Seite 138 - There runs not a drop of my blood in the veins of any living creature. This called on me for revenge. I have sought it ; I have killed many ; I have fully glutted my vengeance ; for my country 1 rejoice at the beams of peace.
Seite 246 - There is no antidote against the opium of time, which temporally considereth all things ; our fathers find their graves in our short memories, and sadly tell us how we may be buried in our survivors. Gravestones tell truth scarce forty years : generations pass while some trees stand, and old families last not three oaks.
Seite 138 - I appeal to any white man to say, if ever he entered Logan's cabin hungry, and he gave him not meat ; if ever he came cold and naked, and he clothed him not?
Seite 139 - Accursed Brandt ! he left of all my tribe Nor man, nor child, nor thing of living birth: No ! not the dog, that watched my household hearth, Escaped, that night of blood, upon our plains ! All perished ! — I alone am left on earth ! To whom nor relative nor blood remains, No ! — not a kindred drop that runs in human veins t XVIII.
Seite 98 - Tis true he shrank from men, even of his nation: When they built up unto his darling trees. He moved some hundred miles off, for a station Where there were fewer houses and more ease. The inconvenience of civilization Is, that you neither can be pleased nor please ,But where he met the individual man, He show'd himself as kind as mortal can.
Seite 126 - You are a Member of Parliament, and one of that Majority which has doomed my Country to Destruction. — You have begun to burn our Towns, and murder our People. — Look upon your Hands ! — They are stained with the Blood of your Relations ! You and I were long friends : — You are now my Enemy, — and ' I am, yours,
Seite 191 - Idlesse it seem, hath its morality. If from society we learn to live, Tis solitude should teach us how to die ; It hath no flatterers ; vanity can give No hollow aid ; alone — man with his God must strive : XXXIV.
Seite 396 - The premonitory symptoms of despotism are upon us ; and if Congress do not apply an instantaneous and effective remedy, the fatal collapse will soon come on, and we shall die — ignobly die ! base, mean, and abject slaves' — the scorn and contempt of mankind — unpitied, unwept, unmourned ! ON THE STATE OF THE COUNTRY.
Seite 393 - WE are in the midst of a revolution, hitherto bloodless, but rapidly tending towards a total change of the pure republican character of the government, and to the concentration of all power in the hands of one man.
Seite 245 - WILD was the day ; the wintry sea Moaned sadly on New England's strand, When first the thoughtful and the free, Our fathers, trod the desert land. They little thought how pure a light, With years, should gather round that day ; How love should keep their memories bright, How wide a realm their sons should sway. Green are their bays ; but greener still Shall round their spreading fame be wreathed, And regions, now untrod, shall thrill With reverence when their names are breathed.
