Стр. 353 - Or redeem form or frame from the merciless surge ; But the white foam of waves shall thy winding-sheet be And winds in the midnight of winter thy dirge. On beds of green sea-flower thy limbs shall be laid, Around thy white bones...
Стр. 274 - I behold like a Spanish great galleon and an English man-of-war. Master Coleridge, like the former, was built far higher in learning, solid, but slow in his performances. CVL, with the English man-of-war, lesser in bulk, but lighter in sailing, could turn with all tides, tack about, and take advantage of all winds, by the quickness of his wit and invention.
Стр. 352 - Tis the lightning's red glare, painting hell on the sky ! 'Tis the crashing of thunders, the groan of the sphere .' He springs from his hammock — he flies to the deck — Amazement confronts him with images dire — Wild winds and mad waves drive the vessel a wreck — The masts fly in splinters — the shrouds are on fire ! Like mountains the billows tremendously swell : In vain the lost wretch calls on mercy to save ; Unseen hands of spirits are ringing his knell, And the death-angel flaps his...
Стр. 243 - The matter of fact is, that a classical scholar of twenty-three or twenty-four is a man principally conversant with works of imagination. His feelings are quick, his fancy lively, and his taste good. Talents for speculation and original inquiry he has none, nor has he formed the invaluable habit of pushing things up to their first principles, or of collecting dry and unamusing facts as the materials for reasoning.
Стр. 242 - Another misfortune of classical learning, as taught in England, is, that scholars have come, in process of time, and from the effects of association, to love the instrument better than the end; not the luxury which the difficulty encloses, but the difficulty; not the filbert, but the shell; not what may be read in Greek, but Greek itself.
Стр. 346 - They have a government among themselves, similar to that of the bees and ants ; and when the (Sultan Jerraad) king of the locusts rises, the whole body follow him, not one solitary straggler being left behind to witness the devastation.
Стр. 243 - ... often make no figure in the world; and why other lads, who are passed over without notice, turn out to be valuable, important men. The test established in the world, is widely different from that established in a place which is presumed to be a preparation for the world; and the head of a...
Стр. 256 - It was then considered as the extinction of a virulent and implacable enemy ; it is now viewed as the fall of a great warrior, a penetrating statesman, and a mighty prince. It then excited universal joy and congratulation, as a prelude to the close of a merciless war ; it now awakens sober reflections on the instability of empire, the peculiar destiny of the aboriginal race, and the inscrutable decrees of Heaven. The patriotism of the man was then overlooked in the cruelty of the savage ; and little...
Стр. 241 - Englishman, addicted to the pursuit of knowledge, draws — his beau ideal, of human nature — his top and consummation of man's powers — is a knowledge of the Greek language. His object is not to reason, to imagine, or to invent ; but to conjugate, decline, and derive. The situations of imaginary glory which he draws for himself, are the detection of an anapaest in the wrong place, or the restoration of a dative case which Cranzius had passed over, and the never-dying Ernesti failed to observe.
