Стр. 173 - Shalt show us how divine a thing A Woman may be made. Thy thoughts and feelings shall not die, Nor leave thee, when grey hairs are nigh A melancholy slave; But an old age serene and bright, And lovely as a Lapland night, Shall lead thee to thy grave.
Стр. 66 - And what if all of animated nature Be but organic harps diversely framed, That tremble into thought, as o'er them sweeps Plastic and vast, one intellectual breeze, At once the Soul of each, and God of all?
Стр. 213 - In men we various ruling passions find ; In women two almost divide the kind ; Those only fix'd, they first or last obey, The love of pleasure, and the love of sway.
Стр. 312 - We have derived unmingled pleasure from the perusal of these interesting volumes. Very rarely have we found a narrative of Eastern travel so truthful and just. There is no guide-book we would so strongly recommend to the traveller about to enter on a Turkish or Syrian tour as this before us.

The author commences his narrative at Gaza ; visits Askalon, Jaffa and Jerusalem, Caipha and Mount Carmel, Acre, Sidon and Tyre, Beyrout, Tripoli, Antioch, Aleppo, Alexandretta, Adana, and Cyprus. Of several of these famous localities we know no more compact and clearer...
Стр. 312 - Mr. Neale's book will claim the highest rank among works of this class His long wanderings of eight years in the regions he describes have made him thoroughly familiar with localities, and with the domestic life of the population. Nothing can be more graphic than his picturesque descriptions ; nothing more amusing than his sketches of native society ; more piquant or more diverting than his stories, anecdotes, and adventures. He takes us out of the beaten tract of tourists into the nooks and corners,...
Стр. 133 - And seldom was a snood amid Such wild luxuriant ringlets hid, Whose glossy black to shame might bring The plumage of the raven's wing; And seldom o'er a breast so fair Mantled a plaid with modest care, And never brooch the folds combined Above a heart more good and kind.
Стр. 214 - the thing which hath been is that which shall be; and that which is done, is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the Sun.
