Seite 98 - And indeed a child of the public he is in all respects ; for while so well able to direct others, how incapable is he frequently found of guiding himself !

Seite 301 - Upon a brow more fierce than that, — Sullenly fierce — a mixture dire, Like thunder-clouds, of gloom and fire; In which the Peri's eye could read Dark tales of many a ruthless deed; The ruin'd maid — the shrine profaned — Oaths broken — and the threshold stain'd With blood of guests!

God has preserved to me my senses : I eat, and drink, and sle.ep, and have my judgement, I believe, very sound.
Seite 15 - Scottish descent, and flourished at the end of the sixth and the beginning of the seventh century, having died in the year of our Lord 606.
Seite 511 - Queen," wrote one who had seen her, " howsoever little of stature, is of spirit and vigour, and seems of more than ordinary resolution. With one frown, divers of us being at Whitehall to see her, being at dinner, and the room somewhat overheated with the fire and company, she drove us all out of the chamber. I suppose none but a Queen could have cast such a scowl.
Seite 411 - Latona's twin-born progenie Which after held the Sun and Moon in fee. But this is got by casting Pearl to Hoggs ; That bawle for freedom in their senceless mood, And still revolt when truth would set them free. Licence they mean when they cry libertie; For who loves that, must first be wise and good ; But from that mark how far they roave we see For all this wast of wealth, and loss of blood.
