Pagina 53 - Countrymen, My heart doth joy that yet, in all my life, I found no man but he was true to me. I shall have glory by this losing day, More than Octavius and Mark Antony By this vile conquest shall attain unto. So fare you well at once; for Brutus...
Pagina 38 - What woman needs is not as a woman to act or rule, but as a nature to grow, as an intellect to discern, as a soul to live freely and unimpeded, to unfold such powers as were given her when we left our common home.
Pagina 52 - You are my true and honourable wife, As dear to me as are the ruddy drops That visit my sad heart.
Pagina 327 - That hangs his head, and a' that ; The coward slave — we pass him by ! We dare be poor for a' that! For a' that, and a' that, Our toils obscure, and a' that ! The rank is but the Guinea's stamp; The Man 's the gowd for a

They make a rule ; they say from observation, what can and cannot be. In vain ! Nature provides exceptions to every rule. She sends women to battle, and sets Hercules spinning; she enables women to bear immense burdens, cold, and frost ; she enables the man, who feels maternal love, to nourish his infant like a mother. Of late she...
