Página 47 - And surely your blood of your lives will I require: at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man. 6 Whoso sheddeth man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
Página 85 - When all is done, upon the tomb is seen, Not what he was, but what he should have been : But the poor dog, in life the firmest friend, The first to welcome, foremost to defend, Whose honest heart is still his master's own, Who labours, fights, lives, breathes for him alone...
Página 84 - WHEN some proud son of man returns to earth, Unknown to glory, but upheld by birth, The sculptor's art exhausts the pomp of woe, And storied urns record who rests below • When all is done, upon the tomb is seen, Not what he was, but what he should have been...
Página 85 - Who knows thee well must quit thee with disgust, Degraded mass of animated dust ! Thy love is lust, thy friendship all a cheat, Thy smiles hypocrisy, thy words deceit ! By nature vile, ennobled but by name, Each kindred brute might bid thee blush for shame.

Página 85 - Denied in heaven the soul he held on earth : While man, vain insect ! hopes to be forgiven, And claims himself a sole exclusive heaven. Oh man ! thou feeble tenant of an hour, Debased by slavery, or corrupt by power, Who knows thee well must quit thee with disgust, Degraded mass of animated dust!

Página 83 - Pollio, et incipient magni procedere menses, te duce, si qua manent sceleris vestigia nostri, irrita perpetua solvent formidine terras, ille deum vitam accipiet, divisque videbit 15 permixtos heroas, et ipse videbitur illis, pacatumque reget patriis virtutibus orbem.
Página 84 - Robustus quoque jam tauris juga solvet arator; Nec varios discet mentiri lana colores ; Ipse sed in pratis aries jam suave rubenti Murice, jam croceo mutabit vellera luto ; Sponte sua sandyx pascentis vestiet agnos. 45 ' Talia saecla,' suis dixerunt, ' currite,' fusis Concordes stabili fatorum numine Parcae.
