Page 24 - Speak gently to the little child, — Its love be sure to gain ; Teach it, in accents soft and mild, It may not long remain.

Page 230 - Of this at least I feel assured, that there is no such thing as forgetting possible to the mind; a thousand accidents may and will interpose a veil between our present consciousness and the secret inscriptions on the mind; accidents of the same sort will also rend away this veil; but alike, whether veiled or unveiled, the inscription remains for ever...
