第 176 頁 - I could a tale unfold whose lightest word Would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood, Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres, Thy knotted and combined locks to part And each particular hair to stand on end, Like quills upon the fretful porcupine : But this eternal blazon must not be To ears of flesh and blood.
第 260 頁 - If a man were called to fix the period in the history of the world during which the condition of the human race was most happy and prosperous, he would, without hesitation, name that which elapsed from the death of Domitian to the accession of Commodus.
第 221 頁 - Every one that flatters thee, Is no friend in misery: Words are easy, like the wind; Faithful friends are hard to find: Every man will be thy friend, Whilst thou hast wherewith to spend: But if store of crowns be scant, No man will supply thy want. If that one be prodigal, Bountiful, they will him call. And with such-like flattering, Pity but he were a king.
第 103 頁 - Thus fullers and dyers find black cloths of equal thickness with white ones, and hung out equally wet, dry in the sun much sooner than the white, being more readily heated by the sun's rays. It is the same before a fire; the heat of which sooner penetrates black stockings than white ones, and so is apt sooner to burn a man's shins.
第 176 頁 - Angels and ministers of grace defend us! Be thou a spirit of health, or goblin damn'd; Bring with thee airs from heav'n, or blasts from hell; Be thy intents wicked or charitable; Thou com'st in such a questionable shape, That I will speak to thee.
第 236 頁 - With solemn steps and slow, High potentates, and dames of royal birth, And mitred fathers in long order go : Great Edward, with the lilies on his brow From haughty Gallia torn.
第 276 頁 - Fill the wide circle of the eternal year : Stern winter smiles on that auspicious clime : The fields are florid with unfading prime ; From the bleak pole no winds inclement blow, Mould the round hail, or flake the fleecy snow ; But from the breezy deep the blest inhale The fragrant murmurs of the western gale.
第 29 頁 - The virtues which he poflefled as a man, have entitled him to greater admiration and praife, than have been beftowed upon the extenfive genius, and fortunate arts of a more capable, but Iefs amiable rival.
第 253 頁 - tis Cupid's fire : Yet all so fair but speak my moan, Sith nought doth say the heart of stone.
第 192 頁 - But the king, misled by evil counsellors, or through a seduced heart, hath left his parliament, under God the best assurance of his crown and family. The maintaining of this schism is the ground of this unhappy war on your part, and what sad effects it hath produced in the three kingdoms is visible to all men.
