Strona 13 - He'd rather choose that I should die Than his prediction prove a lie : Not one foretells I shall recover, But all agree to give me over. 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 232 - 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 207 - 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 230 - Troy's turrets totter on the rocking plain ; And the toss'd navies beat the heaving main. Deep in the dismal regions of the dead, 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 324 - The press therefore should be free. The magistrate who prevents it, opposes all improvement in morality and politics ; he sins against his country*; he choaks the very seed of those happy ideas which the liberty of the press would produce : and who can estimate that loss?
Strona 347 - NOBLES and heralds, by your leave, Here lie the bones of Matthew Prior; He was the son of Adam and Eve — Let Nassau or Bourbon go higher.
Strona 230 - 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 329 - Error, dangerous in itself, is still more so by propagation : one produces many. Every man compares, more or less, his ideas together. If he adopt a false idea, that, united with others, produces such as are necessarily false, which, combining again with all those that his memory contains, give to all of them a greater or less tinge of falsehood.
Strona 29 - If you could do nothing and allow nothing to be done ; if you could bring your pupil sound and robust to the age of twelve years without his being able to distinguish his right hand from his left — from your very first lessons the eyes of his understanding would be open to reason.
