Strona lxxxiii - I should have been blameable to his mother and society, if I had seduced an apprentice from his master to marry him to the nine muses : and I should have encouraged a propensity to forgery, which is not the talent most wanting culture in the present age.
Strona 291 - Oh, how oft shall he On faith and changed gods complain, and seas Rough with black winds and storms Unwonted shall admire, Who now enjoys thee credulous...
Strona 307 - Receiv'd to venerate as Gospel truth, Thy friendship never could be dear to me, Since all I am is opposite to thee. If ever obligated to thy purse, Rowley discharges all — my first chief curse! For had I never known the antique lore, I ne'er had ventur'd from my peaceful shore, To be the wreck of promises and hopes, A Boy of Learning, and a Bard of Tropes ; But happy in my humble sphere had moved, Untroubled, unsuspected, unbelov'd.
Strona 299 - See in the circle next, Eliza placed, Two babes of love close clinging to her waist; Fair as before her works she stands confessed, In flowers and pearls by bounteous Kirkall dressed.
Strona lxxxi - ... clerk or apprentice to an attorney, but had a taste and turn for more elegant studies ; and hinted a wish that I would assist him with my interest in emerging out of so dull a profession, by procuring him some place, in which he could pursue his natural bent.
Strona 290 - Quis multa gracilis te puer in rosa Perfusus liquidis urget odoribus Grato, Pyrrha, sub antro?
Strona 303 - GOD, whose thunder shakes the sky, ' Whose eye this atom globe surveys ; To Thee, my only Rock, I fly, Thy mercy in Thy justice praise. The mystic mazes of Thy will, The shadows of celestial light, Are past the power of human skill ; But what the Eternal acts is right.
Strona cvii - So he went and did according to the word of the Lord; he went and dwelt by the brook Cherith that is east of the Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening; and he drank from the brook.
Strona 4 - Impell'd by his eternal Love He left his Palaces above To cheer our gloomy Sky How shall we celebrate the day, When God appeared in mortal clay, The mark of worldly scorn ; When the Archangel's heavenly Lays, Attempted the Redeemer's Praise And hail'd Salvation's Morn ! A Humble Form the Godhead wore, The Pains of Poverty he bore, To gaudy Pomp unknown : Tho' in a human walk he trod Still was the Man Almighty God In Glory all his own.
Strona 311 - To the memory of Thomas Chatterton. Reader, judge not if thou art a Christian, believe that he shall be judged by a superior Power. To that Power alone is he now answerable.
