William Knox quotes

Oh! why should the spirit of mortal be proud?
Like a swift-fleeting meteor, a fast-flying cloud,
...
The hand of the king that the scepter hath borne;
The brow of the priest that the miter hath worn;
...
From the gilded saloon to the bier and the shroud--
Oh! why should the spirit of mortal be proud?
