Strana 5 - But first I mean To exercise him in the wilderness; There he shall first lay down the rudiments Of his great warfare, ere I send him forth To conquer Sin and Death, the two grand foes, By humiliation and strong sufferance...
Strana 50 - Where on the ^Egean shore a city stands Built nobly, pure the air, and light the soil ; Athens, the eye of Greece, mother of arts And eloquence, native to famous wits Or hospitable, in her sweet recess, City or suburban, studious walks and shades ; See there the olive grove of Academe, Plato's retirement, where the Attic bird Trills her thick-warbled notes the summer long ; There flowery hill Hymettus, with the sound Of bees...

Strana vii - This is owing to you, for you put it into my head by the question you put to me at Chalfont, which before I had not thought of.
Strana 52 - Or, if I would delight my private hours With music or with poem, where so soon As in our native language, can I find That solace? All our law and story strew'd With hymns, our psalms with artful terms inscribed, Our Hebrew songs and harps, in Babylon That pleased so well our victors...
Strana 51 - Alas! what can they teach, and not mislead; Ignorant of themselves, of God much more, And how the world began, and how man fell Degraded by himself, on grace depending?
