220. oldal - Turn, Fortune, turn thy wheel with smile or frown; With that wild wheel we go not up or down ; Our hoard is little, but our hearts are great. ' Smile and we smile, the lords of many lands; Frown and we smile, the lords of our own hands; For man is man and master of his fate.
14. oldal - I ain't much of a hand at speechifying, through allays havin' bin in the carpenter's crew ; but my feelin's is the same, and I am uncommon obliged to you, sir, for givin' me this chance, and so the Cap'en can tell, as has often spoke up for me before, when the wind's bin pretty stiff up above," and he rather lowered his voice as he indicated above to mean Sharrows. " Ah ! " said the Captain, " that's when you've been splicing the main brace, Joe ; but we mustn't have any more of that now. You must...
