Stran 135 - God, give us men! A time like this demands Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and ready hands; Men whom the lust of office does not kill; Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy; Men who possess opinions and a will; Men who have honor; men who will not lie; Men who can stand before a demagogue And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking! Tall men, sun-crowned, who live above the fog In public duty and in private thinking...
Stran 140 - Dower'd with the hate of hate, the scorn of scorn, The love of love.
Stran 113 - There is no terror, Cassius, in your threats ; For I am arm'd so strong in honesty, That they pass by me as the idle wind, Which I respect not.
Stran 91 - That I must yield my body to the earth, And, by my fall, the conquest to my foe. Thus yields the cedar to the axe's edge, Whose arms gave shelter to the princely eagle, Under whose shade the ramping lion slept, Whose top branch overpeer'd Jove's spreading tree, And kept low shrubs from winter's powerful wind.
Stran 68 - I offer the resolutions which I send to the desk. The Clerk read as follows: Resolved, That the House has heard with profound sorrow of the death of Hon.
Stran 81 - It must exist in the man, in the subject, and in the occasion. Affected passion, intense expression, the pomp of declamation, all may aspire after it — they cannot reach it.
Stran 117 - I want to know who is friendly to the great Northwest, and who is not, for we are about making our last prayer here. The time is not far distant when instead of coming here and begging for our rights, we shall extend our hands and take the blessing. After 1860 we shall not be here as beggars.
Stran 68 - Senate communicate these resolutions to the House of Representatives. Resolved, That, as an additional mark of respect to the memory of the deceased, the Senate do now adjourn.
Stran 59 - That palter with us in a double sense ; That keep the word of promise to our ear, And break it to our hope.
Stran 79 - Washburn! above thy grave, we bow in tears! The generous friend, the unrelenting foe, In halls of state who stood for many years. Like fabled knight, thy visage all aglow! Receiving, giving sternly, blow for blow! ****** "Champion of right! But from Eternity's far shore Thy spirit will return to join the strife no more. Rest! Statesman, rest! Thy troubled life is o'er.
