Seite 345 - Now, who shall arbitrate? Ten men love what I hate, Shun what I follow, slight what I receive; Ten, who in ears and eyes Match me: we all surmise, They this thing, and I that: whom shall my soul believe? Not on the vulgar mass Called "work...
Seite 148 - Thus heaping wealth, by the most ready way Among the Jews which was to cheat and pray : The city, to reward his pious hate Against his master, chose him magistrate. His hand a vare of justice did uphold, His neck was loaded with a chain of gold.

Seite xv - Oft she rejects, but never once offends. Bright as the sun, her eyes the gazers strike, And, like the sun, they shine on all alike. Yet graceful ease, and sweetness void of pride, Might hide her faults, if belles had faults to hide: If to her share some female errors fall, Look on her face, and you'll forget them all.
Seite 213 - ... the People ! Born to be Their curious epitome; To share yet rise above Their shifting hate and love. Common his mind, (it seemed so then,) His thoughts the thoughts of other men: Plain were his words, and poor, But now they will endure ! No hasty fool, of stubborn will, But prudent, cautious, pliant still; Who since his work was good Would do it as he could.
Seite 6 - The distinction of the forest scenery may be summed up best in the words dignity and luxuriance. The tall trees grow close together. For the most part their leaves are small, but their close neighbourhood hinders this from spoiling the effect. The eye wanders over swell after swell, and into cavern after cavern of unbroken foliage.
