Popularne fragmenty

Strona 110 - She that has that is clad in complete steel ; And, like a quiver'd nymph, with arrows keen, May trace huge forests, and unharbour'd heaths, Infamous hills, and sandy perilous wilds, Where, through the sacred rays of chastity, No savage fierce, bandit, or mountaineer, Will dare to soil her virgin purity...
Strona 259 - Ah me! for aught that ever I could read. Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth: But, either it was different in blood; Her.
Strona 72 - O'er other creatures. Yet when I approach Her loveliness, so absolute she seems And in herself complete, so well to know Her own, that what she wills to do or say, Seems wisest, virtuousest, discreetest, best.
Strona 397 - Kept the word of promise to the ear, But broke it to the hope.
Strona 72 - Loses discountenanced, and like folly shows. Authority and reason on her wait, As one intended first, not after made Occasionally: and, to consummate all, Greatness of mind and nobleness their seat Build in her loveliest, and create an awe About her, as a guard angelic placed.
Strona 73 - So much delights me, as those graceful acts, Those thousand decencies that daily flow From all her words and actions, mix'd with love And sweet compliance, which declare unfeign'd Union of mind, or in us both one soul ; Harmony to behold in wedded pair More grateful than harmonious sound to the ear.
Strona 275 - Not to a rage : patience and sorrow strove Who should express her goodliest. You have seen Sunshine and rain at once : her smiles and tears
Strona 98 - Pleasures are few, and fewer we enjoy ; Pleasure, like quicksilver, is bright, and coy ; We strive to grasp it with our utmost skill, Still it eludes us, and it glitters still : If seized at last, compute your mighty gains ; What is it, but rank poison in your veins...
Strona 110 - ... 1 sciocco vulgo non gli vuoi dar fede, se non le vede e tocca chiare e piane. Per questo io so che l'inesperienza farà al mio canto dar poca credenza.
Strona 380 - Deiopea, conubio iungam stabili propriamque dicabo, omnes ut tecum mentis pro talibus annos exigat et pulchra faciat te prole parentem.
