Strana 267 - English man-of-war; Master Coleridge, like the former, was built far higher in learning, solid, but slow in his performances. CVL, with the English man-of-war, lesser in bulk, but lighter in sailing, could turn with all tides, tack about, and take advantage of all winds by the quickness of his wit and invention.
Strana 145 - Lord, I my vows to thee renew; Disperse my sins as morning dew.'* May we not also say that when the evening hymn is heard, like the sounds that bid farewell to evening's parting plain, it fills the silent heart with devotion and repose : "All praise to thee, my God, this night,
Strana 266 - At fourteen, he had a stock of erudition that might have puzzled a doctor, and a degree of ignorance of which a schoolboy would have been ashamed. He had no ambition : his father was dead ; and he would have apprenticed himself to a shoemaker who lived near the school, had not the head-master prevented him.

Where once my careless childhood stray'd, Ah, happy hills! ah, pleasing shade
Strana 187 - Her cap far whiter than the driven snow, Emblem right meet of decency does yield: Her apron, dyed in grain, as blue, I trow, As is the harebell that adorns the field ; And, in her hand, for sceptre, she does wield Tway birchen sprays; with anxious fear entwined, With dark distrust, and
