Strana 18 - To help me through this long disease, my life, To second, Arbuthnot ! thy art and care, And teach the being you preserved, to bear.
Strana 136 - A True Relation of the Apparition of one Mrs. Veal, the next day after her death, to one Mrs. Bargrave, at Canterbury, the 8th of September, 1705, which apparition recommends the perusal of Drelincourt's book of ' Consolations against the fears of Death.
Strana 121 - No more — no more — Oh! never more on me The freshness of the heart can fall like dew, Which out of all the lovely things we see Extracts emotions beautiful and new, Hived in our bosoms like the bag o' the bee: Think'st thou the honey with those objects grew?
Strana 14 - Bestia's from the throne. Born to no pride, inheriting no strife, Nor marrying discord in a noble wife...
Strana 41 - Like rose-buds, stuck i'the lily-skin about. Each little pimple had a tear in it, To wail the fault its rising did commit ; Which, rebel-like, with its own lord at strife, Thus made an insurrection 'gainst his life.

Parents first season us ; then schoolmasters Deliver us to laws ; they send us bound To rules of reason, holy messengers, Pulpits and Sundays, sorrow dogging sin, Afflictions sorted, anguish of all sizes, Fine nets and stratagems to catch us in, Bibles laid open, millions of surprises ; Blessings beforehand, ties of gratefulness, The sound of Glory ringing in our ears : Without, our shame ; within, our consciences ; Angels and grace, eternal hopes...
Strana 17 - When I had done with my priests, I took to reading by myself, for which I had a very great eagerness and enthusiasm, especially for poetry: and in a few years I had dipped into a great number of the English, French, Italian, Latin, and Greek poets. This I did...
Strana 145 - Then said they, Come, and let us devise devices against Jeremiah ; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.
Strana 26 - A KEY TO THE LOCK: OR A TREATISE, Proving beyond all contradiction the dangerous tendency of a late poem, intitled, The Rape of the Lock, to government and religion.
