Strana 449 - So many mermaids, tended her i' the eyes, And made their bends adornings ; at the helm A seeming mermaid steers; the silken tackle Swell with the touches of those flower-soft hands That yarely frame the office. From the barge A strange invisible perfume hits the sense Of the adjacent wharfs. The city cast Her people out upon her, and Antony, Enthron'd i...
Strana 181 - God loves from Whole to Parts: but human soul Must rise from Individual to the Whole. Self-love but serves the virtuous mind to wake, As the small pebble stirs the peaceful lake; The centre mov'd, a circle straight succeeds, Another still, and still another spreads; Friend, parent, neighbour, first it will embrace; His country next; and next all human race; Wide and more wide, th...

Strana 454 - Women are angels, wooing : Things won are done ; joy's soul lies in the doing : That she belov'd knows nought that knows not this : Men prize the thing ungain'd more than it is : That she was never yet that ever knew Love got so sweet as when desire did sue. Therefore this maxim out of love I teach : Achievement is command ; ungain'd, beseech...
Strana 394 - ... marble, two fountains that spout water one round the other like a pyramid, upon which are perched small birds that stream water out of their bills : In the grove of Diana is a very agreeable fountain, with Actaeon turned into a stag, as he was sprinkled by the goddess and her nymphs, with inscriptions.
Strana 349 - wot I well ;' and then it will run thus ; . This rehearsal (Which fury innocent, wot I well, comes in Like old cmportment's bastard) has this end,' &c.

Strana 241 - And on his grave Let him have Sacrifice of sighs and groaning ; Let him have fair flowers enow, White and purple, green and yellow, For him that...
