Էջ 14 - Things vulgar, and, well weigh'd, scarce worth the praise ? They praise, and they admire, they know not what, And know not whom, but as one leads the other ; And what delight to be by such extoll'd, To live upon their tongues, and be their talk, Of whom to be dispraised were no small praise ? His lot who dares be singularly good.
Էջ 66 - Of all the gentle tenants of the place, There was a man of special grave remark : A certain tender gloom o'erspread his face, Pensive, not sad ; in thought...
Էջ 143 - With eye attentive mark the springing game. Straight as above the surface of the flood They wanton rise, or urged by hunger leap, Then fix, with gentle twitch, the barbed hook : Some lightly tossing to the grassy bank, And to the shelving shore slow-dragging some, With various hand proportion'd to their force.

Էջ 490 - ... congiunto tutte le sue bandiere al vento scioglie: e nel vessillo imperiale e grande la trionfante Croce al ciel si spande. 73 Intanto il sol, che de...
Էջ 83 - For else how should his sonne maintained be At Inns of Court or of the Chancery : There to learn law, and courtly carriage, To make amends for his mean parentage ; Where he, unknowne, and ruffling as he can, Goes current ech-whcre for n gentleman ? While yet he rousteth at some uncouth signe, Nor never red his tenure's second line.
Էջ 278 - By glimpse of moon-shine, chequering through the trees, The school-boy, with his satchel in his hand, Whistling aloud to bear his courage up, And lightly tripping o'er the long flat stones, (With nettles skirted, and with moss o'ergrown) That tell in homely phrase who lie below. Sudden he starts, and hears...
