Sayfa 265 - Set me as a seal upon thine heart, As a seal upon thine arm : For love is strong as death; Jealousy is cruel as the grave: The coals thereof are coals of fire, Which hath a most vehement flame. Many waters cannot quench love, Neither can the floods drown it: If a man would give all the substance of his house for love, It would utterly be contemned.
Sayfa 122 - IBAM forte via Sacra, sicut meus est mos, Nescio quid meditans nugarum, totus in illis : Accurrit quidam notus mihi nomine tantum, Arreptaque manu, "Quid agis, dulcissime rerum?" " Suaviter ut nunc est," inquam, " et cupio omnia quae vis." Cum assectaretur: "Num quid vis?" occupo. At ille, "Noris nos," inquit;
Sayfa 77 - ... he raised his head from the arms, the stone table burst right in twain, for his beard had grown through it. ' Give me thy hand !' said he to the slave. The slave durst not give him the hand, but put forth an iron bar, which Holger indented with his fingers. At last he let go his hold, muttering, ' It is well ! I am glad that there are yet men in Denmark.
Sayfa 76 - He went down, and came to a large iron door, which opened of itself, when he knocked. He found himself in a deep vault. In the centre of the ceiling hung a lamp, which was nearly burnt out; and, below, stood a huge stone table, round which some steel-clad warriors sat, resting their heads on their arms, which they had laid crossways. He who sat at the head of the table then rose up. It was Holger the Dane. But when he raised his head from...
Sayfa 226 - Aut age diversos et disjice corpora ponto. Sunt mihi bis septem praestanti corpore Nymphae, Quarum quae forma pulcherrima Deüopea, Connubio jungam stabili propriamque dicabo, Omnes ut tecum meritis pro talibus annos 75 Exigat, et pulchra faciat te prole parentem.
Sayfa 302 - Silently, as if without a breath of wind, the cutter crept up the Gulf, the beauties of which increased the farther we advanced; the bays — the vessels glancing among the rocks with their white sails in the sun — the cultivated patches of land — and the neat wooden farm-houses amid the desolation of the mountains, were novel and interesting objects. The great variety of the underwood, and the diversified colours of the foliage, were beautifully blended with the darker tints of the fir which...
Sayfa 300 - Cattegat ; he seems to have resolved that the opportunity offered by a fishing excursion should not be lost, and accordingly we have two pleasant little volumes relating almost all that the par'y said and did. The following extract will be read with interest. The yacht is visiting Christiania. " The smooth and glassy surface of the tideless Fiord, hemmed in by lofty mountains, stands forth the grand characteristic of Norway. The weatherbeaten rocks, rising abruptly from the water, have beauty and...
Sayfa 303 - ... rocks tower proportionally into the air, their steep, bold sides are plunged perpendicularly into the sea, • and seem to descend till the eye loses them in its green depth. Here and there the islands are inhabited by peasants; and flocks of sheep and goats ceased, as the yacht passed them, to browse on the low herbage which springs beneath the rocky coppice; and before the...
Sayfa 302 - ... blended with the darker tints of the fir which grew along the sides, and on the tops, of the high hills ; and how well does their sombre gloom mate with the stern magnificence of the rocks ! On the islands, the birch, the hazel, the alder, and the ash, cast their shadows over the water, and are there reflected in their minutest lineaments; nor are their trunks and branches more sharply defined in the air above, than they are imaged in the watery mirror below, the transparency of the water in...
Sayfa 302 - ... desire created as it were by the visible perception of perfect natural beauty, was ever present to embody itself with the sights of grandeur that soared and sank above and below me. " Silently, as if without a breath of wind, the cutter crept up the gulf, the beauties of which increased the farther we advanced ; the bays — the vessels glancing among the rocks, with their white sails in the sun— the cultivated patches of land — and the neat wooden farm-houses amid the desolation of the mountains,...
