Strona 9 - Yet should some neighbour feel a pain, Just in the parts, where I complain; How many a message would he send? What hearty prayers that I should mend?
Strona 228 - Wheeling unshaken through the void immense ; And speak, O man ! does this capacious scene With half that kindling majesty dilate Thy strong conception, as when Brutus rose Refulgent from the stroke of Caesar's fate, Amid the crowd of patriots ; and his arm Aloft extending, like eternal Jove When guilt brings down the thunder, call'd aloud On Tully's name, and shook his crimson steel, And bade the father of his country hail ? For lo ! the tyrant prostrate on the dust, And Rome again is free...
Strona 203 - Thee, too, my Paridel ! she mark'd thee there, Stretch'd on the rack of a too easy chair, And heard thy everlasting yawn confess The pains and penalties of idleness.
Strona 226 - Th' infernal monarch rear'd his horrid head, Leap'd from his throne, lest Neptune's arm should lay His dark dominions open to the day, And pour in light on Pluto's drear abodes, Abhorr'd by men, and dreadful ev'n to gods. Such war th' immortals wage; such horrors rend The world's vast concave, when the gods contend.
Strona 226 - Far as a shepherd from some point on high, O'er the wide main extends his boundless eye ; Through such a space of air, with thundering sound, At every leap the immortal coursers bound : Troy now they reach'd and touch'd those banks divine, Where silver Simois and Scamander join.

Strona 341 - Painters and heralds, by your leave, Here lie the bones of Matthew Prior, The son of Adam and of Eve:— Let Bourbon or Nassau go higher...
Strona 226 - Heaven in loud thunder bids the trumpet sound; And wide beneath them groans the rending ground. Jove, as his sport, the dreadful scene descries, And views contending gods with careless eyes.
Strona 320 - ... sure of the truth of our opinions, we should make them public. It is by the touchstone of discussion that they must be proved. The press, therefore, should be free. The magistrate who prevents it, opposes all improvement in morality and politics; he sins against his country, he chokes the very seeds of those happy ideas which the liberty of the press would produce. And who can estimate that loss! Wherever this liberty is withheld, ignorance, like a profound darkness, spreads over ' the minds...
Strona 413 - I have just said, is nothiug more than a jumble of gross errors and contradictions; because to be just a man must have discernment, and they obscure in children the most obvious conceptions of the natural law. But are children capable of conceiving adequate ideas of justice? This I know, that if by the aid of a religious catechism we can engrave on the memory of a child articles of faith that are frequently the most absurd, we might consequently, by the aid of a moral catechism, there engrave the...
