Pàgina 600 - When I look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies in me ; when I read the epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinate desire goes out; when I meet with the grief of parents upon a tomb-stone, my heart melts with compassion ; when I see the tomb of the parents themselves, I consider the vanity of grieving for those whom we must quickly follow.
Pàgina 216 - And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament, from the waters which were above the firmament : and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.
Pàgina 50 - Thus with the year Seasons return ; but not to me returns Day, or the sweet approach of even or morn, Or sight of vernal bloom, or summer's rose, Or flocks, or herds, or human face divine ; But cloud instead, and everduring dark Surrounds me, from the cheerful ways of men Cut off, and for the book of knowledge fair Presented with a universal blank Of nature's works, to me expunged and rased, And wisdom at one entrance quite shut out.
Pàgina 313 - Oh, could I lose all father, now ! for why, Will man lament the state he should envy ? To have so soon 'scaped world's, and flesh's rage, And, if no other misery, yet age ! Rest in soft peace, and...

Pàgina 96 - Shakes off the Dust, and rears his rev'rend Head! Then Sculpture and her Sister-Arts revive; Stones leap'd to Form, and Rocks began to live; With sweeter Notes each rising Temple rung; A Raphael painted, and a Vida sung! Immortal Vida! on whose honour'd Brow The Poet's Bays and Critick's Ivy grow: Cremona now shall ever boast thy Name, As next in Place to Mantua, next in Fame!
Pàgina 218 - He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them. 50 He made a way to his anger ; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence...
Pàgina 433 - The Border slogan rent the sky ! A Home ! a Gordon ! was the cry : Loud were the clanging blows ; Advanced, — forced back, — now low, now high, The pennon sunk...
Pàgina 277 - But by your fathers' worth if yours you rate, Count me those only who were good and great. Go ! if your ancient but ignoble blood Has crept through scoundrels ever since the flood, Go ! and pretend your family is young, Nor own your fathers have been fools so long. What can ennoble sots, or slaves, or cowards ? Alas ! not all the blood of all the Howards.
