Strona 212 - There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke ; When down her weedy trophies and herself Fell in the weeping brook.
Strona 212 - There is a willow grows aslant 'a brook, That shows his hoar leaves in the glassy stream ; There with fantastic garlands did she come Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples That liberal shepherds give a grosser name, But our cold maids do dead men's fingers call them...
Strona 180 - Thou, O Lord, how long? how long, Lord, wilt Thou be angry, for ever?™ Remember not our former iniquities™ for I felt that I was held by them. I sent up these sorrowful words: How long, how long, "to-morrow, and to-morrow?
Strona 192 - Vivamus, mea Lesbia, atque amemus, rumoresque senum severiorum omnes unius aestimemus assis. soles occidere et redire possunt: nobis, cum semel occidit brevis lux, nox est perpetua una dormienda. da mi basia mille, deinde centum, dein mille altera, dein secunda centum, deinde usque altera mille, deinde centum. dein...
Strona 143 - Ses inventions sont faibles, et les couleurs dont il les revêt n'ont presque jamais cette plénitude de force qu'on aime à rencontrer dans la poésie, et dans tous les arts qui devaient donner à la fiction l'énergie et l'originalité de la nature. Klopstock s'égare dans l'idéal : Goethe ne perd jamais terre, tout en atteignant aux conceptions les plus sublimes.
Strona 146 - For nowhere either with more quiet or more freedom from trouble does a man retire than into his own soul, particularly when he has within him such thoughts that by looking into them he is immediately in perfect tranquillity ; and I affirm that tranquillity is nothing else than the good ordering of the mind.
Strona 192 - ... sestimemus assis. Let us live, my Lesbia, and love, And all the carping of stern old men Let us rate at a penny's worth. Read the verses in which Propertius bids his fellow-poet Gallus beware of falling in love with Cynthia, — ; Non ego turn potero solacia ferre roganti. Were you to come, I could not console you. And again, take his complaint, — Me mediae noctes, me sidera prona jacentem, Frigidaque Eoo me dolet aura gelu.
Strona 18 - ... ardente qui m'entraîne vers un bonheur sans limite, et me fait considérer l'absence de ce bonheur comme la plus grande infortune... Mais c'est là, soyez-en sûr, une passion folle qu'il faut combattre. Ce sentiment-là n'est point viril et ne saurait rien produire qui le soit. La vie n'est ni un plaisir ni une douleur, c'est une affaire grave dont nous sommes chargés, et dont notre devoir est de nous acquitter le mieux ,possible.
Strona 216 - ... haec studia adolescentiam alunt, senectutem oblectant, secundas res ornant, adversis perfugium ac solatium praebent, 'delectant domi, non impediunt foris, pernoctant nobiscum, peregrinantur, rusticantur.
Strona 104 - ... act in unison with the motions of the universe, and help, no matter in how trivial a respect, its upward will to prevail. The music of hope blows in the winter wind, sings in April showers, murmurs in the mysterious noises of the woods, in the voices of men, in the anguish of the crucifix, calling upon Life to feel, to enjoy, and to suffer for the sake of more life.
