Стр. 35 - Out of the bowels of the harmless earth, Which many a good tall fellow had destroy'd So cowardly ; and but for these vile guns He would himself have been a soldier.
Стр. 35 - Shall I wasting in Despair, Die because a woman's fair? Or make pale my cheeks with care, Cause another's rosy are? Be she fairer than the Day, Or the Flowery Meads in May; If she be not so to me, What care I, how fair she be.
Стр. 184 - ... a beautiful golden wig (the Duchesse never liked me to play with her hair) was on a block close by, and on another table was a set of teeth, d'une blaiieheur eblouissante.
Стр. 7 - Tell fortune of her blindness, Tell nature of decay, Tell friendship of unkindness, Tell justice of delay. And if the'y will reply, Then give them all the lie. Tell arts they have no soundness, But vary by esteeming, Tell schools they want profoundness, And stand too much on seeming. If arts and schools reply, Give arts and schools the lie. Tell faith it's fled the city, Tell how the country erreth, Tell, manhood shakes off pity, Tell, virtue least preferreth.
Стр. 32 - The balls of his broad eyes rolled in his head, And glared betwixt a yellow and a red ; He looked a lion with a gloomy stare, And o'er his eyebrows hung his matted hair ; Big-boned, and large of limbs, with sinews strong, Broad-shouldered, and his arms were round and long.
Стр. 92 - What a rare gift, by the by, is that of manners ! how difficult to define — how much more difficult to impart ! Better for a man to possess them, than wealth, beauty, or even talent, if it fall short of genius — they will more than supply all.
Стр. 324 - I know not why this study has been termed uninteresting. No sooner had I entered upon its consideration, than I could scarcely tear myself from it.
Стр. 134 - It is good to be merry and wise, It is good to be honest and true ; It is good to be off with the old love Before you are on with the new.
Стр. 11 - Latin verses in half an hour; I could construe, without an English translation, all the easy Latin authors, and many -of the difficult ones, with it: I could read Greek fluently, and even translate it through the medium of a Latin version at the bottom of the page.
