Strana 68 - THE SEA. The Sea ! the Sea ! the open Sea ! The blue, the fresh, the ever free ! Without a mark, without a bound, It runneth the earth's wide regions 'round ; It plays with the clouds ; it mocks the skies ; Or like a cradled creature lies.
Strana 7 - Imlac,) I will not undertake to maintain, against the concurrent and unvaried testimony of all ages, and of all nations. There is no people, rude or learned, among whom apparitions of the dead are not related and believed. This opinion, which prevails as far as human nature is diffused, could become universal only by its truth...
Strana 13 - On some fond breast the parting soul relies, Some pious drops the closing eye requires; E'en from the tomb the voice of Nature cries, E'en in our ashes live their wonted fires. For thee, who, mindful of th...
Strana 117 - You have among you many a purchased slave, Which, like your asses and your dogs and mules, You use in abject and in slavish parts, Because you bought them...

Strana 222 - Fie, fie upon her! There's language in her eye, her cheek, her lip, Nay, her foot speaks ; her wanton spirits look out At every joint and motive of her body.

That it is doubted by single cavillers can very little weaken the general evidence, and some who deny it with their tongues, confess it by their fears.
Strana 73 - For he who fights and runs away May live to fight another day ; But he who is in battle slain Can never rise and fight again.
Strana 2 - CLARKE'S (DR. ADAM) CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY. By DUNN. 12mo. .066 LETTER TO A YOUNG PREACHER, AND TRAVELLER'S PRAYER 026 SERMONS. With great Additions. 4 vols. . .140 COOPER'S SERMONS ON THE LEADING DOCTRINES OF THE GOSPEL 080 PRACTICAL AND FAMILIAR . .030 CHILLINGWORTH'S THEOLOGICAL WORKS.
Strana 152 - And let those that play your clowns speak no more than is set down for them - for there be of them that will themselves laugh, to set on some quantity of barren spectators to laugh too, though in the meantime some necessary question of the play be then to be considered. That's villainous, and shows a most pitiful ambition in the fool that uses it.
