Strona 229 - Next, Camus, reverend sire, went footing slow, His mantle hairy, and his bonnet sedge, Inwrought with figures dim, and on the edge Like to that sanguine flower inscribed with woe.
Strona 79 - Alas! sir, I have heretofore borrowed help from him; but he is a gentleman of so much reading that the people of our town cannot understand him.
Strona 89 - ... you have chosen. What remains is in your own power. They say of poets that they must be born such : so must mathematicians, so must great generals, and so must lawyers, and so indeed must men of all denominations, or it is not possible that they should excel. But with whatever faculties we are born, and to -whatever studies our genius may direct us, studies they must still be.- I am persuaded that Milton did not write his Paradise Lost, nor Homer his Iliad, nor Newton his Principia, without immense...

Strona 245 - Difference of rank and subordination are, I believe, of God's appointment, and, consequently, essential to the well-being of society : but what we mean by fanaticism in religion, is exactly that which animates their politics ; and, unless time should sober them, they will, after all, be an unhappy people. Perhaps it deserves not much to be wondered at, that at their first escape from tyrannic shackles, they should act extravagantly, and treat their kings as they have sometimes treated their idols.
Strona 26 - He is indeed a careless writer for the most part, but where shall we find, in any of those authors who finish their works with the exactness of a Flemish pencil, those bold and daring strokes of fancy, those numbers so hazardously ventured upon and so happily finished, the matter so compressed and yet so clear, and the coloring so sparingly laid on and yet with such a beautiful effect?
