Стр. 178 - A countenance in which did meet Sweet records, promises as sweet; A creature not too bright or good For human nature's daily food, For transient sorrows, simple wiles, Praise, blame, love, kisses, tears, and smiles.
Стр. 99 - This indigested vomit of the sea Fell to the Dutch by just propriety. Glad then, as miners who have found the ore, They, with mad labour...
Стр. 182 - Oh, what was love made for, if 'tis not the same Through joy and through torment, through glory and shame, I know not, I ask not, if guilt's in that heart : I but know that I love thee, whatever thou art.
Стр. 95 - O Printing! how hast thou disturbed the peace of mankind! That lead, when moulded into bullets, is not so mortal, as when founded into letters. There was a mistake, sure, in the story of Cadmus; and the serpent's teeth, which he sowed, were nothing else but the letters which he invented.
Стр. 101 - There is indeed an exception, when any great genius thinks it worth his while to expose a foolish piece ; so we still read Marvell's answer to Parker * with pleasure, though the book it answers be sunk long ago...
Стр. 181 - Green Lane. Since that day not a single one has passed, not to speak of nights, in which you have not engrossed more of my thoughts than I could have wished.
Стр. 134 - That, in -the districts in which females are taken down into the coal mines, both sexes are employed together in precisely the same kind of labour, and work for the same number of hours; that the girls and boys, and the young men and young women, and even married women and women with child, commonly work almost naked, and the men, in many mines, quite naked; and that all classes of witnesses bear testimony to the demoralizing influence of the employment of females underground.
Стр. 515 - ... with any Chief or State without the knowledge and sanction of the British Government ; but the usual amicable correspondence with friends and relations shall continue.
Стр. 280 - As soon as he ceases to write trifles, he begins to write lies ; and such lies ! A man who has never been within the tropics does not know what a thunderstorm means ; a man who has never looked on Niagara has but a faint idea of a cataract ; and he who has not read Barere's Memoirs may be said not to know what it is to lie.
Стр. 71 - I write sincerely without any other end than to perform my duty to the publick in helping them to an humble servant; laying aside those jealousies and that emulation which mine own condition might suggest to me by bringing in such a coadjutor; and remain, my Lord, your most obliged and faithful servant, JOHN MILTON.
