Seite 448 - Let it flame or fade, and the war roll down like a wind, We have proved we have hearts in a cause, we are noble still, And myself have awaked, as it seems, to the better mind ; It is better to fight for the good, than to rail at the ill...
Seite 314 - God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honor to that part which lacked : that there should be no schism in the body ; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
