Seite 294 - She shall be lov'd and fear'd : her own shall bless her ; Her foes shake like a field of beaten corn, And hang their heads with sorrow. Good grows with her ! In her days every man shall eat in safety, Under his own vine, what he plants, and sing The merry songs of peace to all his neighbours...
Seite 101 - No free man shall be taken or imprisoned or dispossessed, or outlawed, or banished, or in any way destroyed, nor will we go upon him, nor send upon him, except by the legal judgment of his peers or by the law of the land.

Seite 512 - A people starved and stabbed in the untilled field ; An army, which liberticide and prey Makes as a two-edged sword to all who wield ; Golden and sanguine laws which tempt and slay ; Religion Christless, Godless — a book sealed ; A Senate — Time's worst statute unrepealed, — Are graves, from which a glorious Phantom may Burst, to illumine our tempestuous day.
