By these means he hoped he should induce him to think of virtue without disgust, and at length to embrace it's precepts with pleasure.
Strana 75 - That men's desiring eyes were never wearied, But hung upon the object. To soft flutes The silver oars kept time; and while they played, The hearing gave new pleasure to the sight, And both to thought.
Strana 78 - When the day following came, the vessel was crowded with people ; and as soon as Antony had let down his line, she ordered one of her divers immediately to put a salt fish on his hook.
