Strona 82 - My dear youth, I could with much pleasure detain you longer in my humble mansion, but I feel your impatience to revisit your friends, and I am sensible that it would be cruelty to deprive them longer than necessary of the joy they will receive in recovering you.
Strona 62 - Of all the gods who tread the spangled skies, Thou, most unjust, most odious in our eyes ! Inhuman discord is thy dire delight, The waste of slaughter, and the rage of fight. No bound, no law, thy fiery temper quells, 1100 And all thy mother in thy soul rebels. In vain our threats, in vain our power we use, She gives th' example, and her son pursues.
Strona 92 - The corn we grow must be ground, or it will do us little good. But what will you do for a mill, my friend ? B. I suppose we must make one, sir. Mr. B. True ; but then you must bring with you a millwright for the purpose. As for millstones, we will take them out with us. Who is next ? C. I am a carpenter, sir. Mr. B. The most necessary man that could offer ! We shall find you work enough, never fear. There will be houses to build, fences to make, and all sorts of wooden furniture to provide.
Strona 81 - With his own hands he took off his fetters, and helped him to change his dress, and mount on horseback. The youth was tempted to think it all a dream, and the flutter of emotion almost deprived him of the power of returning thanks to his generous benefactor.
Strona 150 - I've held my way, A lonely unprotected stranger, To all the stranger's ills a prey. While steering thus my course precarious, My fortune still has been to find Men's hearts and dispositions various, But gentle Woman ever kind. Alive to every tender feeling, To deeds of mercy ever prone ; The wounds of pain and sorrow healing, With soft compassion's sweetest tone.
Strona 77 - They used their victory with considerable rigour; and in particular, having imprisoned Uberto, proceeded against him as a traitor, and thought they displayed sufficient lenity in passing a sentence upon him of perpetual banishment, and the confiscation of all his property.
Strona 91 - Come," said Mr. Barlow, to his boys, "I have a new play for you. I will be the founder of a colony, and you shall be people of different trades and professions, coming to offer yourselves to go with me. — What are you, Arthur?
Strona 151 - Woman ever kind. Alive to every tender feeling, To deeds of mercy ever prone ; The wounds of pain and sorrow healing, With soft compassion's sweetest tone. No proud delay, no dark suspicion, Stints the free bounty of their heart ; They turn not from the sad petition, But cheerful aid at once impart. Form'd in benevolence of nature, Obliging, modest, gay, and mild, Woman's the same endearing creature In courtly town and savage wild.
Strona 150 - LEDYARD'S PRAISE OF WOMEN. THROUGH many a land and clime a ranger, With toilsome steps, I've iield my way A lonely unprotected stranger, To all the stranger's ills a prey. While steering thus my course precarious, My fortune still had been to find Men's hearts and dispositions various, But gentle Woman ever kind.
Strona 79 - The youth seemed oppressed with labour to which his delicate frame had not been accustomed, and while he leaned at intervals upon the instrument "with which he was working, a sigh burst from his full heart, and a tear stole down his cheek. Uberto eyed him with tender compassion, and addressed him in Italian. The youth eagerlycaught the sounds of his native tongue, and replying to his inquiries, informed him that he was a Genoese. " And what is your name, young man?" said Uberto. "You need not be...
