الصفحة 176 - I behold like a Spanish great galleon, and an English man-of-war; Master Coleridge, like the former, was built far higher in learning, solid, but slow in his performances. CVL, with the English man-of-war, lesser in bulk, but lighter in sailing, could turn with all tides, tack about, and take advantage of all winds, by the quickness of his wit and invention.
الصفحة 182 - I WAS born, and passed the first seven years of my life, in the Temple. Its church, its halls, its gardens, its fountain, its river, I had almost said — for in those young years, what was this king of rivers to me but a stream that watered our pleasant places ? — these are of my oldest recollections.
الصفحة 156 - I dined (said he) very well for eight-pence, with very good company, at the Pine Apple in Newstreet, just by. Several of them had travelled. They expected to meet every day ; but did not know one another's names.

I sent him a guinea, and promised to come to him directly.

I perceived that he had already changed my guinea, and had...
الصفحة 111 - That respectable body, of which I have the honour of being a member, affords every evening a sight truly English. Twenty or thirty, perhaps, of the first men in the kingdom in point of fashion and fortune, supping at little tables covered with a napkin, in the middle of a coffeeroom, upon a bit of cold meat, or a sandwich, and drinking a glass of punch.
الصفحة 303 - Down on your knees, you rogue, for here ' Vanity Fair ' was penned ! And I will go down with you, for I have a high opinion of that little production myself.
الصفحة 218 - An old black-laced hood represents the first, the fur of a horseman's coat, which replaces the third, serves for the second ; a dimity petticoat is deputy, and officiates for the fourth, and slippers act the part of the last.
