Strona 97 - He travels, and I too. I tread his deck, Ascend his topmast, through his peering eyes Discover countries, with a kindred heart Suffer his woes, and share in his escapes ; While fancy, like the finger of a clock, Runs the great circuit, and is still at home.
Strona 1 - Tis to create, and in creating live A being more intense that we endow With form our fancy, gaining as we give The life we image, even as I do now.
Strona 242 - But me, not destined such delights to share, My prime of life in wandering spent and care ; Impell'd, with steps unceasing, to pursue Some fleeting good, that mocks me with the view ; That, like the circle bounding earth and skies, Allures from far, yet, as I follow, flies ; My fortune leads to traverse realms alone, And find no spot of all the world my own.

Strona 271 - Two elements, then, seem to be comprised in the great fact which we call civilization; — two circumstances are necessary to its existence — it lives upon two conditions — it reveals itself by two symptoms: the progress of society, the progress of individuals; the melioration of the social system, and the expansion of the mind and faculties of man.
Strona 161 - I was saying, our road was not "laid," so it was a very even and pleasant one, although it led through a rough country. We had not yet lost the fresh breeze of the early morning, but the sun had become so powerful as to make the flickering shade of these scattered woods very delightful to us all. The children were never tired of watching the vagaries of the little chipmonk" as he glanced from branch to branch with almost the swiftness of light, but they screamed with pleasure when the noise of our...
Strona 46 - ... une autre, tout cela n'est rien : il n'a de souvenir a placer nulle part : c'est la quantite de coups de hache qu'il faut qu'il donne pour abattre un arbre, qui est son unique id6e.
