Strana 284 - O, for my sake do you with Fortune chide, The guilty goddess of my harmful deeds, That did not better for my life provide Than public means which public manners breeds. Thence comes it that my name receives a brand, And almost thence my nature is subdued To what it works in, like the dyer's hand...
Strana 308 - Whither thou goest, I will go— thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God.
Strana 285 - : — " Some say, good Will, which I, in sport, do sing, Had'st thou not played some kingly parts in sport, Thou hadst been a companion for a king, And been a King among the meaner sort.
Strana 28 - Countries wear very different appearances to travellers of different circumstances. A man who is whirled through Europe in a post-chaise, and the pilgrim who walks the grand tour on foot, will form very different conclusions.

Strana 78 - In the pauses of the showers, you heard the rumbling of the earth beneath, and the groaning waves of the tortured sea ; or, lower still, and audible but to the watch of intensest fear, the grinding and hissing murmur of the escaping gases through the chasms of the distant mountain.
Strana 328 - All you want, at present, is quiet ; with this, if your ardour apHrreusiv can be kept in, till you are stronger, you will make noise enough. How happy the task, my noble amiable boy, to caution you only against pursuing too much, all those liberal and praiseworthy things, to which less happy natures are perpetually to be spurred and driven ! I will not tease you with too long a lecture in favour of inaction, and a competent stupidity, your two best tutors and companions at present.
