A soldier, an' please your reverence, said I, prays as often (of his own accord) as a parson ; and when he is fighting for his king, and for his own life, and for his honour too, he has the most reason to pray to God of any one in the whole world. 'Twas well said of thee, Trim, said my uncle Toby. But when a soldier,...
83 ページ - He understood b' implicit faith : Whatever Skeptic could inquire for; For every WHY he had a WHEREFORE: Knew more than forty of them do, As far as words and terms could go.

180 ページ - How much unlike that gracefu' mien And manly looks of my Highland laddie ! 0 my bonny, bonny Highland laddie ! My handsome, charming Highland laddie ! May heaven still guard, and love reward, Our Lawland lass and her Highland laddie ! If I were free at will to chuse To be the wealthiest Lawland lady, I'd take young Donald without trews, With bonnet blew and belted plaidy.
244 ページ - When all the blandishments of life are gone, The coward sneaks to death, the brave live on.

224 ページ - But, triumph not, ye peace-enamoured few ! Fire, Nature, Genius, never dwelt with you ! For you no fancy consecrates the scene Where rapture uttered vows, and wept between ; 'Tis yours, unmoved to sever and to meet ; No pledge is sacred, and no home is sweet...
