Strana 196 - ... and thy body, like thy soul, was not to know freedom . Yet toil on, toil on ; thou art in thy duty, be out of it who may; thou toilest for the altogether indispensable, for daily bread.
Strana 316 - Where some, like magistrates, correct at home, Others, like merchants, venture trade abroad, Others, like soldiers, armed in their stings, Make boot upon the summer's velvet buds, Which pillage they with merry march bring home...
Strana 196 - Two men I honor, and no third. First, the toil-worn Craftsman that with earth-made Implement laboriously conquers the Earth, and makes her man's. Venerable to me is the hard Hand ; crooked, coarse ; wherein notwithstanding lies a cunning virtue, indefeasibly royal, as of the Scepter of this Planet. Venerable too is the rugged face, all weather-tanned, besoiled, with its rude intelligence ; for it is the face of a Man living manlike.
Strana 196 - Highest of all, when his outward and his inward endeavours are one : when we can name him Artist ; not earthly Craftsman only, but inspired Thinker, who with heaven-made Implement conquers Heaven for us ! If the poor and humble toil that we have Food, must not the high and glorious toil for him in return, that he have Light, have Guidance, Freedom, Immortality...

Such a one will take thee back to Nazareth itself; thou wilt see the splendour of Heaven spring forth from the humblest depths of Earth, like a light shining in great darkness.
Strana 316 - Which pillage they with merry march bring home To the tent royal of their emperor : Who, busied in his majesty, surveys The singing masons building roofs of gold ; The civil citizens kneading up the honey ; The poor mechanic porters crowding in Their heavy burdens at his narrow gate ; The sad-eyed justice, with his surly hum, Delivering o'er to executors pale The lazy yawning drone.
Strana 168 - Caerulea glacie concretae atque imbribus atris ; Has inter mediamque duae mortalibus aegris Munere concessae divum ; et via secta per ambas, Obliquus qua se signorum verteret ordo. Mundus, ut ad Scythiam Rhipaeasque arduus arces 240 Consurgit, premitur Libyae devexus in austros. Hie vertex nobis semper sublimis ; at ilium Sub pedibus Styx atra videt manesque profundi.
Strana 8 - all the freemen of the land," and provided that each county should send to the Commons of the realm, two knights, each city two burgesses, and each borough two members. Thus about...
Strana 196 - Hardly entreated brother ! For us was thy back so bent, for us were thy straight limbs and fingers so deformed ; thou wert our conscript, on whom the lot fell, aud fighting our battles wert so marred.
