Seite 715 - Now stir the fire, and close the shutters fast, Let fall the curtains, wheel the sofa round, And while the bubbling and loud-hissing urn Throws up a steamy column, and the cups, That cheer but not inebriate, wait on each, So let us welcome peaceful evening in.
Seite 490 - Eating the Lotos day by day, To watch the crisping ripples on the beach, And tender curving lines of creamy spray ; To lend our hearts and spirits wholly...
Seite 351 - Rich, silent, deep, they stand ; for not a gale Rolls its light billows o'er the bending plain : A calm of plenty ! till the ruffled air Falls from its poise, and gives the breeze to blow. Rent is the fleecy mantle of the sky ; The clouds fly different; and the sudden sun . !.'.. By fits effulgent gilds th' illumin'd field, And black by fits the shadows sweep along.
Seite 81 - I still remember that the spinning of a top is a case of Kinetic Stability. I still remember that Emphyteusis is not a disease, nor Stillicide a crime. But though I would not willingly part with such scraps of science, I do not set the same store by them...
Seite 710 - Let us not be found, when our Master calls us, stripping the lace off our waistcoats, but the spirit of contention from our souls and tongues. Alas ! sir, a man who cannot get to heaven in a green coat will not find his way thither the sooner in a grey one.

We may conceive Mr. Worldly Wiseman accosting such an one and the conversation that should thereupon ensue: "How now, young fellow, what dost thou here?" "Truly, sir, I take mine ease." "Is not this the hour of the class? and shouldst thou not be plying thy Book with diligence, to the end thou mayest obtain knowledge?" "Nay, but thus also I follow after Learning, by your...
Seite 725 - You are not to suppose any of the characters in ' Shirley ' intended as literal portraits. It would not suit the rules of art, nor of my own feelings, to write in that style. We only suffer reality to suggest, never to dictate.
Seite 425 - They have likewise discovered two lesser stars, or satellites, which revolve about Mars ; whereof the innermost is distant from the centre of the primary planet exactly three of his diameters, and the outermost, five ; the former revolves in the space of ten hours, and the latter in twenty-one and a half...
Seite 85 - Look at one of your industrious fellows for a moment, I beseech you. He sows hurry and reaps indigestion ; he puts a vast deal of activity out to interest, and receives a large measure of nervous derangement in return. Either he absents himself entirely from all fellowship, and lives a recluse in a garret, with carpet slippers and a leaden inkpot; or he comes among people swiftly and bitterly, in a contraction of his whole nervous system, to discharge some temper before he returns to work. I do not...
