In fact, this rich intermixture of towers, and battlements, and projecting windows, highly sculptured, joined to the height of the houses, and the variety of ornament upon their fronts, produces an effect as superior to those of the tame uniformity of a modern street, as the casque of the warrior exhibits over the slouched broad-brimmed beaver of a Quaker.
Стр. 299 - A youth who scarce had seen his twentieth year Was Wallenstein, when he and I were friends ; Yet even then he had a daring soul : His frame of mind was serious and severe Beyond his years : his dreams were of great objects.
