Страница 47 - Thou, too, sail on, O Ship of State! Sail on, O UNION, strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging breathless on thy fate! We know what Master laid thy keel, What Workmen wrought thy ribs of steel, Who made each mast, and sail, and rope, What anvils rang, what hammers beat, In what a forge, and what a heat Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Страница 15 - We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.

Страница 62 - Gladstone says general preparation for extempore speaking has "a double basis compounded as follows : first, of a wide and thorough general education, and second, of the habit of constant and searching reflection.
Страница 75 - ... should make themselves agreeable, whatever else they may do. To be agreeable, it is not necessary to be amusing; an essay may be thoroughly delightful without a single witticism, while a monotone of jokes soon grows tedious.
