Pàgina 118 - Fill high the sparkling bowl, The rich repast prepare ; Reft of a crown, he yet may share the feast : Close by the regal chair Fell Thirst and Famine scowl A baleful smile upon their baffled guest. Heard ye the din of battle bray, Lance to lance, and horse to horse ? Long years of havoc urge their destined course, And thro' the kindred squadrons mow their way.

Pàgina 66 - They close in clouds of smoke and dust, With sword-sway and with lance's thrust; And such a yell was there, Of sudden and portentous birth, As if men fought upon the earth, And fiends in upper air: Oh!
Pàgina 104 - Monks, and Jargon-teaching Schools, Led forth the true Philosophy, there long Held in the Magic Chain of Words and Forms, And Definitions void: he led Her forth, Daughter of Heaven! that, slow-ascending still, Investigating sure the Chain of Things, With radiant Finger points to Heaven again.
Pàgina 4 - ... it bears a noble countenance. To the feudal law it is owing that the very names of right and privilege were not swept away, as in Asia, by the desolating hand of power. The tyranny which, on every favourable moment, was breaking through all barriers, would have rioted without control, if, when the people were poor and disunited, the nobility had not been brave and free.
