Robert Burns quotes - 10 of
Hear me, auld Hangie, for a wee,
An' let poor, damned bodies bee; ...
O thou, whatever title suit thee!
Auld Hornie, Satan, Nick, or Clootie,
Then you, ye auld, snick-drawing dog!
Ye cam to Paradise incog, ...
See Social-life and Glee sit down,
All joyous and unthinking, ...
O ye wha are sae guid yoursel,
Sae pious and sae holy, ...
Who made the heart, 'tis He alone
Decidedly can try us,
Then gently scan your brother Man,
Still gentler sister Woman; ...
Think, when your castigated pulse
Gies now and then a wallop, ...
What's done we partly may compute,
But know not what's resisted.
Had we never lov'd sae kindly,
Had we never lov'd sae blindly, ...
