Strana 41 - Like leaves on trees the race of man is found, Now green in youth, now withering on the ground; Another race the following spring supplies; They fall successive, and successive rise : So generations in their course decay; So flourish these, when those are pass'd away.
Strana 55 - Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier, Full of strange oaths and bearded like the pard, Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel, Seeking the bubble reputation Even in the cannon's mouth. And then the justice, In fair round belly with good capon...
Strana 35 - Tis not a lip, or eye, we beauty call, But the joint force and full result of all. Thus when we view some well-proportion'd dome, (The world's just wonder, and ev'n thine, O Rome!) No single parts unequally surprise, All comes united to th' admiring eyes; No monstrous height, or breadth or length appear; The whole at once is bold and regular.
Strana 42 - Our fons their father's failing language fee, And fuch as Chaucer is, fhall Dryden be. So when the faithful pencil has defign'd Some bright idea of the mafter's mind, Where a new world leaps out at his command, And ready nature waits upon his hand...
Strana 205 - Plunged fairly in, like a cold bath it serves, When principles relax, to brace the nerves: Such is my case; and yet I must deplore That the gay dream of dissipation's o'er.
Strana 6 - U t silvae foliis pronos mutantur in annos ; Prima cadunt : ita verborum vetus interit aetas, Et juvenum ritu florent modo nata vigentque.
Strana 206 - The welcome visitors' approach denote; Farewell all quality of high .renown, Pride, pomp, and circumstance of glorious town! Farewell! your revels I partake no more, And Lady Teazle's occupation's o'er! All this I told our bard; he smiled, and said 'twas clear, I ought to play deep tragedy next year.
Strana 8 - Munus et officium, nil scribens ipse, docebo ; Unde parentur opes ; quid alat formetque poetam ; Quid deceat, quid non ; quo virtus, quo ferat error.
Strana 204 - Old bachelors, who marry smart young wives, Learn from our play to regulate your lives: Each bring his dear to town, all faults upon her — London will prove the very source of honour.
