Side 49 - Sit, Jessica : Look how the floor of heaven Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold : There's not the smallest orb which thou behold'st, But in his motion like an angel sings, Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubims ; Such harmony is in immortal souls ; But, whilst this muddy vesture of decay Doth grossly close us in, we cannot hear it.
Side 96 - Delightful task! to rear the tender thought, To teach the young idea how to shoot, To pour the fresh instruction o'er the mind, To breathe the' enlivening spirit, and to fix The generous purpose in the glowing breast.
Side 40 - The charm dissolves apace ; And as the morning steals upon the night, Melting the darkness, so their rising senses Begin to chase the ignorant fumes that mantle Their clearer reason.
Side 196 - Bear a lily in thy hand ; Gates of brass cannot withstand One touch of that magic wand. Bear through sorrow, wrong, and ruth, In thy heart the dew of youth, On thy lips the smile of truth.

Side 168 - ... painted upon the human face: at this moment of painful uncertainty the mother drew her close to her side, and kissed her fondly, when at once the truth flashed upon the child, and all mistrust and anxiety disappeared from her face, as with an expression of exceeding joy she eagerly nestled to the bosom of her parent, and yielded herself to her fond embraces.
Side 55 - I know my body's of so frail a kind, As force without, fevers within can kill ; I know the heavenly nature of my mind, But 'tis corrupted both in wit and will. I know my soul hath power to know all things, Yet is she blind and ignorant in all ; I know I'm one of nature's little kings, Yet to the least and vilest things am thrall. I...
