" " It is nature to communicate one's self : it is culture to receive what is communicated as it is given.
Strona 341 - Why delayest thou thy coming ? Lo ! the calm moon comes forth. The flood is bright in the vale. The rocks are grey on the steep. I see him not on the brow. His dogs come not before him with tidings of his near approach. Here I must sit alone! "Who lie on the beach beside me ? Are they my love and my brother ? Speak to me, O my friends.
Strona 342 - ... away like a dream: why should I stay behind? Here shall I rest with my friends, by the stream of the sounding rock. When night comes on the hill; when the loud winds arise; my ghost shall stand in the blast, and mourn the death of my friends. The hunter shall hear from his booth.
