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. 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.

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.
