第 304 頁 - Thoughts hardly to be packed Into a narrow act, Fancies that broke through language and escaped; All I could never be, All, men ignored in me, This, I was worth to God, whose wheel the pitcher shaped.
第 xiv 頁 - How beautiful to see Once more a shepherd of mankind indeed, Who loved his charge, but never loved to lead; One whose meek flock the people joyed to be, Not lured by any cheat of birth, But by his clear-grained human worth, And brave old wisdom of sincerity!

第 x 頁 - Her wisest Scholars, those who understood The deeper teaching of her mystic tome, And offered their fresh lives to make it good : No lore of Greece or Rome, No science peddling with the names of things, 20 Or reading stars to find...
