Oh! might my ill-past hours return again! No more, as then, should Sloth around me throw Her soul-enslaving, leaden chain! No more the precious time would I employ In giddy revells, or in thoughtless joy, A present joy producing future woe. But o'er the midnight Lamp I'd love to pore, I'd seek with care fair Learning's depths to sound, And gather scientific Lore.

When you lov'd me, and I lov'd you, Then both of us were born anew.
Now that the frequent pangs my frame assail, Now that my sleepless eyes are sunk and dim, And seas of Pain seem waving through each limb--Ah what can all Life's gilded scenes avail?
The longer I abstained the higher my spirits were, the keener my enjoyment--till the moment, the direful moment, arrived when my pulse began to fluctuate, my heart to palpitate, and such a dreadful falling abroad, as it were, of my whole frame, such intolerable restlessness, and incipient bewilderment, that in the last of my several attempts to abandon the dire poison, I exclaimed in agony, which I now repeat in seriousness and solemnity, "I am too poor to hazard this."
Keep moving! Steam, or Gas, or Stage, Hold, cabin, steerage, hencoop's cage--Tour, Journey, Voyage, Lounge, Ride, Walk, Skim, Sketch, Excursion, Travel-talk--For move you must! 'Tis now the rage, The law and fashion of the Age.
He prayeth best, who loveth best All things both great and small; For the God who loveth us, He made and loveth all.
