I will go on till my legs fail, and I'll lie down and die
somewhere, and shall at last reach that eternal, quiet haven, where there is neither sorrow nor sighing.
I felt I could drag myself but little farther; pretty soon, I must lie down and die
on these wet mountains like a sheep or a fox, and my bones must whiten there like the bones of a beast.
One was to save himself, and the other to lie down and die
if we live to reach the country once again, if we get clear of these dreadful places, though it is only to lie down and die
, with what a grateful heart I shall thank God for so much mercy
He should have taken her away, even if it were to lie down and die
of starvation in the gutters of Chicago's streets
I will obey you like your wretched slave, even if it is to lie down and die
Having found it, I shall bear it to a certain cavern that I wot of, and there, grasping it in my arms, lie down and die
, and keep it buried with me forever.
Were it not better to lie down and die
by your side than to return safe and say this to Dorcas?
