Pàgina 30 - O good old man ; how well in thee appears The constant service of the antique world, When service sweat for duty, not for meed ! Thou art not for the fashion of these times, Where none will sweat, but for promotion; And having that, do choke their service up Even with the having: it is not so with thee.
Pàgina 344 - Evidemment il ya là quelque chose qui ne répond plus à l'état actuel, à la pente naturelle de la société et des esprits. Je ne sais pas bien quoi ; je le cherche.
