Page xcvi - Less than archangel ruined, and the excess Of glory obscured ; as when the sun, new risen, Looks through the horizontal misty air Shorn of his beams, or from behind the moon, In dim eclipse, disastrous twilight sheds On half the nations, and with fear of change Perplexes monarchs.
Page xcix - HIGH on a throne of royal state, which far Outshone the wealth of Ormus and of Ind, Or where the gorgeous East with richest hand Showers on her kings barbaric pearl and gold...
Page 299 - The world is still deceiv'd with ornament. In law, what plea so tainted and corrupt But, being season'd with a gracious voice, Obscures the show of evil? In religion, What damned error but some sober brow Will bless it, and approve it with a text, Hiding the grossness with fair ornament?

Ne crains plus tant ces jours de courses vaines Où notre destin fut pareil; Ces jours mêlés de plaisirs et de peines, Mêlés de pluie et de soleil.
Page xcvi - Like all that pertains to crime, it seemed never to have known a youthful era. Before this ugly edifice, and between it and the wheel-track of the street, was a grass-plot, much overgrown with burdock, pigweed, apple-peru, and such unsightly vegetation, which evidently found something congenial in the soil that had so early borne the black flower of civilized society, a prison.
Page 307 - SOIS-MOI fidèle, ô pauvre habit que j'aime ! Ensemble nous devenons vieux. Depuis dix ans je te brosse moi-même , Et Socrate n'eût pas fait mieux. Quand le sort à ta mince étoffe Livrerait de nouveaux combats , Imite-moi; résiste en philosophe. Mon vieil ami , ne nous séparons pas. Je nie souviens , car j'ai bonne mémoire , Du premier jour où je te mis.
Page xiv - ... and virtue can alone make you esteemed and valued by mankind ; that parts and learning can alone make you admired and celebrated by them ; but that the possession of lesser talents was most absolutely necessary towards making you liked, beloved, and sought after. in private life. Of these lesser talents, good breeding is the principal and most necessary one, not only as...
