第 33 頁 - Here — here's his place, where meteors shoot, clouds form, Lightnings are loosened, Stars come and go! let joy break with the storm — Peace let the dew send! Lofty designs must close in like effects: Loftily lying, Leave him — still loftier than the world suspects, Living and dying.
第 49 頁 - Cockneys dashing by like arrows in thin long canoes of boats ; beyond, the green beautiful knolls of Surrey with their villages — on the whole, a most artificial, green-painted, yet lively, fresh, almost opera-looking business, such as you can fancy.
第 24 頁 - The thought of this eternal deprivation — even of this, though this is such a nothing in comparison — was sad and painful to me. And then a second feeling rose on me, ' What if Omnipotence, which has developed in me these pieties, these reverences and infinite affections, should actually have said, Yes, poor mortals.
第 48 頁 - I know not what, all shelved and fit to hold crockery for the whole street. Such is the ground area, which of course continues to the top, and furnishes every bedroom with a dressing-room or second bedroom ; on the whole a most massive, roomy, sufficient old house with places, for example, to hang, say, three dozen hats or cloaks on, and as many crevices and queer old presses and shelved closets (all light and new painted in their way) as would gratify the most covetous Goody — rent, thirty-five...

第 33 頁 - Here's the top-peak; the multitude below Live, for they can, there: This man decided not to Live but Know Bury this man there?
第 21 頁 - I knew Carlyle, and I aver to you that his heart was as large and generous as his brain was powerful ; that he was essentially a most lovable man, and that there were depths of tenderness, kindliness, benevolence, and most delicate courtesy in him, with all his seeming ruggedness and sternness, such as I have found throughout my life rarely in any human being.
第 45 頁 - September, 1828. ******* You inquire with such affection touching our present abode and employments, that I must say some words on that subject, while I have still space. Dumfries is a pretty town, of some 15,000 inhabitants ; the Commercial and Judicial Metropolis of a considerable district on the Scottish border. Our dwelling place is not in it, but fifteen miles (two hours...
