الصفحة 16 - My brave associates — partners of my toil, my feelings, and my fame ! — can Rolla's words add vigour to the virtuous energies which inspire your hearts? No! You have judged, as I have, the foulness of the crafty plea by which these bold invaders would delude you. Your generous spirit has compared, as mine has, the motives which, in a war like this, can animate their minds and ours.
الصفحة 16 - They boast they come but to improve our state, enlarge our thoughts, and free us from the yoke of error ! Yes : they will give enlightened freedom to our minds ! who are themselves the slaves of passion, avarice, and pride. They offer us their protection : yes, such protection as vultures give to lambs — covering and devouring them ! They call on us to barter all of good we have inherited and proved, for the desperate chance of something better which they promise. Be our plain answer this : The...
الصفحة 38 - Power Supreme! shall be for my wife and child ! — Grant them to dwell in innocence and peace; grant health and purity of mind — all else is worthless. [Enters the cavern.
الصفحة 9 - Piz. Hear me, old man. Even now we march against the Peruvian army. We know there is a secret path that leads to your stronghold among the rocks : guide us to that, and name thy reward. If wealth be thy wish Oro. Ha ! ha ! ha ! Piz.

Tell your invaders this, and tell them, too, we seek no change : and, least of all, such change as they would bring us.
الصفحة 7 - No ! I curse your purpose, homicides ! I curse the bond of blood by which you are united. May fell division, infamy, and rout, defeat your projects and rebuke your hopes ! On you, and on your children, be the peril of the innocent blood which shall be shed this day...
الصفحة 40 - I am as a blighted plantain, standing alone amid the sandy desert ; nothing seeks or lives beneath my shelter. Thou art a husband, and a father ; the being of a lovely wife and helpless infant hangs upon thy life.
الصفحة 39 - Oh ! but if that comrade was at thy prison gate — and should there be told thy fellowsoldier dies at sunrise, — yet thou shalt not for a moment see him — nor shalt thou bear his dying blessing to his poor children or his wretched wife, — what wouldst thou think of him, who thus could drive thy comrade from the door ? Rol.
