Стр. 170 - Tis not in mortals to command success, But we'll do more, Sempronius; we'll deserve it.
Стр. 264 - Among the rest, you have all I am worth, that is, my works : there are few things in them but what you have already seen, except the epistle of Eloisa to Abelard, in which you will find one passage, that I cannot tell whether to wish you should understand or not.
Стр. 260 - Diana is sung to have danced on the banks of Eurotas. The great lady still leads the dance, and is followed by a troop of young girls, who imitate her steps, and, if she sings, make up the chorus. The tunes are extremely gay and lively, yet with something in them wonderfully soft. The steps are varied according to the pleasure of her that leads the dance, but always in exact time, and infinitely more agreeable than any of our dances, at least in my opinion.
Стр. 298 - What are the gay parterre, the chequered shade, The morning bower, the evening colonnade, But soft recesses of uneasy minds, To sigh unheard in to the passing winds ? So the struck deer in some sequestered part Lies down to die, the arrow at his heart ; There stretched unseen in coverts hid from day, Bleeds drop by drop, and pants his life away.
Стр. 262 - People send to one another to know if any of their family has a mind to have the small•pox : they make parties for this purpose, and when they are met (commonly fifteen or sixteen together), the old woman comes with a nutshell full of the matter of the best sort of small-pox, and asks what vein you please to have opened.
Стр. 258 - I perceived that the ladies with the finest skins and most delicate shapes had the greatest share of my admiration, though their faces were sometimes less beautiful than those of their companions. To tell you the truth, I had wickedness enough to wish secretly that Mr. Jervas could have been there invisible.
Стр. 330 - I have five hundred pins and needles running into my heart. I try to console myself with a small damsel who is at present everything I like — but alas ! she is yet in a white frock. At fourteen she may run away with the butler.
Стр. 504 - Good Madam, when ladies are willing, A man must needs look like a fool; For me I would not give a shilling For one who would love out of rule. You should leave us to guess by your blushing, And not speak the matter so plain: 'Tis ours to write and be pushing, "Tis yours to affect a disdain.
Стр. 262 - The children or young patients play together all the rest of the day, and are in perfect health to the eighth. Then the fever begins to seize them, and they keep their beds two days, very seldom three. They have very rarely above twenty or thirty in their faces, which never mark ; and in eight days' time they are as well as before their illness.
