, but leave the parties in statu quo, as if there had been no inquiry.

Strana 399 - To prepare the ground they bruise the barke of the trees neare the roote, then do they scortch the roots with fire that they grow no more. The next yeare with a crooked peece of wood, they beat up the woodes by the rootes; and in that moulds, they plant their corne.
Strana 215 - River; thence in a straight line to the head of St. Mary's River; and thence down the middle of that river to the Atlantic Ocean.
Strana 499 - Mr. Jefferson's discharge of his diplomatic duties was marked by great ability, diligence, and patriotism ; and while he resided at Paris, in one of the most interesting periods, his character for intelligence, his love of knowledge and of the society of learned men, distinguished him in the highest circles of the French capital. No court in Europe had at that time in Paris a representative commanding or enjoying higher regard, for political knowledge or for general attainments, than the minister...
Strana 32 - States would be increased to forty-eight; that our territory would be broadened so as to extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the Great Lakes on the north to the Gulf of Mexico on the south...
