Sayfa 29 - But peace to his spirit, wherever it flies, To act as an angel and mix with the skies : Those poets, who owe their best fame to his skill, Shall still be his flatterers, go where he will ; Old Shakspeare receive him with praise and with love, And Beaumonts and Bens be his Kellys above.
Sayfa 29 - Till his relish, grown callous almost to disease, Who pepper'd the highest was surest to please. But let us be candid, and speak out our mind, If dunces applauded, he paid them in kind. Ye Kenricks, ye Kellys...
Sayfa 171 - Farewell ! a long farewell, to all my greatness ! This is the state of man : to-day he puts forth The tender leaves of hope, to-morrow blossoms, And bears his blushing honours thick upon him . The third day comes a frost, a killing frost, And, — when he thinks, good easy man, full surely His greatness is a-ripening, — nips his root, And then he falls, as I do.
Sayfa 28 - As an actor, confessed without rival to shine, As a wit, if not first, in the very first line; Yet with talents like these and an excellent heart, The man had his failings, a dupe to his art. Like an ill-judging beauty his colours he spread, And beplastered with rouge his own natural red. On the stage he was natural, simple, affecting: 'Twas only that, when he was off, he was acting.
Sayfa 29 - Twas only that when he was off he was acting. With no reason on earth to go out of his way, He turn'd and he varied full ten times a day: Though secure of our hearts, yet confoundedly sick If they were not his own by finessing and trick: He cast off his friends as a huntsman his pack, For he knew, when he pleased, he could whistle them back. Of praise a mere glutton, he swallow'd what came, And the puff of a dunce he mistook it for fame; Till his relish, grown callous almost to disease, Who pepper'd...
Sayfa 336 - Oppressed with numbers in th' unequal field, His men discouraged and himself expelled, Let him for succour sue from place to place, Torn from his subjects and his sons' embrace, First let him see his friends in battle slain, And their untimely fate lament in vain ; And when at length the cruel war shall cease, On hard conditions may he buy his peace. Nor let him then enjoy supreme command, But fall untimely by some hostile hand, And...
Sayfa 335 - Si tangere portus infandum caput ac terris adnare necesse est, et sic fata lovis poscunt, hie terminus haeret : at bello audacis populi vexatus et armis, 615 finibus extorris, complexu avulsus luli, auxilium imploret, videatque indigna suorum funera ; nee, cum se sub leges pacis iniquae tradiderit, regno aut optata luce fruatur, sed cadat ante diem, mediaque inhumatus arena.
Sayfa 380 - Like sad Prometheus fastened to the Rock, In vain he looks for Pity to the Clock ; In vain the Powers of strengthening Porter tries, And nods to Bellamy for fresh Supplies.
Sayfa 170 - ... afterwards, so it went to my heart to consider that there was not one in all that brilliant circle, that was not afraid to go home and think...
Sayfa 337 - To fight with caution, not to tempt the sword : 1 warn'd thee, but in vain ; for well I knew What perils youthful ardour would pursue ; That boiling blood would carry thee too far. Young as thou wert in dangers, raw to war ! O curst essay of arms, disastrous doom, Prelude of bloody fields and fights to come.
