Give me a look, give me a face; That makes simplicity a grace ; Robes loosely flowing, hair as free : Such sweet neglect more taketh me, Than all the adulteries of art ; They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.
第 130 頁 - Tis good to be merry and wise, 'Tis good to be honest and true ; 'Tis good to be off with the old love, Before you be on with the new.
第 313 頁 - Refined himself to soul, to curb the sense, And made almost a sin of abstinence : Yet had his aspect nothing of severe, But such a face as promised him sincere. Nothing reserved or sullen was to see ; But sweet regards, and pleasing sanctity : Mild was his accent, and his action free.
第 314 頁 - Wide was his parish; not contracted close In streets, but here and there a straggling house; Yet still he was at hand, without request, To serve the sick; to succour the distress'd: Tempting, on foot, alone, without affright, The dangers of a dark tempestuous night.

For, letting down the golden chain from high, He drew his audience upward to the sky ; And oft, with holy hymns, he charm'd their ears, (A music more melodious than the spheres,) For David left him, when he went to rest, His lyre ; and after him he sung the best.
第 3 頁 - Mrs. Stanhope did not find Belinda such a docile pupil as her other nieces, for she had been educated chiefly in the country; she had early been inspired with a taste for domestic pleasures ; she was fond of reading, and disposed to conduct herself with prudence and integrity.
第 301 頁 - I hear a voice, you cannot hear, Which says, I must not stay; I see a hand, you cannot see, Which beckons me away.
第 225 頁 - ... she, bursting into a horse laugh. Without sharing in any degree that confusion which Belinda felt for her, she strode out of the room, saying, " Miss Portman, you understand these things better than I do ; come and set me to rights." When she was in Belinda's room, she threw herself into an arm-chair, and laughed immoderately. " How I have trimmed Percival this morning !" said she. " I am glad you think so," said Belinda ; "for I really was afraid he had been too severe upon you.
第 313 頁 - But never sued, or cursed with bell and book: With patience bearing wrong, but offering none, Since every man is free to lose his own. The country churls, according to their kind (Who grudge their dues, and love to be behind), The less he sought his offerings, pinch'd the more; And praised a priest contented to be poor.
