Sayfa 10 - Her clothes spread wide ; And mermaid-like, awhile they bore her up : "Which time, she chanted snatches of old tunes ; As one incapable § of her own distress, Or like a creature native and indued Unto that element : but long it could not be, Till that her garments, heavy with their drink, Pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious lay To muddy death.
Sayfa 10 - There with fantastic garlands did she come ¡69 Of crow-flowers, nettles, daisies, and long purples That liberal shepherds give a grosser name, But our cold maids do dead men's fingers call them; There, on the pendent boughs her coronet weeds Clambering to hang, an envious sliver broke; When down her weedy trophies and herself Fell in the weeping brook.

Sayfa 280 - With transport once ; the fond attentive gaze Of young astonishment ; the sober zeal Of age, commenting on prodigious things, For such the bounteous Providence of Heaven, In every breast implanting this desire Of objects new, and strange, to urge us on With unremitted labour to pursue Those sacred stores that wait the ripening soul, In Truth's exhaustless bosom.
Sayfa 81 - ... one is conversing with me I conceive myself to see the expression of countenance as the words are pronounced, almost as if I actually saw it, and in ordinary cases receive a similar kind of satisfaction. This may be accounted for from a combination of causes — as the tone of voice, the manner of speaking, and other circumstances, which excite in my mind an ideal picture of the features, personal qualities, manners, nay, even the character of the person conversing with me, particularly when...
Sayfa 305 - ... ROGUE. Perhaps for ingenuity, the following trick, played by a Russian in Moscow, could not be surpassed in London or Paris. A respectable looking man fell senseless in the street from a fit, when a person in the crowd started forward, exclaiming, "Oh! my master, my poor master!" He now very cooly transferred the contents of the unfortunate gentleman's pockets into his own, not forgetting his watch; and then with all...
Sayfa 74 - The grinders are five times as large, are square, and the grinding surface studded with four or five rows of blunt points; whereas those of the elephant are broad and thin, and their grinding surface flat.
