    ’T is always morning somewhere in the world. 1 
          Orion. Book iii. Canto ii. (1843).
                    A sweet content
Passing all wisdom or its fairest flower.
          Orion. Book iii. Canto ii. (1843).
    The wisdom of mankind creeps slowly on,
Subject to every doubt that can retard
Or fling it back upon an earlier time.
          Orion. Book iii. Canto ii. (1843).
    Ye rigid Plowmen! Bear in mind
  Your labor is for future hours.
Advance! spare not! nor look behind!
  Plow deep and straight with all your powers!
          The Plow.
Note 1.
