Page 246 - Between the acting of a dreadful thing And the first motion, all the interim is Like a phantasma, or a hideous dream : The genius, and the mortal instruments, Are then in council; and the state of man, Like to a little kingdom, suffers then The nature of an insurrection.
Page 242 - I could observe, much in the following manner: the head reclines something on one side ; the eyelids are more closed than usual, and the eyes roll gently with an inclination to the object; the mouth is a little opened, and the breath drawn slowly, with now and then a low sigh ; the whole body is composed, and the hands fall idly to the sides.

Page 230 - Tis pleasant, safely to behold from shore The rolling ship, and hear the tempest roar; Not that another's pain is our delight, But pains unfelt produce the pleasing sight. Tis pleasant also to behold from far The moving legions mingled in the war...
Page 241 - WHEN we have before us such objects as excite love and complacency ; the body is affected, so far as I could observe, much in the following manner : the head reclines something on one side ; the eye-lids are more closed than usual, and the eyes roll gently with an inclination to the object ; the mouth is a little opened, and the breath drawn slowly, with now and then a low sigh ; the whole body is composed, and the hands fall idly to the sides.
Page 247 - Such is the common process of marriage. A youth and maiden meeting by chance, or brought together by artifice, exchange glances, reciprocate civilities, go home and dream of one another. Having little to divert attention, or diversify thought, they find themselves uneasy when they are apart, and therefore conclude that they shall be happy together.
Page 150 - His Majesty taking the same into his royal consideration is pleased to order in Council that the said New Version of the Psalms, in English metre, be, and the same is hereby allowed and permitted to be, used in all churches, chapels, and congregations, as shall think fit to receive the same?
