الصفحة 35 - I thought so ; but know that speaking well of all mankind is the worst kind of detraction ; for it takes away the reputation of the few good men in the world by making all alike.
الصفحة 4 - A mind well skilled to find or forge a fault, A turn for punning, call it Attic salt ; To JEFFREY go, be silent and discreet, His pay is just ten sterling pounds per sheet : Fear not to lie...
الصفحة 21 - As shallow streams run dimpling all the way. Whether in florid impotence he speaks, And as the prompter breathes, the puppet squeaks; Or at the ear of Eve, familiar toad, Half froth, half venom, spits himself abroad, In puns, or politics, or tales, or lies, Or spite, or smut, or rhymes, or blasphemies...
الصفحة 24 - Bertram, et id omne genus, viz., that of ministering to the depraved appetite for excitement, and, though in a far less degree, creating sympathy for the vicious and infamous, solely because the fiend is daring. Not twenty lines of Scott's poetry will ever reach- posterity ; it has relation to nothing.
الصفحة 231 - Sopra gli altari e su le chiese, a gara Le giuste fiamme lor tutte saettano.

الصفحة 230 - Più talvolta non v' è che almen sia casta; Che per i Tempj la pittura insana La Religion col puttanesmo impasta. O quanti Arrelli in quest' età profana Di Numi in cambio nelle sacre tele Dipingono il bardassa, e la puttana! Onde tradito poi lo stuol fedele Con scellerata, e folle idolatria Porge i voti all'Inferno, e le querele. Che d'un Angelo in vece e di Maria, D'Ati il volto s'adora , e di Medusa , L'effigie d'un Radilo , o d' un
الصفحة 223 - ... Every lady would regard it as a personal insult to be asked to witness such an exhibition. In America, again, where respect for the female sex is carried to a much greater extent than in Great Britain, or perhaps in any other country, the female dancer — even were she Taglioni...
الصفحة 101 - Their elevations enchant you, not by the length and altitude, nor by the materials and sculpture, but-the consummate felicity of their proportions, by the harmonious distribution of solid and void, by that happy something between flat and prominent, which charms both in front and profile; by that maestria which calls in columns, not to encumber but to support, and reproduces ancient beauty in combinations unknown to the ancients themselves.
الصفحة 223 - It certainly displays a science and a facility of evolution, of which no one who has not seen it can form any conception ; but when the dancers are females, it is not the best means which could be employed to inspire notions of delicacy in the minds of those ladies who are among the spectators. How they can, not only witness it without a blush mantling their cheeks, but talk of it in terms of unqualified admiration to their acquaintances of the other sex, must appear passing strange to those who...
