Strana 80 - Lives through all life, extends through all extent, Spreads undivided, operates unspent ; Breathes in our soul, informs our mortal part, As full, as perfect in a hair as heart ; As full, as perfect in vile man that mourns, As the rapt seraph that adores and burns. To Him no high, no low, no great, no small ; He fills, He bounds, connects and equals all.
Strana 80 - That, changed through all, and yet in all the same; Great in the earth, as in the ethereal frame; Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze, Glows in the stars, and blossoms in the trees; Lives through all life, extends through all extent; Spreads undivided, operates unspent!
Strana 192 - Pretty ! in amber to observe the forms Of hairs, or straws, or dirt, or grubs, or worms ! The things, we know, are neither rich nor rare, But wonder how the devil they got there.

A dreadful noise was heard on its approach, that alarmed the whole city. It passed over...
Strana 333 - Ask where's the North? at York, 'tis on the Tweed; In Scotland, at the Orcades; and there, At Greenland, Zembla, or the Lord knows where.
Strana 236 - ... years, yet none are reduced to skeletons. The muscles, indeed, in some appear to be a good deal more shrunk than in others ; probably because these persons had been more extenuated at the time of their death. Here the people of Palermo pay daily visits to their deceased friends, and recall with pleasure and regret the scenes of their past life.
Strana 47 - The air, strongly impregnated with this matter, and confined betwixt two ridges of mountains — at the same time exceedingly agitated from below by the violence of the current, and the impetuous whirling of the waters — may it not be supposed to produce a variety of appearances ? And may not the lively Sicilian imaginations, animated by a belief in demons, and all the wild offspring of superstition, give these appearances as great a variety of forms ? Remember, I do not say it is so ; and hope...
