The Land and American Literature:  An Electronic Course Anthology
"Thine eyes shall see the light of distant skies;  
Yet, Cole! thy heart shall bear to Europe's strand  
A living image of our own bright land,  
Such as upon thy glorious canvas lies...."  

"Westward the star of empire takes its way."  

"I wish to speak a word for Nature, for absolute freedom  
and wildness, as contrasted with a freedom and culture  
merely civil,--to regard man as an inhabitant, or a part  
and parcel of Nature, rather than a member of society."
