第 18 頁 - DEAR Sir Walter Scott and myself were exact, but harmonious, opposites in this; — that every old ruin, hill, river, or tree called up in his mind a host of historical or biographical associations, — just as a bright pan of brass, when beaten, is said to attract the swarming bees; — whereas, for myself, notwithstanding Dr. Johnson, I believe I should walk over the plain of Marathon without taking more interest in it than in any other plain of similar features.
第 38 頁 - What I dared not expect from constitutions of Government and whole Nations, I hoped from Religion...
