Strana 331 - Sometimes with secure delight The upland hamlets will invite, When the merry bells ring round. And the jocund rebecks sound To many a youth, and many a maid. Dancing in the chequered shade; And young and old come forth to play On a sunshine holiday...
Strana 321 - I was stared at, hooted at, grinned at, chattered at, by monkeys, by paroquets, by cockatoos. I ran into pagodas, and was fixed for centuries at the summit, or in secret rooms ; I was the idol ! I was the priest ! I was worshipped ! I was sacrificed ! I fled from the wrath of Brama through all the forests of Asia.
Strana 320 - As the cradle of the human race, it would alone have a dim and reverential feeling connected with it. But there are other reasons. No man can pretend that the wild, barbarous, and capricious superstitions of Africa, or of savage tribes elsewhere, affect him in the way that he, is affected by the ancient, monumental, cruel, and elaborate religions of Indostan. etc. The mere antiquity of Asiatic things, of their institutions, histories, modes of faith, etc., is so impressive, that to me the vast age...
Strana 280 - That all men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to -the dictates of their own consciences ; that no man can, of right, be compelled to attend, erect, or support any place of worship, or to maintain any ministry against his consent; that no human authority can, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience ; and that no preference shall ever be given, by law, to any religious establishments or modes of worship.
Strana 357 - ... also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets...
Strana 282 - Hail, Source of Being ! Universal Soul Of heaven and earth ! Essential Presence, hail ! To Thee I bend the knee ; to Thee my thoughts, Continual, climb ; who, with a master-hand, Hast the great whole into perfection touch'd.
Strana 361 - CAREY (DAVID). Life in Paris; comprising the Rambles, Sprees, and Amours, of Dick Wildfire, of Corinthian Celebrity, and his Bang-up Companions, Squire Jenkins and Captain O'Shuffleton ; with the Whimsical Adventures of the Halibut Family; including Sketches of a Variety of other Eccentric Characters in the French Metropolis. With 21 COLORED PLATES representing scenes from real life, designed and etched by George Cruikshank, and 22 wood engravings by the same artist.
Strana 265 - But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea, so that the ship was like to be broken.
Strana 319 - I have thus described and illustrated my intellectual torpor, in terms that apply, more or less, to every part of the four years during which I was under the Circean spells of opium. But for misery and suffering, I might, indeed, be said to have existed in a dormant state. I seldom could prevail on myself to write a letter; an answer...
Strana 184 - On these thy spirit loved to dwell, Untainted by the world's control. My brother, those were happy days, When thou and I were children yet ; How fondly memory still surveys Those scenes, the heart can ne'er forget...
