Стр. 236 - Learning, if she has a real taste for it, will not only make her contented, but happy in.it. No entertainment is so cheap as reading, nor any pleasure so lasting.
Стр. 289 - H. Fielding has given a true picture of himself and his first wife in the characters of Mr. and Mrs. Booth, some compliments to his own figure excepted ; and I am persuaded, several of the incidents he mentions are real matters of fact.
Стр. 80 - The word malignity, and a passage in your letter, call to my mind the wicked wasp of Twickenham : his lies affect me now no more ; they will be all as much despised as the story of the seraglio and the handkerchief, of which I am persuaded he was the only inventor. That man has a malignant and ungenerous heart ; and he is base enough to assume the mask of a moralist, in order to decry human nature, and to give a decent vent to his hatred of man and woman kind.
Стр. 239 - Perhaps you may have more success in the instructing your daughter: she has so much company at home, she will not need seeking it abroad, and will more readily take the notions, you think fit to give her. As you were alone in my family, it would have been thought a great cruelty to suffer you no companions of your own age, especially having so many near relations, and I do not wonder their opinions influenced yours.
Стр. 461 - How am I chang'd ! alas ! how am I grown A frightful spectre to myself unknown ! Where's my complexion ? where my radiant bloom, That promis'd happiness for years to come...
Стр. 483 - No : like the self-blown praise, thy scandal flies ; And, as we're told of wasps, it stings and dies. If none do yet return th...
Стр. 41 - ... privately. After some modest refusals, he swore by G he would not let them in. Her grace, with a noble warmth, answered, by G they would come in in spite of the Chancellor and the whole House.
Стр. 482 - Not even youth and beauty can control The universal rancour of thy soul; Charms that might soften superstition's rage, Might humble pride, or thaw the ice of age.
Стр. 320 - Arabian horse, which he could not know how to manage. I am reading an idle tale, not expecting wit or truth in it, and am very glad it is not metaphysics to puzzle my judgment, or history to mislead my opinion : he fortifies his health by exercise; I calm my cares by oblivion. The methods may appear low to busy people ; but, if he improves his strength and I forget my infirmities, we both attain very desirable ends.
Стр. 320 - The active scenes are over at my age. I indulge, with all the art I can, my taste for reading. If I would confine it to valuable books, they are almost as rare as valuable men. I must be content with what I can find.
