Sayfa 366 - That the Roman Pontiff is the true vicar of Christ, and the head of the whole Church, and the father and teacher of all Christians...
Sayfa 319 - We shall now proceed to another charge, " The Italians are vindictive and cruel, and too much in the habits of sacrificing human life to vengeance and passion." It would almost be a pity to refute this charge, the supposed certainty of which has furnished our late novelists, particularly those of the fair sex, with so much and such * Alas ! what laws, of how severe a strain, Against ourselves we thoughtlessly ordain.
Sayfa 388 - Nor do I find fault with the throne ; he who is at the same time both Pontiff and Prince has, from time and custom, perhaps a double title to such a distinction. But why should the altar be made his footstool ? the altar, the beauty of holitiess, the throne of the victim* lamb, the mercy seat of the temple of Christianity ; why should the altar be converted into the footstool of a mortal...

Sayfa 19 - Charles, that is, the qualities that give true sterling value to the man, and sanctify him in the eyes of his Creator, I mean humility, self-command, temperance, industry, prudence, and fortitude, were not inferior to his public endowments. His table was for his guests; his own diet was confined to bread and vegetables ; he allowed himself no amusement or relaxation, alleging that the variety of his duties was in itself a sufficient recreation. His dress and establishment...
Sayfa 312 - Of meads, and streams that through the valley glide, And shady groves that easy sleep invite, And, after toilsome days, a soft repose at night. * Wild beasts of nature in his woods abound ; And youth, of labour patient, plough the ground, Inur'd to hardship, and to homely fare. Nor venerable age is wanting, there, In great examples to the youthful train ; Nor are the gods ador'd with rites profane.
Sayfa 429 - X, et prolongé pendant un certain nombre d'années, présenterait un des plus intéressans et des plus utiles spectacles pour l'histoire de l'esprit humain. On peut s'en convaincre par cette esquisse légère. Un français passe...
