第 230 頁 - I may not hope from outward forms to win The passion and the life, whose fountains are within.
第 230 頁 - For not to think of what I needs must feel, But to be still and patient, all I can; And haply by abstruse research to steal From my own nature all the natural man — This was my sole resource, my only plan : Till that which suits a part infects the whole, And now is almost grown the habit of my soul.
第 230 頁 - O Lady! we receive but what we give And in our life alone does Nature live: Ours is her wedding garment, ours her shroud! And would we aught behold of higher worth, Than that inanimate cold world allowed To the poor loveless ever-anxious crowd, Ah! from the soul itself must issue forth A light, a glory, a fair luminous cloud Enveloping the Earth...
第 236 頁 - But how can He expect that others should Build for him, sow for him, and at his call Love him, who for himself will take no heed at all...

第 301 頁 - But who, if he be called upon to face Some awful moment to which Heaven has joined Great issues good or bad for human kind, Is happy as a lover, and attired With sudden brightness, like a man inspired...
第 281 頁 - Wordsworth's intellectual passions were fervent and strong : but they rested upon a basis of preternatural animal sensibility diffused through all the animal passions (or appetites) ; and something of that will be found to hold of all poets who have been great by original force and power, not (as Virgil) by means of fine management and exquisite artifice of composition applied to their conceptions.
第 276 頁 - He was, upon the whole, not a well-made man. His legs were pointedly condemned by all female connoisseurs in legs ; not that they were bad in any way which would force itself upon your notice — there was no absolute deformity about them ; and undoubtedly they had been serviceable legs beyond the average standard of human requisition ; for I calculate, upon good data, that with these identical legs Wordsworth must have traversed a distance of 175,000 to...
