36 ページ - Here woman reigns ; the mother, daughter, wife, Strews with fresh flowers the narrow way of life ; In the clear heaven of her delightful eye, An angel-guard of loves and graces lie ; Around her knees domestic duties meet, And fireside pleasures gambol at her feet. " Where shall that land, that spot of earth be found...
203 ページ - Never give up. Never give up ! there are chances and changes Helping the hopeful a hundred to one, And through the chaos High Wisdom arranges Ever success — if you'll only hope on ; Never give up ! for the wisest is boldest, Knowing that Providence mingles the cup, And of all maxims the best as the oldest, Is the true watchword of, Never give up!
