Strana 109 - I'll kneel down, And ask of thee forgiveness; so we'll live, // And pray, and sing, and tell old tales, and laugh At gilded butterflies, and hear poor rogues Talk of court news; and we'll talk with them too, Who loses and who wins; who's in, who's out; And take...
Strana 233 - To reform and not to chastise I am afraid is impossible, and that the best precepts, as well as the best laws, would prove of small use if there were no examples to enforce them. To attack vices in the abstract, without touching persons, may be safe fighting indeed, but it is fighting with shadows.
Strana 287 - Good name in man and woman, dear my lord, Is the immediate jewel of their souls : Who steals my purse, steals trash ; 'tis something, nothing ; 'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands : But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him, And makes me poor indeed, Oth.
Strana 177 - will you please to eat a piece of beef with me? Mr. Lintot," said he, "I am very sorry you should be at the expense of this great book, I am really concerned on your account.
Strana 178 - Sir, I am much obliged to you: if you can dine upon a piece of beef; together with a slice of pudding Mr. Lintot, I do not say but Mr. Pope, if he would condescend to advise with men of learning Sir, the pudding is upon the table, if you please to go in.

Which not even critics criticise, that holds Inquisitive attention while I read Fast bound in chains of silence, which the fair, Though eloquent themselves, yet fear to break, What is it but a map of busy life, Its fluctuations and its vast concerns?
Strana 94 - How small of all that human hearts endure, That part which laws or kings can cause or cure.
Strana 326 - Cataracts of declamation thunder here, There forests of no meaning spread the page In which all comprehension wanders lost; While fields of pleasantry amuse us there With merry descants on a nation's woes. The rest appears a wilderness of strange But gay confusion ; roses for the cheeks And lilies for the brows of faded age, Teeth for the toothless, ringlets for the bald...
Strana 415 - ... ascertained and notorious; nothing is left to arbitrary discretion: the king by his judges dispenses what the law has previously ordained; but is not himself the legislator. How much therefore is it to be regretted that a set of men, whose bravery has so often preserved the liberties of their country, should be reduced to a state of servitude in the midst of a nation of freemen!
Strana 406 - Show, music, action, and rhetoric, are moving entertainments; and, rightly employed, would be very significant. But force and motion are things indifferent, and the use lies chiefly in the application. These advantages are now in the enemies' hand, and under a very dangerous management.
