Page 33 - Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight. I love thee freely, as men strive for Right ; I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise. I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints...
Page 39 - Hark, where my blossomed pear-tree in the hedge Leans to the field and scatters on the clover Blossoms and dewdrops — at the bent spray's edge- — That's the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over, Lest you should think he never could recapture The first fine careless rapture!
Page 39 - This I say of me, but think of you, Love ! This to you — yourself my moon of poets! Ah, but that's the world's side — there's the wonder — Thus they see you, praise you, think they know you. There in turn I stand with them and praise you, Out of my own self, I dare to phrase it.

He giveth His beloved sleep.

Page 28 - Of a slight, delicate figure, with a shower of dark curls falling on either side of a most expressive face, large tender eyes richly fringed by dark eyelashes, a smile like a sunbeam...
Page 265 - Resolved, That it is the duty of the women of this country to secure to themselves their sacred right to the elective franchise.
Page 189 - McLeod showed in the sermon how we all tried to please self, and live for that, and in so doing found no rest. Christ had come not only to die for us, but to show how we were to live. The second prayer was very touching; his allusions to us were so simple, saying, after his mention of us, 'bless their children.
Page 45 - Of abdicating power in it : she owned She liked a woman to be womanly, And English women, she thanked God and sighed (Some people always sigh in thanking God), Were models to the universe.
Page 35 - I confess that I dream of the day when an English statesman shall arise with a heart too large for England ; having courage in the face of his countrymen to assert of some suggested policy, — " This is good for your trade ; this is necessary for your domination : but it will vex a people hard by ; it will hurt a people farther off; it will profit nothing to the general humanity : therefore, away with it ! — it is not for you or for me.
