Halaman 236 - And the people said unto Saul, Shall Jonathan die, who hath wrought this great salvation in Israel ? God forbid : as the LORD liveth, there shall not one hair of his head fall to the ground ; for he hath wrought with God this day. So the people rescued Jonathan, that he died not.

Halaman 154 - Hold ! I have seen the aliens do their duty ?' The Duke of Wellington is not a man of an excitable temperament. His mind is of a cast too martial to be easily moved ; but notwithstanding his habitual inflexibility, I cannot help thinking that when he heard his...
Halaman 154 - Aliens! good God! was Arthur, Duke of Wellington, in the House of Lords, — and did he not start up and exclaim, " HOLD ! I HAVE SEEN THE ALIENS DO THEiR DUTY!" The Duke of Wellington is not a man of an excitable temperament. His mind is of a cast, too martial to be easily moved ; but, notwithstanding his habitual inflexibility...
Halaman 416 - Spiritus intus alit: totamque infusa per artus ' Mens agitat molem, et magno se corpore miscet ' Inde hominum pecudumque genus vitaeque volantum ' Et quae marmoreo fert monstra sub aequore pontus.
Halaman 82 - We, your Majesty's most dutiful and loyal subjects, the Commons, in Parliament assembled, feel it our duty humbly to approach your Majesty's throne, to record in the most solemn manner our fixed determination to maintain unimpaired and undisturbed the legislative union between Great Britain and Ireland...
