Стр. 172 - Tis not in mortals to command success, But we'll do more, Sempronius; we'll deserve it.
Стр. 266 - 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. 302 - 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 - 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. 264 - 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. 260 - 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. 500 - ... strings, this may be philosophically true^ but would be very ill received. We have all our playthings; happy are they that can be contented with those they can obtain : those hours are spent in the wisest manner that can easiest shade the ills of life, and are the least productive of ill consequences.
Стр. 508 - 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, "Pis yours to affect a disdain.
Стр. 334 - 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. 102 - I cannot forbear fixing my mind a little on that expression, though perhaps the only insincere one in your whole letter — I would die to be secure of your heart, though but for a moment : — were this but true, what is there I would not do to secure you? I will state the case to you as plainly as I can ; and then ask yourself, if you use me well. I have shewed, in every action of my life, an esteem for you, that at least challenges a grateful regard. I have trusted my reputation in your hands;...
