Pàgina 191 - Careless their merits or their faults to scan, His pity gave ere charity began. Thus to relieve the wretched was his pride, And e'en his failings lean'd to virtue's side; But in his duty prompt, at every call, He watch'd and wept, he pray'd and felt, for all...
Pàgina xiii - Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise (That last infirmity of noble mind) To scorn delights and live laborious days; But the fair guerdon when we hope to find, And think to burst out into sudden blaze, Comes the blind Fury with the abhorred shears, And slits the thin-spun life. 'But not the praise...
Pàgina 81 - She was a pretty little girl ; " and every body said, she was a very good little " girl. In short, one of her cousins, though " only a school-boy, took a particular fancy to " her. He soon after made his father and " mother his confidants ; and they were far '' from discouraging him. They probably thought " (as I do now,) that early attachments...
Pàgina 224 - Maker's mandate true, Calls Spring's impartial heralds to the view, The snow-drop pale, the crocus spik'd with gold ; And still (thank Heaven) if I not falsely deem, My lyre, yet vocal, freely can afford Strains not discordant to each...
Pàgina 82 - ... have now (1791) lived together about thirty years, without having been almost as many days separated. No marriage could be more happy. All their schemes succeeded ; and they are now, in their old age, in affluent circumstances, and have six fine grandchildren to bear their name after them. They have often said to each other they never knew what could be called an affliction ; and only have to hope that God will be pleased to work with them by felicity, as He often does with others by calamity.
Pàgina 145 - Whatever you do, I do not suspect you of pillaging or oppressing ; and shall rejoice to see you return with a body unbroken, and a mind uncorrupted. " You and I had hardly any common friends, and therefore I have few anecdotes to relate to you. Mr. Levet, who brought us into acquaintance, died suddenly at my house last year, in his seventy-eighth year, or about that age. Mrs. Williams, the blind lady, is slill with me, but much broken by a very wearisome and obstinate disease.
Pàgina 143 - But they are allowed to proclaim a cessation of arms, and revoke their proclamation as soon as in consequence of it our militia have been allowed to go home: they may suspend the operation of acts prohibiting trade, and take off that suspension when our merchants in consequence of it have been induced to send their ships to sea, in short, they may do...
Pàgina 202 - ... carnage. This wish of mine, ineffective as it may be, induces me to mention to you, that between nations long exasperated against each other in war, some act of generosity and kindness towards prisoners on one side has softened resentment and abated animosity on the other, so as to bring on an accommodation.
Pàgina xii - Full many a gem of purest ray serene The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear : Full many a flower is born to blush unseen, And waste its sweetness on the desert air. Some village- Hampden, that, with dauntless breast, The little tyrant of his fields withstood, Some mute inglorious Milton here may rest, Some Cromwell guiltless of his country's blood. Th...
Pàgina ix - A universe of death ; which God by curse Created evil, for evil only good, Where all life dies, death lives, and nature breeds, Perverse, all monstrous, all prodigious things, Abominable, inutterable, and worse Than fables yet have feign'd, or fear conceiv'd, Gorgons, and Hydras, and Chimeras dire.
