Stran 31 - In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place ; and in the sky The larks, still -bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.
Stran 179 - There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed by the Creator into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being evolved.
Stran 148 - And that all disputes which might arise in future on the subject of the boundaries of the said United States may be prevented, it is hereby agreed and declared, that the following are and shall be their boundaries...
Stran 376 - Slavery discourages arts and manufactures. The poor despise labor when performed by slaves. They prevent the immigration of Whites, who really enrich and strengthen a country.

Stran 148 - Croix River to the highlands; along the said highlands which divide those rivers that empty themselves into the river St. Lawrence, from those which fall into the Atlantic Ocean, to the northwesternmost head of Connecticut River...
Stran 376 - This infernal traffic originated in the avarice of British merchants. The British GOvernment constantly checked the attempts of Virginia to put a stop to it. The present question concerns not the importing States alone, but the whole Union.
Stran 266 - The army will forage liberally on the country during the march. To this end, each brigade commander will organize a good and sufficient foraging party, under the command of one or more discreet officers, who will gather, near the route...
Stran 318 - Allons, enfants de la patrie, Le jour de gloire est arrivé ; Contre nous de la tyrannie L'étendard sanglant est levé, Entendez-vous dans les campagnes Mugir ces féroces soldats ? Ils viennent jusque dans vos bras Egorger vos fils, vos compagnes.
