Halaman 238 - Farewell, happy fields, Where joy for ever dwells! Hail, horrors! hail, Infernal world! And thou, profoundest Hell, Receive thy new possessor! one who brings A mind not to be changed by place or time!
Halaman 391 - I will support, protect, and defend the Constitution and Government of the United States against all enemies, whether domestic or foreign, and that I will bear true faith, allegiance, and loyalty to the same, any ordinance, resolution, or law of any State Convention, or Legislature, to the contrary notwithstanding ; and, further, that I do this with a full determination, pledge, and purpose, without any mental reservation or evasion whatsoever ; and, further, that I will well and faithfully perform...
Halaman 345 - Flag of the free heart's hope and home, By angel hands to valor given ! Thy stars have lit the welkin dome, And all thy hues were born in heaven. Forever float that standard sheet ! Where breathes the foe but falls before us, With Freedom's soil beneath our feet, And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us ? JOSEPH RODMAN DRAKE.
Halaman 301 - States, but, being moved and seduced by the instigation of the devil, and not having the fear of God before his eyes...

Such authority is believed to be utterly repugnant both to the principles upon which the general government is constituted, and to the objects which it was expressly formed to attain.
Halaman 163 - Make thy shadow as the night in the midst of the noonday; hide the outcasts; bewray not him that wandereth. Let mine outcasts dwell with thee, Moab; be thou a covert to them from the face of the spoiler.
Halaman 334 - DID Christ o'er sinners weep, And shall our cheeks be dry? Let floods of penitential grief Burst forth from every eye. 2 The Son of God in tears Angels with wonder see: Be thou astonished, O my soul, He shed those tears for thee. 3 He wept that we might weep Each sin demands a tear ; In Heaven alone no sin is found, And there's no weeping there.
Halaman 413 - Improve, then, young gentlemen, the superior advantages you here enjoy. Let not a day pass without exercising your powers of speech. There is no power like that of oratory. Caesar controlled men by exciting their fears ; Cicero, by captivating their affections and swaying their passions. The influence of the one perished with its author ; that of the other continues to this day.
