Стр. 475 - Fortunate senex! ergo tua rura manebunt, Et tibi magna satis; quamvis lapis omnia nudus, Limosoque palus obducat pascua junco: Non insueta graves tentabunt pabula foetas, Nee mala vicini pecoris contagia loedent.
Стр. 516 - ... a generation of Amazons of the pen, who with the spirit of their predecessors have set masculine tyranny at defiance, asserted their claim to the regions of science, and seem resolved to contest the usurpations of virility.
Стр. 372 - The gates of hell are open night and day ; Smooth the descent, and easy is the way : But, to return, and view the cheerful skies — In this the task and mighty labour lies.
Стр. 416 - Horace becomes graceful and familiar ; and that such a compliment was at least possible, we know from the transformation feigned by Horace of himself. The most elegant compliment that was paid to Addison, is of this obscure and perishable kind ; When panting Virtue her last efforts made, You brought your Clio to the virgin's aid.
Стр. 242 - Johnson candidly describes himself as " a hardened and shameless tea-drinker, who has for many years diluted his meals with only the infusion of this fascinating plant ; whose kettle has scarcely time to cool ; who with tea amuses the evening, with tea solaces the midnights, and with tea welcomes the morning.

Стр. 270 - Nothing but experience could evince the frequency of false information, or enable any man to conceive that so many groundless reports should be propagated, as every man of eminence may hear of himself. Some men relate what they think, as what they know ; some men of confused memories and habitual inaccuracy, ascribe [ 34 ] to one man what belongs to another; and some talk on, without thought or care.
Стр. 498 - Two men examining the same question proceed commonly like the physician and gardener in. selecting herbs, or the farmer and hero looking on the plain ; they bring minds impressed with different notions, and direct their inquiries to different ends ; they form, therefore, contrary conclusions, and each wonders at the other's absurdity. We have less reason to be surprised or offended when we find others differ from us in opinion, because we very often differ from ourselves.
