Sayfa 90 - Great in the earth, as in the ethereal frame, Warms in the sun, refreshes in the breeze, Glows in the stars, and blossoms in the trees; Lives through all life, extends through all extent, Spreads undivided, operates unspent...
Sayfa 90 - Lives through all life, extends through all extent, Spreads undivided, operates unspent ; Breathes in our soul, informs our mortal part, As full, as perfect in a hair as heart ; As full, as perfect in vile man that mourns, As the rapt seraph that adores and burns. To Him no high, no low, no great, no small ; He fills, He bounds, connects and equals all.
Sayfa 27 - WHEN Learning's triumph o'er her barbarous foes First rear'd the stage, immortal Shakspeare rose; Each change of many-colour'd life he drew, Exhausted worlds, and then imagined new : Existence saw him spurn her bounded reign, And panting Time toil'd after him in vain.
Sayfa 28 - Shakespeare that from his works may be collected a system of civil and economical prudence ; yet his real power is not shown in the splendour of particular passages, but by the progress of his fable and the tenor of his dialogue ; and he that tries to recommend him by select quotations, will succeed like the pedant in Hierocles, who, when he offered his house to sale, carried a brick in his pocket as a specimen.
Sayfa 28 - Shakespeare it is commonly a species. It is from this wide extension of design that so much instruction is derived. It is this which fills the plays of Shakespeare with practical axioms and domestic wisdom. It was said of Euripides that every verse was a precept ; and it may be said of Shakespeare that from his works may be collected a system of civil and economical prudence...
Sayfa 82 - Let us not however make too much haste to despise our neighbours. Our own cathedrals are mouldering by unregarded dilapidation. It seems to be part of the despicable philosophy of the time to despise monuments of sacred magnificence...
Sayfa 67 - Sur toute chose , ne forcez jamais vos sujets à changer de religion. Nulle puissance humaine ne peut forcer le retranchement impénétrable de la liberté du cœur. La force ne peut jamais persuader les hommes ; elle ne fait que des hypocrites.
Sayfa 47 - For he who fights and runs away May live to fight another day ; But he who is in battle slain Can never rise and fight again.
Sayfa 15 - That, in the Chamber of Stars, All matters - there he mars. Clapping his rod on the board, No man dare speak a word ! For he hath all the saying, Without any renaying. He rolleth in his records. He saith, ' How say ye, my Lords ! Is not my reason good ? ' ' Good even, good ROBIN HOOD ! ' Some say ' Yes ! ' ; and some Sit still, as they were dumb...
Sayfa 88 - In short, so nearly do the rites coincide, that were the pagan high-priest to come back and reassume his functions, he would only have to learn a few new names ; to get the mass, the Paters, and the Aves by heart ; which would be much easier to him, as they are in a language he understands ; but which his modern successors often are ignorant of.
