الصفحة 66 - Candour, which spares its foes, nor e'er descends With bigot zeal to combat for its friends ; Candour, which loves in see-saw strain to tell Of acting foolishly, but meaning well; Too nice to praise by wholesale or to blame, Convinced that all men's motives are the same ; And finds, with keen discriminating sight, Black's not so black, nor white so very white.
الصفحة 604 - Ah, noble prince, how oft have I beheld Thee mounted on thy fierce and trampling steed, Shining in armour bright before the tilt, And with thy mistress...
الصفحة 682 - Being your slave , what should I do but tend Upon the hours and times of your desire? I have no precious time at all to spend, Nor services to do , till you require.
الصفحة 615 - But hold some two days' conference with the dead ! From them I should learn somewhat I am sure I never shall know here. I'll tell thee a miracle ; I am not mad yet, to my cause of sorrow.
الصفحة 615 - I'll tell thee a miracle ; I am not mad yet, to my cause of sorrow : Th' heaven o'er my head seems made of molten brass, The earth of flaming sulphur, yet I am not mad.

الصفحة 71 - I'm like a young lady just bringing to bed. If you ask why the llth of June I remember, Much better than April, or May, or November, On that day, my lords, with truth I assure ye, My sainted progenitor set up his brewery ; On that day, in the morn, he began brewing beer; On that day, too...
الصفحة 67 - So thine own oak, by some fair streamlet's side, Waves its broad arms, and spreads its leafy pride, Towers from the earth, and rearing to the skies Its conscious strength, the tempest's wrath defies. Its ample branches shield the fowls of air, To its cool shade the panting herds repair. — The treacherous current works its noiseless way, — The fibres loosen, and the roots decay ; Prostrate the beauteous ruin lies ; and all That shared its shelter, perish in its fall.
الصفحة 66 - PITT'S words, you'll own, were rather strong. Both must be blamed, both pardon'd ; 'twas just so With Fox and PITT full forty years ago ! So WALPOLE, PULTENEY ; — factions in all times Have had their follies, ministers their crimes.
