Էջ 279 - Under an oak, whose antique root peeps out Upon the brook that brawls along this wood : To the which place a poor ^sequester'd stag, That from the hunter's aim had ta'en a hurt...
Էջ 283 - O thou! whose glory fills the ethereal throne, And all ye deathless powers! protect my son! Grant him, like me, to purchase just renown, To guard the Trojans, to defend the crown, Against his country's foes the war to wage, And rise the Hector of the future age! So when triumphant from successful toils Of heroes slain he bears the reeking spoils, Whole hosts may hail him with deserved acclaim, And say, 'This chief transcends his father's fame.' While pleased amidst the general shouts of Troy, His...
Էջ 106 - Je sais ce que je vaux, et crois ce qu'on m'en dit. Pour me faire admirer je ne fais point de ligue : J'ai peu de voix pour moi , mais je les ai sans brigue ; Et mon ambition, pour faire plus de bruit...

Էջ 275 - ... human, angel, man, Beast, bird, fish, insect, what no eye can see, No glass can reach; from Infinite to thee, From thee to nothing. On superior...
Էջ 272 - The birds their quire apply ; airs, vernal airs, Breathing the smell of field and grove, attune The trembling leaves, while universal Pan, Knit with the Graces and the Hours in dance, Led on the eternal Spring.
Էջ 49 - Twere simple fury still thyself to waste On such as have no taste ! To offer them a surfeit of pure bread, Whose appetites are dead ! No, give them grains their fill, Husks, draff to drink and swill : If they love lees, and leave the lusty wine, Envy them not, their palate's with the swine.
Էջ 410 - When a man writes to the world, he summons up all his reason and deliberation to assist him ; he searches, meditates, is industrious, and likely consults and confers with his judicious friends ; after all which done, he takes himself to be informed in what he writes, as well as any that writ before him...
