第 393 頁 - There lives more faith in honest doubt, Believe me, than in half the creeds.
第 321 頁 - There was a time when meadow, grove, and stream, The earth, and every common sight, To me did seem Apparelled in celestial light, The glory and the freshness of a dream. It is not now as it hath been of yore; — Turn wheresoe'er I may, By night or day, The things which I have seen I now can see no more.

Thoas has conceived a passion for her. Thou sharedst my sorrow when a hostile sword Tore from my side my last, my dearest son ; Long as fierce vengeance occupied my heart, I did not feel my dwellings...
第 66 頁 - As a tragedy, criticism makes sad work with it ; but when all is said, the reader thinks of Egmont and Clarchen, and flings criticism to the dogs. These are the figures which remain in the memory : bright, genial, glorious creations, comparable to any to be found in the long galleries of Art.
第 203 頁 - ... Camel in its habits ; and returned with a thick volume of facts, arranged without order, expounded without philosophy, but serving as valuable materials for all who came after him.
