Side 119 - There exist moments in the life of man, When he is nearer the great Soul of the world Than is man's custom, and possesses freely The power of questioning his destiny...
Side 221 - From the highest, As from the vilest thing of every day, He learns to wean himself : for the strong hours Conquer him.
Side 44 - As when fire is with water commixed and contending ; And the spray of its wrath to the welkin up-soars, And flood upon flood hurries on, never ending, And as with the swell of the far thunder-boom, Rushes roaringly forth from the heart of the gloom.
Side 43 - As when fire is with water commix' d and contending, And the spray of its wrath to the welkin up-soars, And flood upon flood hurries on, never ending. And it never will rest, nor from travail be free, Like a sea that is laboring the birth of a sea.
Side 43 - And all as before heard in silence the king — Till a youth, with an aspect unfearing but gentle, 'Mid the tremulous squires, stepped out from the ring, Unbuckling his girdle and doffing his mantle ; And the murmuring crowd, as they parted asunder, On the stately boy cast their looks of wonder.
Side 360 - There at the door she stands, and can no further, She trembles so with terror and with joy. TELL. Oh Hedwig, Hedwig, mother of my children ! God has been kind and helpful in our woes. No tyrant's hand shall e'er divide us more.
Side 258 - STAUFF. (embracing her) Well may he fight for hearth and home, that clasps A heart so rare as thine against his own ! What are the host of emperors to him ? Gertrude, farewell !

Side 247 - On the heights peals the thunder, and trembles the bridge, The huntsman bounds on by the dizzying ridge. Undaunted he hies him O'er ice-covered wild, Where leaf never budded, Nor Spring ever smiled; And beneath him an ocean of mist, where his eye No longer the dwellings of man can espy; Through the parting clouds only The earth can be seen, Far down 'neath the vapour The meadows of green.
Side 259 - Tis very hard that we must bear the stones, To make a keep and dungeon for ourselves ! TASK. What's that you mutter? 'Tis a worthless race, For nothing fit but just to milk their cows, And saunter idly up and down the hills. OLD MAN (sinks down exhausted). I can no more.
