Page 52 - Come, pensive nun, devout and pure, Sober, steadfast, and demure, All in a robe of darkest grain, Flowing with majestic train, And sable stole of cypress lawn, Over thy decent shoulders drawn. Come, but keep thy wonted state, With even step and musing gait, And looks commercing with the skies, Thy rapt soul sitting in thine eyes...

Page 129 - I make to it an annual visit. I carry my children to it, to teach them the hardships endured by the generations which have gone before them.

Page 20 - Them who are born to serve her and obey ; Binding herself by statute to secure For all the children whom her soil maintains . The rudiments of letters, and inform The mind with moral and religious truth, Both understood and practised, — so that none, However destitute, be left to droop By timely culture unsustained ; or run Into a wild disorder ; or be forced To drudge through a weary life without the help Of intellectual implements and tools ; A savage horde among the civilized, A servile band...
Page 57 - Learning must be had, but in the second place, as subservient only to greater qualities. Seek out somebody that may know how discreetly to frame his manners: place him in hands where you may, as much as possible, secure his innocence, cherish and nurse up the good and gently correct and weed out any bad inclinations, and settle in him good habits.
