Page 66 - Entreat me not to leave thee or to return from following after thee, for. whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge. Thy people shall be my people and thy God my God. Where thou diest will I die, and there will I be buried. The Lord do so to me and more also, if aught but death part thee and me.
Page 497 - The old philosopher is still among us in the brown coat with the metal buttons and the shirt which ought to be at wash, blinking, puffing, rolling his head, drumming with his fingers, tearing his meat like a tiger, 'and swallowing his tea in oceans. No human being who has been more than seventy years in the grave is so well known to us. And it is but just to say that our intimate acquaintance with what he would himself have called the anfractuosities of his intellect and of his temper serves only...
Page 486 - He was a vicious man, but very kind to me. If you call a dog HERVEY, I shall love him.
Page 209 - ... is then a beautiful and delightful part of our nature. There is no more interesting spectacle than to see the effects of wit upon the different characters of men ; than to observe it expanding caution, relaxing dignity, unfreezing coldness, teaching age, and care, and pain to smile, extorting reluctant gleams of pleasure from melancholy, and Charming -even the pangs of grief.
Page 486 - Whenever he was so fortunate as to have near him a hare that had been kept too long, or a meat pie made with rancid butter, he gorged himself with such violence that his veins swelled, and the moisture broke out on his forehead.
Page 361 - It stood upon twelve oxen, three looking toward the north , and three looking toward the west, and three looking toward the south, and three looking toward the east; and the sea was set upon them above, and all their hinder parts were inward.
Page 281 - And whoso shall offend one of these little ones, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Page 491 - A kind of strange oblivion has overspread me, so that I know not what has become of the last year ; and perceive that incidents and intelligence pass over me, without leaving any impression.
Page 486 - Seasons were in every library, snch an author as Fielding, whose Pasquin had had a greater run than any drama since The Beggar's Opera, was sometimes glad to obtain, by pawning his best coat, the means of dining on tripe at a cookshop underground, where he could wipe his hands, after his greasy meal, on the back of a Newfoundland dog.
Page 433 - tis his principle no more. Like following life through creatures you dissect, You lose it in the moment you detect. Yet more ; the difference is as great between The optics seeing, as the objects seen. All manners take a tincture from our own ; Or come discolour'd through our passions shown. Or Fancy's beam enlarges, multiplies, Contracts, inverts, and gives ten thousand dyes.
