Стр. 140 - When the ear heard him then it blessed him, and when the eye saw him it gave witness to him : Because he delivered the poor that cried, and the fatherless, and him that had none to help him. The blessing of him that was ready to perish came upon him: and he caused the widow's heart to sing for joy.
Стр. 91 - And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you ; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
Стр. 91 - Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth ; and the fear of you, and the dread of you, shall be upon every beast of the earth...
Стр. 110 - So wastes the vigour of my days. And soon our deaths will prove, I guess, The triumph of unthankfulness. A lass, forlorn for lack of grace, My kindly pity first did move ; And in a little moment's space, This pity did engender love. And now my death must prove, I guess, The triumph of unthankfulness. For now she rules me with her look, And round me winds her harlot chain ; Whilst by a strange enchantment struck, • My nobler will recoils in vain. And soon my death will prove, I guess, The triumph...
Стр. 109 - How yonder ivy courts the oak, And clips it with a false embrace ! So I abide a wanton's yoke, And yield me to a smiling face. And both our deaths will prove, I guess, The triumph of unthankful ness.
Стр. 153 - Arthur, had unexpectedly descended amongst a company of modern sportsmen. On all occasions the Cervantic turn of his humour was singularly heightened by his researches in antiquarian knowledge. It is impossible to consider such a simple and amiable character without lamenting that he neglected to become his own biographer ; because no species of writing, perhaps, is more capable of uniting amusement with utility than the genuine unvarnished picture of private life ; and certainly no species of writing...
Стр. 149 - It is a trite observation, that the life of an author is seldom capable of affording much amusement to the reader ; and that of Mr. Way was particularly barren of incident : for his biographer would have little to relate, except that he was educated at Eton, from whence he went to Oxford, and afterwards to the Temple ; and that having married early in life, he retired almost immediately to a small country seat in Essex, where he died, on the 26th of April, 1799, after a very short illness, in the...
Стр. 109 - How fain the tree would swell its rind ! But, vainly trying, it decays, So fares it with my shackled mind ; So wastes the vigour of my days ; And soon our deaths will prove, I guess, The triumph of unthankfulness.
Стр. 152 - There was nothing in them on which ridicule could fasten. His manners were easy and unembarrassed, and his address particularly attractive, from being marked with that best sort of politeness which is the expression of benevolence. But that perfect simplicity of demeanour which borrows nothing from imitation, has certainly a singular appearance in the eyes of those who are only conversant with artificial society : perhaps, indeed, few peculiarities are more striking than a total absence of all affectation....
Стр. 139 - THERE is a tear for all that die, A mourner o'er the humblest grave ; But nations swell the funeral cry, And Triumph weeps above the brave. For them is Sorrow's purest sigh O'er Ocean's heaving bosom sent : In vain their bones unburied lie, All earth becomes their monument ! A tomb is theirs on every page, An epitaph on every tongue : The present hours, the future age, For...
