第 340 頁 - With uncouth rhymes and shapeless sculpture decked, Implores the passing tribute of a sigh. Their name, their years, spelt by th' unlettered muse, The place of fame and elegy supply: And many a holy text around she strews, That teach the rustic moralist to die.
第 24 頁 - I'm weary of conjectures — This must end them. (Laying his hand upon his sword. Thus am I doubly armed : my death and life, My bane and antidote, are both before me : This in a moment brings me to an end, But this informs me I shall never die.
第 339 頁 - Await alike the inevitable hour. The paths of glory lead but to the grave. Nor you, ye proud, impute to these the fault, If memory o'er their tomb no trophies raise, Where through the long-drawn aisle and fretted vault The pealing anthem swells the note of praise.
