Strona 116 - I could a tale unfold whose lightest word Would harrow up thy soul, freeze thy young blood, Make thy two eyes, like stars, start from their spheres, Thy knotted and combined locks to part And each particular hair to stand on end, Like quills upon the fretful porcupine : But this eternal blazon must not be To ears of flesh and blood.
Strona 93 - This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands, This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England, This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings, Fear'd by their breed and famous by their birth...
Strona 93 - This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea...

" But are we to consider as nothing the difference to the rural population, between a rental of £ 10,000 a-year being spent on the spot which produces it, and being sent to England or to Italy ? Can we shut our eyes to the moral deprivations which society on that spot endures by the desertion of its natural patron and protector — or be insensible even to the monetary difference, to that spot, at least, between this £10,000 being sent at once away from...
Strona 243 - The world is not thy friend, nor the world's law : The world affords no law to make thee rich ; be not poor, but break it, and take this.
Strona 19 - AWAKE, my St. John ! leave all meaner things To low ambition and the pride of kings. Let us (since life can little more supply Than just to look about us and to die) Expatiate free o'er all this scene of man ; A mighty maze ! but not without a plan ; A wild where weeds and flowers promiscuous shoot, Or garden tempting with forbidden fruit.
Strona 245 - Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness : he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. 5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth : he will guide his affairs with discretion.
Strona 94 - Convey'd th' informer out of sight, And went to entertain the Knight ; With whom encount'ring, after longees Of humble and submissive congees, 160 And all due ceremonies paid, He strok'd his beard, and thus he said : Madam, I do, as is my duty, Honour the shadow of your...
