Էջ 380 - upon the trees that are therein. For they that led us away captive required of us then a song, and melody in our heaviness. Sing us one of the songs of Sion. How shall we sing the Lord's Song in a strange land ? If I forget thee, 0 Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her
Էջ 573 - 0, that this too too solid flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew ! Or that the Everlasting had not fix'd His canon 'gainst self-slaughter ! 0 God ! O God I How weary, stale, flat, and unprofitable, Seem to me all
Էջ 692 - had an excellent Phantasy ; brave notions and gentle expressions : wherein he flowed with that facility that sometime it was necessary he should be stopped. ' Sufflaminandus erat,' as Augustus said of Haterius. His wit was in his own power; would the rule of it had been so too.

Էջ 687 - it that every one from whence they came Had meant to put his whole wit in a jest, And had resolved to live a fool the rest Of his dull life.
Էջ 687 - Say how or when Shall we, thy guests, Meet at thoae lyric feasts, Made at the Sun, The Dog, the Triple Tun ; Where we such clusters had, As made us nobly wild, not mad ? And yet each verse of thine Out-did the meat, out-did the frolic wine.
Էջ 381 - power. Praise him in his noble acts : praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him in the sound of the trumpet: praise him upon the lute and harp. Praise him in the cymbals and dances : praise him upon the strings and pipe. Praise him upon the well-tuned cymbals: praise him upon the loud cymbals. Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord.
Էջ 690 - a contemner and scorner of others, given rather to lose a friend than a jest, jealous of every word and action of those about him (especially after drink, which is one of the elements in which he liveth), and
