Without the shepherd's dog, the whole of the open mountainous land in Scotland would not be worth a sixpence.
Musical cherub, soar, singing, away! Then, when the gloaming comes, Low in the heather blooms Sweet will thy welcome and bed of love be! Emblem of happiness, Blest is thy dwelling-place O, to abide in the desert with thee!
What is the life of a man more than the life of a lamb, or any guiltless animal?
The daisy is fair, the day-lily rare, The bud o' the rose as sweet as it's bonnie.
Nothing in the world delights a truly religious people so much, as consigning them to eternal damnation.
That undefined and mingled hum, Voice of the desert never dumb!
Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush;
We'll over the Border and gi'e them a brush;
There's somebody there we'll teach better behaviour.
Hey, Johnnie lad, cock up your beaver!
A shepherd may be a very able, trusty, and good shepherd, without a sweetheart-better, perhaps, than with one. But what is he without his dog?
The private memoirs and confessions of a justified sinner.
Bird of the wilderness,
Blithesome and cumberless,
Sweet be thy matin o'er moorland and lea!
Where the pools are bright and deep
Where the gray trout lies asleep,
Up the river and o'er the lea
That's the way for Billy and me.
O, love, love, love!
Love is like a dizziness;
It winna let a poor body
Gang about his biziness!
We'll o'er the water, we'll o'er the sea,
We'll o'er the water to Charlie;
Come weal, come woe, we'll gather and go,
And live and die wi' Charlie.
