Seite 259 - And, he gave it for his opinion, that, whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass, to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together.
Seite 172 - Now, Spring returns : but not to me returns The vernal joy my better years have known ; Dim in my breast life's dying taper burns, And all the joys of life with health are flown.

Seite 172 - And count the silent moments as they pass; — "The winged moments, whose unstaying speed No art can stop or in their course arrest, Whose flight shall shortly count me with the dead, And lay me down in peace with them that rest.
Seite 204 - He found in them the guileless manner of the earliest times, with the culture and accomplishment of the most refined ones. Every better feeling, warm and vivid; every ungentle one, repressed or overcome. He was not addicted to love; but he felt himself happy in being the friend of Mademoiselle La Roche, and sometimes envied her father the possession of such a child. After a journey of eleven days they arrived at the dwelling of La Roche. It was situated in one of those valleys of the canton of Berne,...
Seite 58 - When the world is dark with tempests, when thunder rolls, and lightning flies, thou lookest in thy beauty from the clouds, and laughest at the storm.
