It has gone far and wide, and high and low
, and left scarcely a mortal roof unvisited.
They have both come back, miss, and have been tramping high and low
So we searched high and low
, for a matter of two hours, but never a barber-shop could we see.
The music of high and low
instruments immediately became audible from the interior of the stage; the tapestry was raised; four personages, in motley attire and painted faces, emerged from it, climbed the steep ladder of the theatre, and, arrived upon the upper platform, arranged themselves in a line before the public, whom they saluted with profound reverences; then the symphony ceased.
The whole city, high and low
, the quays bordering the Patapsco, the ships lying in the basins, disgorged a crowd drunk with joy, gin, and whisky.
Good and evil, and rich and poor, and high and low
, and all names of values: weapons shall they be, and sounding signs, that life must again and again surpass itself!
