Strana 112 - In every government, though terrors reign, Though tyrant kings, or tyrant laws restrain, How small, of all that human hearts endure, That part which laws or kings can cause or cure. Still to ourselves in every place consign'd, Our own felicity we make or find : With secret course, which no loud storms annoy, Glides the smooth current of domestic joy.
Strana 184 - Wisdom thy sister, and with her didst play In presence of the Almighty Father, pleas'd With thy celestial song. Or other worlds they seem'd, or happy isles, Like those Hesperian gardens fam'd of old, Fortunate fields, and groves, and flow'ry vales, Thrice happy isles! But who dwelt happy there, He stay'd not to
Strana 167 - both stood, Both turn'd, and under open sky ador'd The God that made both sky, air, earth, and heav'n, Which they beheld ; the moon's resplendent globe, And starry pole : thou also mad'st the night, Maker omnipotent! and thou the day, Which we in our appointed work employ'd

Strana 31 - Surely Sir John Falstaff himself did not wear his petticoats with a worse grace. The reader may well cry out with honest Sir Hugh Evans, ' I like not when a 'oman has a great peard: I spy a great peard under her muffler.'
Strana 41 - hast attain'd the sum Of wisdom ; hope no higher, though all the stars Thou knew'st by name, and all th' ethereal powers, All secrets of the deep, all nature's works, Or works of God in heav'n, air, earth, or sea.
