الصفحة 7 - OH be thou blest with all that Heaven can send, Long health, long youth, long pleasure, and a friend : Not with those toys the female world admire, Riches that vex, and vanities that tire. With added years, if life bring nothing new, But like a sieve let every blessing through, Some...
الصفحة 5 - Error is ;he stuff of which the web of life is woven and he who lives longest and wisest is only able to weave out the more of it. I began with the design of converting you to my opinion that the arrangement of long and short syllables into regular feet constituted the harmony _f English verse.
الصفحة 71 - Parva metu primo ; mox sese attollit in auras, Ingrediturque solo, et caput inter nubila condit...
الصفحة 9 - ... think it a great step gained, and giving up my exceptions, shall willingly rally to him ; and as he has promised us another paper on the question whether we shall read by quantity or by accent, I can confidently trust it to the correctness of his learning and judgment.

What becomes of the sublime measure of Homer, the full sounding rhythm of Demos.thenes, if, abandoning quantity, you chop it up by accent ? What ear can hesitate in its choice between the two following rythms ? " Til', faxa/icidti/ievo; Trpofetj?i and, the latter noted according to prosody, the...
الصفحة 9 - the latter noted according to prosody, the' former by accent, and dislocating our teeth in its utterance; every syllable of it, except the first and last, being pronounced against quantity. And what becomes of the art of prosody? Is that perfect coincidence of its rules with the structure of their verse, merely accidental? or was it of design, and yet for no use?
