Seite 61 - I'd have you buy and sell so ; so give alms ; Pray so; and for the ordering your affairs, To sing them too. When you do dance, I wish you A wave o' the sea, that you might ever do Nothing but that ; move still, still so, and own No other function.
Seite 189 - How dear to me the hour when daylight dies, And sun-beams melt along the silent sea, For then sweet dreams of other days arise, And memory breathes her vesper sigh to thee.
Seite 64 - O, she doth teach the torches to burn bright! Her beauty hangs upon the cheek of night Like a rich jewel in an Ethiop's ear: Beauty too rich for use, for earth too dear!
Seite 226 - Ah luckless babe, born under cruel star, And in dead parents' baleful ashes bred ; Full little weenest thou what sorrows are Left thee for portion of thy livelyhed.
Seite 226 - Poore orphane in the wide world scattered, As budding braunch rent from the native tree, And throwen forth, till it be withered; Such is the state of men: thus enter wee Into this life with woe, and end with miseree.
Seite 108 - When Glory, like the dazzling Eagle, stood Perch'd on my Beaver, in the Granic Flood, When Fortune's Self my Standard trembling bore, And the pale Fates stood frighted on the Shore, When the Immortals on the Billows rode, And I myself appear'd the leading God.
Seite 239 - Which kings have seldom power to give. "Since from an ancient race descended You boast an unattainted blood, By yours be their fair fame attended, And claim by birth-right to be good. «' In love for ev'ry fellow creature Superior rise above the crowd, What most ennobles human nature Was ne'er the portion of the proud. " Be thine the gen'rous heart that borrows From others' joys a friendly glow, And for each hapless neighbour's sorrows Throbs with a sympathetic woe.
Seite 162 - Pride, of all others the most dangerous fault, Proceeds from want of sense, or want of thought; The men who labour and digest things most Will be much apter to despond than boast; For if your author be profoundly good, Twill cost you dear before he 's understood.
