Pàgina 79 - I stood at his head, and held it firm under my arm, one negro sup. porting the belly, and the other the tail. In this order we began to move slowly towards home, and reached it after resting ten times, for the snake was too heavy for us to support him without stopping to recruit our strength. As we proceeded onwards with him, he fought hard for freedom, but it was all in vain.
Pàgina 116 - Slow sinks, more lovely ere his race be run, Along Morea's hills the setting sun: Not, as in northern climes, obscurely bright, But one unclouded blaze of living light!
Pàgina 496 - THE law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never, with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually, make the comers the'reunto perfect. For then, would they not have ceased to be offered ? because that the worshippers, once purged, should have had no more conscience of sins.
Pàgina 401 - Crying and moaning till the stars Come out for company; He thinks of his brother and sister, Asleep in their safe warm bed; He thinks of his father and mother, Of himself as dying — and dead; And of how, when the night is over, They must come and find him at last : But he never thinks he can leave the place Where duty holds him fast.
