Page 48 - Like Cato, give his little Senate laws, And sit attentive to his own applause; While wits and Templars ev'ry sentence raise, And wonder with a foolish face of praise: Who but must laugh, if such a man there be? Who would not weep, if Atticus were he? What though my name stood rubric on the walls, Or plastered posts, with claps, in capitals? Or smoking forth, a hundred hawkers...
Page 48 - Peace to all such ! but were there one whose fires True genius kindles, and fair fame inspires; Blest with each talent and each art to please, And born to write, converse, and live with ease : Should such a man, too fond to rule alone, Bear, like the Turk, no brother near the throne...
Page 82 - And yet, steeped in sentiment as she lies, spreading her gardens to the moonlight, and whispering from her towers the last enchantments of the Middle Age, who will deny that Oxford, by her ineffable charm, keeps ever calling us nearer to the true goal of all of us, to the ideal, to perfection, — to beauty, in a word, which is only truth seen from book front their Renting 3£ibrnrii for Now Ready.
Page 141 - ... nous allions, qui nous étions; Français, imaginez un peu! chez nos plus mortels ennemis , seuls, égarés , si loin de tout secours humain! et puis pour ne rien omettre de ce qui pouvait nous perdre , il fit le riche , promit à ces gens pour la dépense, et pour nos guides le lendemain, ce qu'ils voulurent.
Page 38 - ODE TO THE NORTH-EAST WIND WELCOME, wild North-easter ! Shame it is to see Odes to every zephyr ; Ne'er a verse to thee. Welcome, black North-easter !

Tired of listless dreaming, Through the lazy day : Jovial wind of winter Turns us out to play ! Sweep the golden reed-beds ; Crisp the lazy dyke ; Hunger into madness Every plunging...
Page 141 - Dans ces montagnes les chemins sont des précipices, nos chevaux marchaient avec beaucoup de peine; mon camarade allant devant, un sentier qui lui parut plus praticable et plus court nous égara. Ce fut ma faute; devais-je me fier à une tête de vingt ans? Nous cherchâmes, tant qu'il fit jour, notre chemin à travers ces bois; mais plus nous cherchions, plus nous nous perdions, et il était nuit noire quand nous arrivâmes près d'une maison fort noire.
Page 449 - If two triangles have one angle of the one equal to one angle of the other and the sides about these equal angles proportional, the triangles are similar.
Page 308 - O silent father of our Kings to be Mourn'd in this golden hour of jubilee, For this, for all, we weep our thanks to thee!

Page 141 - Nous y entrâmes, 15 non sans soupçon, mais comment faire? Là nous trouvons toute une famille de charbonniers à table, où du premier mot on nous invita. Mon jeune homme ne se fit pas prier : nous voilà mangeant et buvant, lui du moins ; car pour moi, j'examinais le lieu et la mine de nos hôtes. Nos hôtes 20 avaient bien mine de charbonniers, mais la maison, vous l'eussiez prise pour un arsenal.
