Strana 512 - Be it a weakness, it deserves some praise, We love the play-place of our early days. The scene is touching, and the heart is stone That feels not at that sight, and feels at none.
Strana 491 - The times have been That, when the brains were out, the man would die, And there an end ; but now they rise again, With twenty mortal murders on their crowns, And push us from our stools.
Strana 407 - There are a sort of men whose visages Do cream and mantle like a standing pond...
Strana 120 - Yes, thus the Muses sing of happy swains, Because the Muses never knew their pains: They boast their peasants' pipes; but peasants now Resign their pipes and plod behind the plough; And few, amid the...
Strana 439 - ... do thy diligence gladly to give of that little : for so gatherest thou thyself a good reward in the day of necessity. Tobit iv. He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord : and look, what he layeth out, it shall be paid him again. Prov. xix. Blessed be the man that provideth for the sick and needy : the Lord shall deliver him in the time of trouble.
