Seite 29 - Burn all the statutes and their shelves: They stir us up against our kind ; And worse, against ourselves. " We have a passion, make a law, Too false to guide us or control ! And for the law itself we fight In bitterness of soul. And, puzzled, blinded thus, we lose Distinctions that are plain and few : These find I graven on my heart : That tells me what to do.

Seite 153 - The Scots are poor, cries surly English pride. True is the charge ; nor by themselves denied. Are they not, then, in strictest reason clear, Who wisely come to mend their fortunes here?
