Strana 109 - At a fair vestal, throned by the west ; And loosed his love-shaft smartly from his bow, As it should pierce a hundred thousand hearts : But I might see young Cupid's fiery shaft Quenched in the chaste beams of the watery moon ; And the imperial votaress passed on, In maiden meditation, fancy-free.
Strana 101 - The most striking characteristic of the poetry of Milton is the extreme remoteness of the associations by means of which it acts on the reader.

Strana 550 - The works of Quintus Horatius Flaccus illustrated chiefly from the remains of ancient art. With a Life by the Rev. Henry Hart Milman, Canon of St.
Strana 103 - Many thousands of square miles, which are now rich corn land and meadow, intersected by green hedge-rows, and dotted with villages and pleasant country seats, would appear as moors overgrown with furze, or fens abandoned to wild ducks. We should see straggling huts built of wood, and covered with thatch, where we now see manufacturing towns, and sea-ports renowned to the farthest...
Strana 144 - BETTER trust all, and be deceived. And weep that trust and that deceiving, Than doubt one heart that if believed Had blessed one's life with true believing.
