Stran 429 - Refrain from these men, and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought: But if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God.
Stran 443 - Western nations at the close of the fifteenth and the beginning of the sixteenth century.
Stran 93 - Far, far aloof th' affrighted ravens sail ; The famish'd eagle screams, and passes by. Dear lost companions of my tuneful art, Dear as the light that visits these sad eyes, Dear as the ruddy drops that warm my heart, Ye died amidst your dying country's cries — No more I weep.

Stran 94 - The imperial ensign, which, full high advanced, Shone like a meteor streaming to the wind...
