Strana 42 - I had as lief the town-crier spoke my lines. Nor do not saw the air too much with your hand, thus ; but use all gently : for in the very torrent, tempest, and, as I may say, whirlwind of your passion, you must acquire and beget a temperance that may give it smoothness. O, it offends me to the soul to hear a robustious periwig-pated fellow tear a passion to tatters, to very rags...
Strana 179 - Here will I hold. If there's a power above us (And that there is, all Nature cries aloud Through all her works), he must delight in virtue ; And that which he delights in must be happy.
Strana 215 - When lo! we reach'd old Ocean's utmost bounds, Where rocks control his waves with ever-during mounds. "There in a lonely land, and gloomy cells, The dusky nation of Cimmeria dwells; The sun ne'er views the uncomfortable seats, When radiant he advances, or retreats: Unhappy race! whom endless night invades, Clouds the dull air, and wraps them round in shades.
Strana 216 - But hov'ring mists around his brows are spread, And night, with sable shades, involves his head.
Strana 42 - O, it offends me to the soul, to hear a robustious, periwigpated fellow tear a passion to tatters, to very rags, to split the ears of the groundlings; who, for the most part, are capable of nothing but inexplicable dumb shows, and noise. I would have such a fellow whipped for o'erdoing Termagant; it out-herods Herod. Pray you, avoid it.
Strana 216 - Shall dare thee foot to foot with sword and shield, Much less in arms oppose thy matchless force When thy sharp spurs shall urge thy foaming horse.
Strana 214 - Now to the shores we bend, a mournful train, Climb the tall bark, and launch into the main : At once the mast we rear, at once unbind The spacious sheet,1 and stretch it to the wind: Then pale and pensive stand, with cares oppressed, And solemn horror saddens every breast.
Strana 203 - Mantua me genuit : Calabri rapuere : tenet nunc Parthenope : cecini pascua, rura, duces.
