Virginibus Puerisque Memories and Portraits

By: Robert Louis Stevenson

Excerpt: My Dear William Ernest Henley, We are all busy in this world building Towers of Babel; and the child of our imaginations is always a changeling when it comes from nurse. This is not only true in the greatest, as of wars and folios, but in the least also, like the trifling volume in your hand. Thus I began to write these papers with a definite end: I was to be the Advocates, not hope Diaboli, butjuventutis; I was to state temperately the beliefs of youth as oppos...

Reply to Lord Byron's Fare Thee Well

By: Mary Cockle

OH stay thy dang'rous pen—nor seek to move, With the false pleadings of repentant love! Wake not again the retrospective sigh, Or the wild tear of trembling agony, Taught by THY hand in bitterness to flow From the FULL chalice of domestic woe! Can HE, who spurn'd affection's sacred chains, Who scorns all laws, and whom no fear restrains; Who, coldly vicious, whilst the nuptial flow'r Shed its chaste beauties o'er the bridal hour, Left its rich graces, blighted and forlor...

Selected Lead Articles from the Dawn

By: Dora Falconer

Excerpt: ?WOMAN is not uncompleted man, but diverse,? says Tennyson, and being diverse why should she not have her journal in which her divergent hopes, aims and opinions may have representation. Every eccentricity of belief, and every variety of bias in mankind allies itself with a printing?machine, and gets its singularities bruited about in type, but where is the printing ink champion of mankind?s better half? There has hitherto been no trumpet through which the conce...

Camilla

By: Fanny Burney D'Arblay

THE historian of human life finds less of difficulty and of intricacy to develop, in its accidents and adventures, than the investigator of the human heart in its feelings and its changes. In vain may Fortune wave her many-coloured banner, alternately regaling and dismaying, with hues that seem glowing with all the creation's felicities, or with tints that appear stained with ingredients of unmixt horrors; her most rapid vicissitudes, her most unassimilating eccentriciti...

The Apology

By: Xenophon

THE APOLOGY OF SOCRATES: [1] Among the reminiscences of Socrates, none, as it seems to me, is more deserving of record than the counsel he took with himself [2] (after being cited to appear before the court), not only with regard to his defence, but also as to the ending of his life. Others have written on this theme, and all without exception have touched upon [3] the lofty style of the philosopher, [4] which may be taken as a proof that the language used by Socrates wa...
