Strana 96 - The rugged Thurlow, who, with sullen scowl. In surly mood, at friend and foe will growl; Of proud prerogative the stern support, Defends the entrance of great George's Court 'Gainst factious Whigs, lest they who stole the Seal The sacred diadem itself should steal : So have I seen near village butcher's stall ' (If things so great may be compar'd with small) A mastiff guarding on a market-day With snarling vigilance his master's tray.
Strana 437 - Fillet of a fenny snake, In the cauldron boil and bake : Eye of newt, and toe of frog, Wool of bat, and tongue of dog, Adder's fork, and blind-worm's sting, Lizard's leg, and owlet's wing, For a charm of powerful trouble, Like a hell-broth boil and bubble. All. Double, double toil and trouble, Fire burn, and cauldron bubble. 3 Witch. Scale of dragon, tooth of wolf : Witches...
Strana 328 - This is the cat That killed the rat That ate the malt That lay in the house that Jack built.
Strana 371 - If thou meet thine enemy's ox or his ass going astray, thou shalt surely bring it back to him again. If thou see the ass of him that hateth thee lying under his burden, and wouldest forbear to help him, thou shalt surely help with him.
Strana 287 - High fhe hangs the hero's fpear ; And there, with all the palms of peace combin'd, Her unpolluted hands the milder trophy rear. To Kings like thefe, her genuine theme, The Mufe a blamelefs homage pays ; To GEORGE, of kings like thefe fupreme.
Strana 125 - ... despectus tibi sum, nee qui sim quaeris, Alexi, quam dives pecoris, nivei quam lactis abundans. 20 mille meae Siculis errant in montibus agnae, lac mihi non aestate novum, non frigore defit. canto quae solitus, si quando armenta vocabat, Amphion Dircaeus in Actaeo Aracyntho. nee sum adeo informis: nuper me in litore vidi, 25 cum placidum ventis staret mare...
Strana 33 - To speak; whereat their doubled ranks they bend From wing to wing, and half enclose him round With all his peers: Attention held them mute. Thrice he assay'd, and thrice, in spite of scorn, Tears, such as Angels weep, burst forth: at last Words, interwove with sighs, found out their way.
Strana xxvi - Hesperian fruit, of use Thy lungs to cherish with balsamic juice. With this thy parch'd roof moisten ; nor consume Thy hours and guineas in the eating-room, Till, full of claret, down with wild uproar You reel, and stretch'd along the gallery, snore.
Strana 308 - A double portion of my patriot zeal, " Active to spread the fire it dar'd to feel " Through raptur'd Senates, and with awful power " From the full fountain of the tongue "To roll the rapid tide along, " Till a whole nation caught the flame. " So on thy Sire shall Heav'n bestow " A blessing TULLY fail'd to know, " And redolent in thee diffuse thy Father's fame.
Strana 306 - The Poem of CARACTACUS was read in MS. by the late Earl of CHATHAM, who honoured it with an approbation which the Author is here proud to record.
