Strona 500 - Abdiel, faithful found, Among the faithless faithful only he; Among innumerable false unmoved, Unshaken, unseduced, unterrified, His loyalty he kept, his love, his zeal ; Nor number nor example with him wrought To swerve from truth, or change his constant mind, Though single.
Strona 345 - They err, who count it glorious to subdue By conquest far and wide, to overrun Large countries, and in field great battles win, Great cities by assault : what do these worthies, But rob and spoil, burn, slaughter, and enslave Peaceable nations...

Some have an ornament under the figures, that feems to fupply the place of an architrave.
Strona 375 - tis given, It blesses, like the dews of Heaven ; Like Heaven, it hears the orphan's cries, And wipes the tears from widows
Strona xliii - ... is an hill of an oblong form, the fummit of which is almoft one continued plain. From the quantities of medals, intaglios, fragments of infcriptions, &c. that are occasionally found here, this is believed to be the very fpot, where the powerful and moft ancient city of Tarquinii once flood : though at prefent it is only one continued field of corn.
