Page 324 - PAGE. Madam, there is a Lady in your hall, Who begs to be admitted to your presence. LADY. Is it not one of our invited friends? PAGE. No, far unlike to them; it is a stranger. LADY.

Page 354 - De Mon. He is too old to revel with the gay. Freb. But not too old is he to honour virtue. I shall partake of it with open soul ; For, on my honest faith, of living men I know not one, for talents, honour, worth, That I should rank superior to Rezenvelt.
Page 304 - As turns e'en the offence into a favour. Man. Yes, some indeed do so : so will not he : He'd rather die than such confession make. Jer.

I'll stay by thee ; I'll cheer thee, comfort thee : Pursue with thee the study of some art, Or nobler science, that compels the mind To steady thought progressive, driving forth All floating, wild, unhappy fantasies ; Till thou, with brow unclouded, smil'st again ; Like one who, from dark visions of the night, When th...
