Стр. 291 - That fop, whose pride affects a patron's name, Yet absent, wounds an author's honest fame : Who can your merit selfishly approve, And show the sense of it without the love ; Who has the vanity to call you friend, Yet wants the honour, injur'd, to defend ; Who tells whate'er you think, whate'er you say, And, if he lie not, must at least betray : Who to the Dean, and silver bell can swear, And sees at Canons what was never there...
Стр. 275 - I believe I never told you how happy I am in an excellent Father and Mother, very plain people you may be sure, for they are farmers, but of a turn of mind that might have honoured any rank and any education.
Стр. 275 - With very tolerable, but in no degree affluent circumstances, their generosity was such, they never regarded any expense that was in their power, and almost out of it, in whatever concerned the welfare of their children. We are three brothers of us. The eldest settled very reputably in their own way, and the youngest in the Birmingham trade. For myself, a poor scholar, as you know, I am almost ashamed to own to you how solicitous they always were to furnish me with all the opportunities of the best...
Стр. 277 - who was less known in his life-time, from that obscure situation to which the caprice of fortune oft condemns the most accomplished characters, than his highest merit deserved,
Стр. 321 - Bishop Philpott looked at him for a moment and then said, ' No, you must go, you must do what you are told.' He added, ' But let me tell you that a bishop's life is a happy one. It is full of troubles, full of hard work, but it has got this advantage — it gives you endless opportunities of doing little acts of kindness and of saying little words of sympathy which go a great way from the fact of your position.
Стр. 277 - I had the honour to be intrusted with a part of your education, and it was my duty to contribute all I could to the success of it. But the task was easy and pleasant. I had only to cultivate that good sense, and those generous virtues, which you brought with you to the University, and which had already grown up to some maturity under the care of a man, to whom we had both of us been extremely obliged; and who possessed every talent of a perfect institutor of youth in a degree, which, I believe, has...
Стр. 150 - Euchologia : or, The Doctrine* of Practical Praying ; being a Legacy left to his daughters in private, directing them to such manifold uses of our Common Prayer Book, as may satisfy upon all occasions, without looking after new lights from extemporal flashes," dedicated to his daughters, Sarah Hodges and Elizabeth Sutton, London, 1655, Svo.
Стр. 283 - Received a gracious letter from his Majesty the next morning, by a special messenger from Windsor, with the offer of the See of Worcester, in the room of Bishop North, to be translated to Winchester, and of the Clerkship of the Closet, in the room of the late Bishop of Winchester.
Стр. 275 - ... mind that might have honoured any rank and any education. With very tolerable, but in no degree affluent circumstances, their generosity was such, they never regarded any expence that was in their power, and almost out of it, in whatever concerned the welfare of their children. We are three brothers of us. The eldest settled very reputably in their own way ; and the youngest in the Birmingham trade. For myself, a poor scholar, as you know, I am almost...
Стр. 270 - Grenville distinguished two kinds of bishoprics — 'bishoprics of business for men of abilities and learning, and bishoprics of ease for men of family and fashion'. Again with regard to nepotism (a form of favouritism objectionable so long as it remains merely an inept approach to heredity), a similar parallelism can be traced between Church and State. Lord Sandwich wrote, in August 1 764, to a naval officer about to quit in disgust at having been passed over...
