Stran 74 - Boy ! let yon liquid ruby flow, And bid thy pensive heart be glad, Whate'er the frowning zealots say : — Tell them their Eden cannot show A stream so clear as Rocnabad, A bower so sweet as Mosellay.

All these are the friends of the good men and enemies of the bad men.
Stran 81 - O MAN ! WHOSOEVER THOU ART, AND WHENSOEVER THOU COMEST (FOR COME I KNOW THOU WILT), I AM CYRUS, THE FOUNDER OF THE PERSIAN EMPIRE, ENVY ME NOT THE LITTLE EARTH THAT COVERS MY BODY.
