'Tis a fearful thing in winter
-JAMES A. FIELDS.
15. Wah-wah-taysee, little firefly,
Little flitting white fire insect,
We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men
are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
-DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.
17. The wretched parents all that night
Went shouting far and wide:
Be good, sweet maid, and let who will be clever;
Do noble things, not dream them, all day long:
19. Our band is few but true and tried, our leader frank 20. Breathes there the man, with soul so dead,
and bold, The British soldier trembles when Marion's name is told.
Who never to himself hath said
21. Noon descends, and after noon
Autumn's evening meets me soon. 22. I love all that thou lovest,
Spirit of Delight !
And the starry night:
23. Man's inhumanity to man
Makes countless thousands mourn.
24. Oh many a shaft at random sent
Finds mark the archer little meant !
25. If we sit down at set of sun,
And count the things that we have done,
And, counting, find
One glance most kind,
Quotations Containing the Sounds of s and z
Who steals my purse steals trash: 'tis something,
nothing; 'Twas mine, 'tis his and has been slave to thousands.
2. Within the master's desk is seen,
Deep scarred by raps official.
3. Over the roofs of the pioneers
Gathers the moss of a hundred years.
4. And, sir, where American liberty raised its first voice,
and where its youth was nurtured and sustained, there it still lives in the strength of its manhood, and full of its original spirit.
5. In peace and in war we must spend and be spent in
the endless battle for right against wrong: deeds, not words alone shall save us.
6. Lord of the Universe! shield us and guide us,
Trusting Thee always through shadow and sun ! Thou hast united us, who shall divide us ?
Keep us, o keep us the many in one! -HOLMES.
7. I steal by lawns and grassy plots,
I slide by hazel covers;
That grow for happy lovers.
8. From my wings are shaken the dews that waken
The sweet buds every one,
9. Fair dewy roses brush against our faces,
KEATS. 10. O, softly on yon banks of haze
Her rosy face the summer lays !
11. They made some rude answer to the sentinel. There
was a dispute or perhaps a scuffle. Other soldiers heard the noise and ran hastily from the barracks to assist their comrades.
THE BOSTON MASSACRE,
12. Hark! hark! the lark at heaven's gate sings,
And Phoebus 'gins arise,
On chaliced flowers that lies:
To ope their golden eyes:
My lady sweet, arise;
It is twice blessed;
14. With the sunshine on thy face,
Through thy torn brim's jaunty grace.
15. As thus we sat in darkness,
Each one busy with his prayers,
As he staggered down the stairs.
As she took his icy hand,
Just the same as on the land ?” -JAMES FIELDS.
16. The year's at the spring
And day's at the morn;
17. Orpheus with his lute made trees
And the mountain tops that freeze
18. He who reigns within himself and rules passions, de
sires, and fears, is more than a king. -MILTON.
