341 psl. - So farewell hope, and with hope farewell fear, Farewell remorse : all good to me is lost ; Evil, be thou my good : by thee at least Divided empire with heaven's King I hold, By thee, and more than half perhaps will reign ; As man ere long and this new world shall know.
151 psl. - And my poor fool is hang'd! No, no, no life! Why should a dog, a horse, a rat, have life, And thou no breath at all? Thou'lt come no more, Never, never, never, never, never!

A short time after our arrival at the town, I was conducted, closely guarded, to the officer who was employed by the English Government to apprehend Thugs. A tall, noble-looking person he was, and from the severe glance he cast on me I thought my hour was come, and that ere night I should cease to exist.
183 psl. - Where is the man existing who can iay a word against Ameer Ali's honour, which ever has been and ever will remain pure and unsullied ? Have I ever broken a social tie ? ever been unfaithful or unkind to a comrade ? ever failed in my duty or in my trust ? ever neglected a rite or ceremony of my religion? I tell you, sahib, the man breathes not who could point his finger at me on any one of these points. And if you think on them, they are those which, if rigidly kept, gain for a man esteem and honour...
xiii psl. - ... the lines of road that pass by and branch off from them, with the knowledge and connivance of the two landholders by whose ancestors these groves had been planted ; I should have thought him a fool or a madman : and yet, nothing could have been more true. The bodies of a hundred travellers lie buried in and...
iv psl. - ... horrible work, and consequently the most dangerous and destructive. "Travellers seldom hold any communication with the towns through which they pass, more than for the purchase of the day's provisions : they sometimes enter them, but pitch their tents or lie under the trees which surround them; to gain any intelligence of a person's progress from village to village is therefore almost impossible.
