Strona 373 - But your publishing — your printing, — how was that?" " That was only, sir, — only because — " I hesitated most abominably, not knowing how to tell him a long story, and growing terribly confused at these...
Strona 396 - such stuff as great part of Shakespeare? only one must not say so! But what think you?— What? — Is there not sad stuff? What?— what?
Strona 162 - True wit is nature to advantage dress'd ; What oft was thought, but ne'er so well express'd ; Something, whose truth convinc'd at sight we find, That gives us back the image of our mind.
Strona 337 - This day was the ever-honoured, everlamented Dr. Johnson committed to the earth. Oh, how sad a day to me ! My father attended, and so did Charles. I could not keep my eyes dry all day ; nor can I now, in the recollecting it ; but let me pass over what to mourn is now so vain...

Mr Cator, thus interrupted in the midst of his proposition, looked quite amazed; Mr Pepys was much gratified by the interference; and Dr Johnson, after a pause, said 'Well, Madam, you shall hear no more of it: yet I will defend myself in every part, and in every atom!
Strona 336 - ... o'clock before I got any answer. Mr. Langton then came himself. He could not look at me, and I turned away from him. Mrs. Davis asked how the Doctor was? " Going on to death very fast !" was his mournful answer. " Has he taken," said she, " anything ?" " Nothing at all ! We carried him some bread and milk — he refused it, and said —
Strona 105 - Dr. Johnson has been very unwell indeed.
