Lady Susan - LETTER VII - LADY SUSAN VERNON TO MRS. JOHNSON Lady Susan - LETTER VII - LADY SUSAN VERNON TO MRS. JOHNSON

Lady Susan - LETTER VII - LADY SUSAN VERNON TO MRS. JOHNSON
Churchhill. My dear Alicia,--You are very good in taking notice of Frederica, and I am grateful for it as a mark of your friendship; but as I cannot have any doubt of the warmth of your affection, I am far from exacting so heavy a sacrifice. She is a stupid girl, and has nothing to recommend her. I would not, therefore, on my account, have you encumber one moment of your precious time by sending for her to Edward Street, especially as every visit is so much deducted from the grand affair of education,...

Satisfaction Satisfaction

Satisfaction
ON READING "NOT ONE DISSATISFIED," BY WALT WHITMAN GOD spare the day when I am satisfied! Enough is truly likened to a feast that leaves man satiate. The sluggishness of fulness comes apace; the dulness of a mind that knows all things. The lack of every sweet desire; no new sensation for the soul! To want no more? What vile estate is that? What holds the morrow for the soul that’s satisfied? What holds the future for the mind content? Is aspiration worthless? Is much-abused ambition...

BOOK III : CHAPTER V - THE VOICE OF THE DEADWhen Meriamun the Queen had watched the chariot of the Wanderer till it was lost in the dust of the desert, she passed down from the Palace roof to the solitude of her chamber.Here she sat in her chamber till the darkness gathered, as the evil thoughts gathered in her heart, that was rent with love of him whom she had won but to lose. Things had gone ill with her, to little purpose she had sinned after such a fashion as may not be forgiven. Yet there was... Long Stories - Post by : Dave_Espino - Author : H.

The Song Of The Soldier-born The Song Of The Soldier-born

The Song Of The Soldier-born
Give me the scorn of the stars and a peak defiant; Wail of the pines and a wind with the shout of a giant; Night and a trail unknown and a heart reliant. Give me to live and love in the old, bold fashion; A soldier's billet at night and a soldier's ration; A heart that leaps to the fight with a soldier's passion. For I hold as a simple faith there's no denying: The trade of a soldier's the only trade worth plying; The death of a soldier's the only death worth dying. So let me go and leave...

The Carlyles
(I was talking with a newspaper man the other day who seemed to think that the fact that Mrs. Carlyle threw a teacup at Mr. Carlyle should be given to the public merely as a fact. But a fact presented to people without the proper--or even, if necessary, without the improper--human being to go with it does not mean anything and does not really become alive or caper about in people's minds. But what I want and what I believe most people want when a fact is being presented is one or two touches that... Poems - Post by : sean7 - Author : Franklin P. Adams - Read : 2181

Dearest of all, whose tenderness could rise To share all sorrow and to soothe all pain;The blessings breathed for thee with weeping eyes Will come to thee as sunshine after rain.My spirit clings to thine, dear, in this hour; Thy sorrow touches me as though 'twere mine;And pleading prayers for thee shall have the power To draw down comfort from my Lord and thine.For thou hast felt the sorrow and the care Of other lives, as though they were thine own;And grateful prayers, for a memorial are Laid...
