Стр. 177 - I hate life when I think it exposed to such accidents ; and to see so many thousand wretches burdening the earth, while such as her die, makes me think God did never intend life for a blessing.
Стр. 172 - ... and a dry, drolling, or laughing levity took such full possession of him, that I can only refer the idea of him to your imagination. In some of his low characters, that became it, he had a shuffling shamble in his gait, with so contented an ignorance in his aspect and an awkward absurdity in his gesture, that had you not known him, you could not have believed that naturally he could have had a grain of common sense.
Стр. 110 - What was writ down, with decent utt'rance spoke, Betray'd no symptom of the conscious joke ; The very man in look, in voice, in air, And tho' upon the stage, appear'd no Play'r. The word and action should conjointly suit, But acting words is labour too minute. Grimace will ever lead the judgment wrong ; While sober humour marks th...
Стр. 113 - He who in earnest studies o'er his part Will find true nature cling about his heart. The modes of grief are not included all In the white handkerchief and mournful drawl : A single look more marks the internal woe Than all the windings of the lengthened...
Стр. 112 - In vain for them the pleasing measure flows, Whose recitation runs it all to prose ; Repeating what the poet sets not down, The verb disjointing from its favorite noun ; While pause, and break, and repetition join To make a discord in each tuneful line. Some placid natures fill the allotted scene With lifeless drawls, insipid and serene ; While others thunder every couplet o'er And almost crack your ears with rant and roar.
Стр. 111 - Tis not enough the voice be sound and clear, Tis modulation that must charm the ear. When desperate heroines grieve with tedious moan, And whine their sorrows in a see-saw tone, The same soft sounds of unimpassioned woes Can only make the yawning hearers doze. The voice all modes of passion can express, That marks the proper word with proper stress, But none emphatic can that actor call, Who lays an equal emphasis on all.

Стр. 13 - By these the beauteous similes reside, In look more open, in design ally'd, Who, fond of likeness, from another's face Bring every feature's corresponding grace, With near approaches in expression flow, And take the turn their pattern loves to show; As in a glass the shadows meet the fair, And dress and practice with resembling air. Thus Truth by pleasure doth her aim pursue, Looks bright, and fixes on the doubled view.
Стр. 51 - Yet both your fancy and your Hands are bound, And by Improving what was writ Before, Invention Labours Less, but Judgment more. The Soil intended for Pierian seeds Must be well purg'd from rank Pedantick Weeds. Apollo starts, and all Parnassus shakes, At the rude Rumbling Baralipton makes.
