Strana 255 - Excudent alii spirantia mollius aera, credo equidem, vivos ducent de marmore vultus, orabunt causas melius, caelique meatus describent radio et surgentia sidera dicent: 850 tu regere imperio populos, Romane, memento; hae tibi erunt artes; pacisque imponere morem, parcere subiectis et debellare superbos.
Strana 121 - H. — I should be very sorry, indeed, sir, if this was known beyond these walls ; for I am much mistaken if the public would not pronounce a judgment widely different from that you think. It is not sufficient, sir, for the King to be wrong in one point: sir, unless you are in the right in all, and as long as any part of your conduct is open to censure, the voice of the public (considering your relative situations) will always go with the King.
Strana 462 - His conduct has been highly honourable, and everything like personal claim, or even party claim, on him by the Duke of Portland is certainly at least cancelled, if not converted into a direct provocation, by what has passed since the commencement of this session. But the public good, in my opinion, requires his services; and for that reason they are due from him. I shall certainly not only approve, but applaud, his acceptance of the Seals.
Strana 271 - Sed mihi vel tellus optem prius ima dehiscat, 'Vel Pater omnipotens adigat me fulmine ad umbras, 25 'Pallentes umbras Erebi noctemque profundam, 'Ante, Pudor, quam te violo, aut tua iura resolvo. 'Ille meos, primus qui me sibi iunxit, amores 'Abstulit; ille habeat secum servetque sepulchro.
Strana 122 - Sir, and have children, you have no solid hold on the affections of the people, even while you are Prince of Wales; but if you come to the throne a bachelor, and His Royal Highness the Duke of York is married, and has sons to succeed you, your situation, when King, will be more painful than it is at this moment. Our own history furnishes strong examples of the truth of what I say. "The Prince was greatly struck with this observation. He walked about the room, apparently angry. I moved towards the...
Strana 444 - These two made very violent and mischievous speeches. — Lord Loughborough answered them in one of the finest speeches possible; but the Duke of Portland, to the great concern and grief of his friends, did not say a word. I urged him repeatedly to get up, but he said he really could not, he felt it impossible: that Lord Loughborough had said all that could be said, and that it was impossible to spe'ak after so fine a speech. I pressed him to say those very words, and nothing more, but without effect.
Strana 115 - I think it very immaterial for your Royal Highness to know whether you can, or cannot, legally travel without his Majesty's consent; since it is evident that you cannot with any propriety to the public, or satisfaction to yourself, cross the seas without it.
Strana 121 - ... what I have read. But still, sir, the Queen must have a reconciliation so much at heart, that through her and your sisters it surely might be effected. " P. — Look ye, Harris ; I cannot bring myself to say I am in the wrong when I am in the right. The King has used me ill ; and I wish the public knew what you now know, and was to pronounce between us.
Strana 457 - He told me war was a decided measure ; that Pitt saw it was inevitable, and that the sooner it was begun the better — that we might possess ourselves of the French Islands*; that the nation now was disposed for war, which might not be the case six weeks hence."—"January 21.
