Strana 168 - So spake the false dissembler unperceived; For neither man nor angel can discern Hypocrisy, the only evil that walks Invisible, except to GOD alone, By His permissive will, through heav'n and earth: And oft, though wisdom wake, suspicion sleeps At wisdom's gate, and to simplicity Resigns her charge, while goodness thinks no ill Where no ill seems...
Strana 80 - Wise men have said are wearisome; who reads Incessantly, and to his reading brings not A spirit and judgment equal or superior (And what he brings, what needs he elsewhere seek) Uncertain and unsettled still remains, Deep versed in books and shallow in himself...
Strana 184 - That the raising or keeping a standing army within the kingdom in time of peace, unless it be with consent of parliament, is against law.
Strana 345 - and desire of knowledge, were what I felt all my life ; and though my genius, unlike the demon of Socrates, whispered so softly, that very often I heard him not in the hurry of those passions with which I was transported, yet some calmer hours there were, and in them I hearkened to him.

Strana 568 - Our friend Pope, it seems, corrected and prepared for the press, just before his death, an edition of the four epistles that follow the " Essay on Man." They were then printed off, and are now ready for publication. I am sorry for it, because, if he could be excused for writing the character of Atossa formerly, there is no excuse for his design of publishing it after he had received the favour you and I know; and the character of Atossa is inserted. I have a copy of the book.
Strana 289 - There St. John mingles with my friendly bowl The feast of reason and the flow of soul...
Strana 83 - Or shall we expect from time, the physician of brutes, a lingering and uncertain deliverance ? Shall we wait to be happy till we can forget that we are miserable, and owe to the weakness of our faculties a tranquillity •which ought to be the effect of their strength? Far otherwise. Let us set all our past and our present afflictions at once before our eyes. Let us resolve to overcome them, instead of flying from them, or wearing out the sense of them by long and ignominious patience.
