Pàgina 370 - ... notwithstanding any anxieties which he pretends for his mistress, his country, or his friends, one may see by his action, that his greatest care and concern is to keep the plume of feathers from falling off his head.
Pàgina 198 - That old Artaxerxes evening had never done ringing in my fancy. I expected the same feelings to come again with the same occasion. But we differ from ourselves less at sixty and sixteen, than the latter does from six. In that interval what had I not lost ! At the first period I knew nothing, understood nothing, discriminated nothing. I felt all, loved all, wondered all — Was nourished, I could not tell how — I had left the temple a devotee, and was returned a rationalist.

Pàgina 275 - The character of the state (of Venice) is to employ strangers in their wars ; but shall a poet thence fancy that they will set a Negro to be their general ; or trust a Moor to defend them against the Turk ? With us, a Blackamoor might rise to be a trumpeter, but Shakespear would not have him less than a lieutenant-general.
Pàgina 199 - To-day I go to the Blackfriars play-house, Sit in the view, salute all my acquaintance, Rise up between the acts, let fall my...
Pàgina 449 - I have a good clear income for my life ; a trifle to settle, which I am only ashamed to offer ; a good house (as houses go in our part of the world), moderately furnished, a good many books, a pleasant garden (better I believe than when you saw it), etc. Would to God I might have leave to lay them all at your feet.
