" To again quote the oracles of my highpriest, Wordsworth, there is nothing like ' The harvest of a quiet eye, That broods and sleeps on its own heart.
Seite 102 - ... primrose by the river's brim, a yellow primrose was to him, but it was nothing more ; though we all actually know all there is to be known about the little primrose. Basil [letting...
Seite 363 - ... was too long. The very few Times that Kitty had ever enjoyed the Amusement of Dancing was an excuse for her impatience, and an apology for the Idleness it occasioned to a Mind naturally very Active ; but her Freind without such a plea was infinitely worse than herself. She could do nothing but wander from the house to the Garden, and from the Garden to the avenue, wondering when Thursday would come, which she might easily have ascertained, and counting the hours as they passed which served only...
Seite 21 - This propensity had brought on him an absurd nickname. A young lady, whose designs on another he had thwarted for a whole evening by a course of ill-timed compliments — and the prosperity of a compliment, even more than of a jest, " Must lie i' the ear of him who hears it," — called him Cupid Quotem ; and the ridiculous is memory's most adhesive plaster.
