Strana 228 - And then thou must be damn'd perpetually! Stand still, you ever-moving spheres of Heaven, That time may cease, and midnight never come; Fair Nature's eye, rise, rise again and make Perpetual day; or let this hour be but A year, a month, a week, a natural day, That Faustus may repent and save his soul!
Strana 186 - Shall I make spirits fetch me what I please, Resolve me of all ambiguities, Perform what desperate enterprise I will? I'll have them fly to India for gold, Ransack the ocean for orient pearl, And search all corners of the new-found world For pleasant fruits and princely delicates...
Strana 23 - The reluctant pangs of abdicating royalty in Edward furnished hints which Shakspeare scarcely improved in his Richard the Second; and the death-scene of Marlowe's king moves pity and terror beyond any scene ancient or modern with which I am acquainted.
Strana 184 - Such is the subject of the Institute And universal Body of the Law. This study fits a mercenary drudge, Who aims at nothing but external trash; Too servile and illiberal for me. When all is done divinity is best; Jerome's Bible, Faustus, view it well. [Reads. Stipendium peccati mors est. Ha! Stipendium, etc. The reward of sin is death.

Strana 383 - Two kings in England cannot reign at once. But stay awhile, let me be king till night, That I may gaze upon this glittering crown; So shall my eyes receive their last content, My head, the latest honour due to it, And jointly both yield up their wished right. Continue ever thou celestial sun; Let never silent night possess this clime : Stand still you watches...
Strana 19 - tis a lost fear; Man but a rush against Othello's breast, And he retires. Where should Othello go? Now, how dost thou look now? O ill-starr'd wench! Pale as thy smock! when we shall meet at compt, This look of thine will hurl my soul from heaven, And fiends will snatch at it.
Strana 226 - O thou art fairer than the evening air Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars...
Strana 319 - Adieu, my lord; and either change your mind, Or look to see the throne, where you should sit, To float in blood; and at thy wanton head, The glozing" head of thy base minion thrown.
