Strona 267 - The carver holme; the maple seeldom inward sound. Led with delight, they thus beguile the way, Untill the blustring storme is overblowne; When, weening to returne whence they did stray, They cannot finde that path, which first was showne But wander too and fro in waies unknowne...
Strona 257 - There is a principle of the soul, superior to all nature, through which we are capable of surpassing the order and systems of the world.

" Before the sun rose, Beatrice was out of danger; at noon Zanoni escaped from the blessings of the aged pair, and as he closed the door of the house, he found Viola awaiting him without. She stood before him timidly, her hands crossed meekly on her bosom, her downcast eyes swimming with tears. " Do not let me be the only one you leave...
Strona 435 - Zanoni ' has excited among those who think it worth while to dive into the subtler meanings they believe it intended to convey, may excuse me in adding a few words, not in explanation of its mysteries, but upon the principles which permit them. ' Zanoni ' is not as some have supposed an allegory ; but beneath the narrative it relates, typical meanings are concealed.
