Strana 207 - The Doctor told me, that he had not seen the King yesterday, but had left a note in writing, to intimate, that I was to be at his house to-day ; and that one of the King's pages had come to him this morning, to say, " that his Majesty would see me a little after " twelve." At twelve, the Doctor and I went to the King's house, at Kew. We had been only a few minutes in the hall, when the King and Queen came in from an airing ; and, as they passed through the hall, the King called to me by name, and...
Strana 207 - Essay ? praised the caution with which it was written ; and said, he did not wonder that it had employed me five or six years. He asked about my poems. I said, there was only one poem of my own, on which I set any value (meaning the Minstrel), and that it was first published about the same time with the Essay.
Strana 4 - To bleed for man, to teach him how to live, And oh ! still harder lesson ! how to die ; Disdain not Thou to smooth the restless bed Of Sickness and of Pain. Forgive the tear That feeble Nature drops, calm all her fears, Wake all her hopes, and animate her faith, Till my rapt soul, anticipating Heav'n, Bursts from the thraldom of incumb'ring clay, And on the wing of ecstasy upborne, Springs into Liberty, and Light, and Life.
Strana 207 - We had much conversation on moral subjects ; from which both their Majesties let it appear, that they were warm friends to Christianity ; and so little inclined to infidelity, that they could hardly believe that any thinking man could really be an atheist, unless he could bring himself to believe, that he made himself; a thought which pleased the King exceedingly ; and he repeated it several times to the Queen.
Strana 207 - Edinburgh last summer, and how Mr. Hume was offended on the score of my book. He asked many questions about the second part of the Essay, and when it would be ready for the press. I gave him, in a short speech, an account of the plan of it; and said, my health was so precarious I could not tell when it would be ready...
Strana 4 - At thy good time Let Death approach ; I reck not — let him but come In genuine form, not with thy vengeance arm'd, Too much for man to bear. O rather lend Thy kindly aid to mitigate his stroke...
Strana 453 - ... long habit, the remembrance of so many illustrious periods, and so many various and mutual relations, had rendered dear to such a number of princes — which had so often been guaranteed by all the European powers, and even by France herself — to lay contributions on the cities and towns in the midst of profound peace, and leave the new possessions only an exhausted skeleton — to abolish this constitution without consulting the emperor of Germany...
Strana 4 - O rather lend Thy kindly aid to mitigate his stroke, And at that hour when all aghast I stand (A trembling candidate for thy compassion) On this world's brink, and look into the next ; When my soul, starting from the dark unknown...
Strana 4 - Yet still they breathe destruction, still go on Inhumanly ingenious to find out New pains for life, new terrors for the grave. Artificers of Death ! Still monarchs dream Of universal empire growing up From universal ruin. Blast the design, Great God of Hosts, nor let thy creatures fall Unpitied victims at Ambition's shrine...
