Pàgina 4527 - ART thou poor, yet hast thou golden slumbers ? O sweet content ! Art thou rich, yet is thy mind perplexed ? O punishment ! Dost thou laugh to see how fools are vexed To add to golden numbers, golden numbers ? O sweet content ! O sweet, O sweet content !

Pàgina 4566 - I lay inactive. Then, like a chorus, the passion deepened; some greater interest was at stake, some mightier cause than ever yet the sword had pleaded, or trumpet had proclaimed.

Pàgina 4623 - Avast! nor don't think me a milksop so soft. To be taken for trifles aback; For they say there's a Providence sits up aloft, To keep watch for the life of poor Jack!
Pàgina 4528 - Golden slumbers kiss your eyes, Smiles awake you when you rise; Sleep pretty wantons do not cry, And I will sing a lullaby; Rock them, rock them, lullaby. Care is heavy, therefore sleep you; You are care, and care must keep you; Sleep pretty wantons, do not cry, And I will sing a lullaby; Rock them, rock them, lullaby.
