Strana 294 - Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits, and Are melted into air, into thin air : And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve ; And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.
Strana 170 - tis not to me she speaks: Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven, Having some business, do entreat her eyes To twinkle in their spheres till they return.
Strana 294 - Stern Lawgiver! yet thou dost wear The Godhead's most benignant grace; Nor know we anything so fair As is the smile upon thy face: Flowers laugh before thee on their beds And fragrance in thy footing treads; Thou dost preserve the stars from wrong; And the most ancient heavens, through thee, Are fresh and strong.

Strana 151 - Watch the dim shades as like ghosts they go and come, And complicate strange webs of melancholy mirth. The leaves of wasted autumn woods shall float around thine head: The blooms of dewy spring shall gleam beneath thy feet: But thy soul, or this world, must fade in the frost that binds the dead, Ere midnight's frown and morning's smile, ere thou and peace may meet.
Strana 223 - Justice is a name for certain classes of moral rules, which concern the essentials of human well-being more nearly, and are therefore of more absolute obligation, than any other rules for the guidance of life...
Strana 545 - Thin, thin the pleasant human noises grow; And faint the city gleams; Rare the lone pastoral huts: marvel not thou! The solemn peaks but to the stars are known, But to the stars, and the cold lunar beams: Alone the sun arises, and alone Spring the great streams.
Strana 128 - Spinoza are necessarily suspended on the facts of immediate observation which they express in general terms, in words of second intention, as I should say ; and cannot have the facts suspended on them, as is the case in geometry, as if they were themselves facts of immediate certainty expressed in words of first intention. 4. The next thing which it is necessary to prove against Spinoza is, that his analysis of man into mind and body, in the Corollary to Prop. 13. Part ii., " Hence it follows that...
