第 36 頁 - Whoso would be a man must be a nonconformist. He who would gather immortal palms must not be hindered by the name of goodness, but must explore if it be goodness. Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.
第 8 頁 - Heaven lies about us in our infancy. Shades of the prison-house begin to close Upon the growing boy; But he beholds the light and whence it flows, He sees it in his joy. The youth who daily farther from the East Must travel, still is Nature's priest, And, by the vision splendid, Is on his way attended. At length the man perceives it die away And fade into the light of common day.

Let claws of lightning clutch me From summer's groaning cloud, Or ever malice touch me, And glory make me proud.

第 160 頁 - TWO. FAUSTINA hath the fairer face, And Phyllida the feater grace ; Both have mine eye enriched: This sings full sweetly with her voice ; Her fingers make as sweet a noise: 5 Both have mine ear bewitched. Ah me ! sith Fates have so provided, My heart, alas, must be divided.
