Էջ 305 - O could I flow like thee, and make thy stream My great example, as it is my theme! Though deep, yet clear, though gentle, yet not dull, Strong without rage, without o'er-flowing full.
Էջ 132 - We have different views, to be sure, and if you will bear with me for a few moments I would like to outline the present situation.
Էջ 252 - Oh, a dainty plant is the Ivy green, That creepeth o'er ruins old ! Of right choice food are his meals I ween, In his cell so lone and cold.
Էջ 247 - Upon whose grassless floor of red-brown hue, By sheddings from the pining umbrage tinged Perennially — beneath whose sable roof Of boughs, as if for festal purpose decked With unrejoicing berries — ghostly Shapes May meet at noontide...
Էջ 120 - It is not, primarily, with a view to improvement in administration that this measure is put forward and supported.

Pharaohs and Ptolemies, Emirs and Arsacids, Judges and Consuls, had all contended for the mastery of that smiling tract. It had glittered with the lances of the Amalekites ; it had trembled under the chariot-wheels of Sesostris ; it had echoed the twanging bowstrings of Sennacherib ; it had been trodden by the phalanxes of Macedonia ; it had clashed with the broadswords of Rome...

It is not primarily with a view to improvement in administration that this measure is put forward and supported. It is chiefly desirable as an instrument of popular and political...

Էջ 390 - Regarding this as his political testament, he took leave of his countrymen, simply saying that his health was feeble. With not more dignity did Cardinal Wolsey lay his bones in the monastery, than did this Brahman Peshwa proceed towards his country seat to sink into premature death, with the consciousness that a Hindu empire had been erected over the ruins of Muhammadan power, and that -of this empire the hereditary headship had been secured for his family.
