Strona 20 - What modes of sight betwixt each wide extreme, The mole's dim curtain, and the lynx's beam; Of smell, the headlong lioness between, And hound sagacious on the tainted green ; Of hearing, from the life that fills the flood, To that which warbles through the vernal wood.
Strona 295 - On the bare earth exposed he lies With not a friend to close his eyes. With downcast looks the joyless victor sate, Revolving in his alter'd soul The various turns of chance below; And now and then a sigh he stole, And tears began to flow.
Strona 346 - Unlike my subject now shall be my song, It shall be witty, and it shan't be long.

Strona 226 - Ariel himself shall be the guard of Shock. "To fifty chosen sylphs, of special note, We trust th...
Strona 272 - I hear a voice, you cannot hear, Which says, I must not stay; I see a hand, you cannot see, Which beckons me away.
Strona 352 - I *' thought you were on the other side of the " question just now !" is sometimes tauntingly said to an ingenuous child, who changes his opinion when he hears a new argument. You think it a proof of his want of judgment, that he changes his opinion. Do you think it a proof that your scales are bad, because they vibrate with every additional weight that is added to either side ? Idle people sometimes amuse themselves with trying the judgment of children, by telling them improbable, extravagant stories,...
Strona 234 - The electric fluid is attracted by points. We do not know whether this property is in lightning, but since they agree in all the particulars in which we can already compare them, is it not probable they agree likewise in this? Let the experiment be made.
