Strana 110 - My curtains drawn and all is snug ; Old Puss is in her elbow-chair, And Tray is sitting on the rug. Last night I had a curious dream ; Miss Susan Bates was Mistress Mogg — What d'ye think of that, my Cat ? What d'ye think of that, my Dog ? She...
Strana 110 - THE BACHELOR'S DREAM MY pipe is lit, my grog is mix'd, My curtains drawn and all is snug ; Old Puss is in her elbow-chair, And Tray is sitting on the rug. Last night I had a curious dream, Miss Susan Bates was Mistress Mogg — What d'ye think of that, my Cat?
Strana 104 - A wife, a spaniel, and a walnut-tree, The more you beat them, the better they be.
Strana 151 - The natural (or merely worldly-wise) man, receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God ; for they are foolishness unto him : neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned." They are "hid from the wise and prudent, and revealed unto babes...
Strana 217 - What with bond fide eating, and then a material review of that process, with her eyes shut, she makes the most of a mouthful. But for steady consistent application commend me to a grub. While in that state, the quantity of food consumed by insects is vastly greater, in proportion to their bulk, than that required by larger animals. Some caterpillars eat twice their weight of leaves daily — which is, as if a man of twelve stone were to get through something over two hundred legs of mutton in the...
Strana 54 - ... navigated the arena. All at once one of the dragons flew upon the other with open mouth, and ate him before the audience. How they wrestled and smacked their tails about; but one ate the other at last, growing perceptibly bigger as the victim expired and shrank to his skin ! Had they been dogs it would have been a brutal exhibition, notwithstanding the delight they take in barking and biting. As it was, the cruel conqueror enjoyed himself without any cries of shame; indeed, I have no doubt the...
Strana 11 - These need the rare faith which can look beyond what men call success, which can steadily bear witness to truth and righteousness in spite of indifference, which does not depend for its energy upon the artificial stimulus of praise or opposition, but draws its life from a divine and invisible spring ; bearing up buoyantly in the still deep waters of cold isolation, holding fast to noble principles in the midst of petty stratagems and ephemeral expediency, still blowing at the little spark of right...
Strana 208 - ... have an intensity of flavour such as no two other dishes ever combined. The cold dinner has a character which it does not deserve ; being socially despised, it is often served without care. Such however is the way of the world : the man who has little but plain sense to recommend him is made the worst of; like cold boiled mutton...
Strana 192 - ... busy chatterers, while the others converse. To an unpractised eye they look alike at a distance when the grey head is undistinguishable. I think, however, I could pick every jackdaw out of a flight of rooks. They are not only smaller, but the pulsations of the wing are much more rapid. Their note when flying is much more frequent than that of the rooks ; indeed, like most chatterboxes, they appear to the inexperienced more numerous and influential than they really are.
Strana 216 - Some insects are endowed with an appetite so keen, and a digestion so rapid, that they eat incessantly throughout the whole of their lives. They begin as soon as they are born, and go steadily on till they die. Their existence is a feast, without a change of plates, or a pause between the courses. Morning, noon, and night, their mouths are full, and...
