Strona 199 - ... rise! So pleased at first the towering Alps we try, Mount o'er the vales, and seem to tread the sky...
Strona 24 - ... when it is perfectly formed the shell gapeth open, and the first thing that appeareth is the foresaid lace or string ; next come the legs of the bird hanging out, and as it groweth greater, it openeth the shell by degrees, till at length it is all come forth, and hangeth only by the bill : in short space after, it cometh to full maturitie, and falleth into the sea, where it gathereth feathers, and groweth to a fowle bigger than a mallard and lesser than a goose...
Strona 198 - A little learning is a dangerous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring; There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, And drinking largely sobers us again.

Strona 329 - Who has e'er had the luck to see Donnybrook Fair? An Irishman, all in his glory, is there, With his sprig of shillelah and shamrock so green!
Strona 225 - Inscribed on many a learned page, In mystic characters and sage, Long time my First has stood ; And though its golden age be past, In wooden walls it yet may last Till clothed with flesh and blood. My Second is a glorious prize For all who love their wondering eyes With curious sights to pamper ; But 'tis a sight — which should they meet, All...

Strona 148 - Leyden, of much eminence, said that " he felt himself struck in his arms, shoulders, and breast, so that he lost his breath ; and it was two days before he recovered from the effects of the blow and the terror ; adding, that he would not take a second shock for the kingdom of France.
