第 62 頁 - And ever, against eating cares, Lap me in soft Lydian airs, Married to immortal verse, Such as the meeting soul may pierce In notes, with many a winding bout Of link-ed sweetness long drawn out, With wanton heed, and giddy cunning, The melting voice through mazes running ; Untwisting all the chains that tie The hidden soul of Harmony : That Orpheus...
第 194 頁 - I was dressed, and found that his landlady had arrested him for his rent, at which he was in a violent passion. I perceived that he had already changed my guinea, and had got a bottle of madeira and a glass before him. I put the cork into the bottle, desired he would be calm, and began to talk to him of the means by which he might be extricated. He then told me that he had a novel ready for the press, which he produced to me.

第 43 頁 - The seasons' difference : as the icy fang And churlish chiding of the winter's wind, Which when it bites and blows upon my body, Even till I shrink with cold, I smile and say, This is no flattery : these are counsellors That feelingly persuade me what I am.
第 12 頁 - Which was a rare thing then, When this old cap was new. Then bribery was unborn, No simony men did use ; Christians did usury scorn, Devised among the Jews. The lawyers to be fee'd At that time hardly knew : For man with man agreed, When this old cap was new.
第 12 頁 - And are not help'd by any ; For charity waxeth cold, And love is found in few ; This was not in time of old, When this old cap was new.
第 13 頁 - DOUBTLESS the pleasure is as great Of being cheated, as to cheat ; As lookers-on feel most delight That least perceive a juggler's sleight, And still, the less they understand, The more they' admire his sleight of hand...
第 11 頁 - When gospel-trumpeter, surrounded With long-ear'd rout, to battle sounded ; And pulpit, drum ecclesiastic, Was beat with fist instead of a stick ; Then did Sir Knight abandon dwelling, And out he rode a colonelling. A wight he was, whose very sight would Entitle him Mirror of Knighthood, That never bow'd his stubborn knee To anything but chivalry, Nor put up blow, but that which laid Right Worshipful on shoulder-blade ; Chief of domestic knights and errant, Either for chartel...
