Strona 61 - Belgium's capital had gather'd then Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men ; A thousand hearts beat happily ; and when Music arose with its voluptuous swell, Soft eyes look'd love to eyes which spake again, And all went merry as a wedding bell ; But hush ! hark ! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell...
Strona 61 - There was a sound of revelry by night, And Belgium's capital had gathered then Her Beauty and her Chivalry, and bright The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men...
Strona 116 - And the weak soul, within, itself unblest, Leans for all pleasure on another's breast. Hence ostentation here, with tawdry art, Pants for the vulgar praise which fools impart; Here vanity assumes her pert grimace, And trims her robes of frieze with copper lace; Here beggar- pride defrauds her daily cheer, To boast one splendid banquet once a year.

Strona 77 - Ordinis haec virtus erit et Venus, aut ego fallor, Ut jam mine dicat jam nunc debentia dici, obscurus evado.
Strona 93 - ... in a very languid way, what it is that will relieve them most effectually or, in other words, that the shoe does not really pinch them so hard as we think it does. For when it really pinches, as when a man is being flogged, he will seek relief by any means in his power. So my great namesake said, "Surely the pleasure is as great of being cheated as to cheat...
Strona 49 - Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear.
