83. lappuse - And, as we bring our characters forward, I will ask leave, as a man and a brother, not only to introduce them, but occasionally to step down from the platform, and talk about them : if they are good and kindly, to love them and shake them by the hand ; if they are silly, to laugh at them confidentially in the reader's sleeve : if they are wicked and heartless, to abuse them in the strongest terms which politeness admits of.
371. lappuse - Jean, at length and at once to sweep the English from the height which they had maintained all day, and spite of all : unscared by the thunder of the artillery, which hurled death from the English line the dark rolling column pressed on and up the hill. It seemed almost to crest the eminence, when it began to wave and falter. Then it stopped, still facing the shot. Then at last the English troops rushed from the post from which no enemy had been able to dislodge them, and the Guard turned and...
11. lappuse - The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion; and so let all young persons take their choice.
xiv. lappuse - But for those obstinate questionings Of sense and outward things, Fallings from us, vanishings; Blank misgivings of a creature Moving about in worlds not realized, High instincts before which our mortal nature Did tremble like a guilty thing surprised...
82. lappuse - And while the moralist, who is holding forth on the cover (an accurate portrait of your humble servant) , professes to wear neither gown nor bands, but only the very same long-eared livery in which his congregation is arrayed...
89. lappuse - His politeness for the fair sex has already been hinted at by Miss Rebecca Sharp in a word, the whole baronetage, peerage, commonage of England, did not contain a more cunning, mean, selfish, foolish, disreputable old man. That blood-red hand of Sir Pitt Crawley's would be in anybody's pocket except his own...
83. lappuse - Such people there are living and flourishing in the world Faithless, Hopeless, Charityless ; let us have at them, dear friends, with might and main. Some there are, and very successful too, mere quacks and fools : and it was to combat and expose such as those, no doubt, that Laughter was made.
372. lappuse - No more firing was heard at Brussels the pursuit rolled miles away. Darkness came down on the field and city : and Amelia was praying for George, who was lying on his face, dead, with a bullet through his heart.
208. lappuse - Nabob your mistress for whom you now care no more than for Queen Elizabeth. Vows, love, promises, confidences, gratitude, how queerly they read after a while ! There ought to be a law in Vanity Fair ordering the destruction of every written document (except receipted tradesmen's bills) after a certain brief and proper interval. Those quacks and misanthropes who advertise indelible Japan ink should be made to perish along with their wicked discoveries. The best ink for Vanity Fair use would be...
6. lappuse - ... who reads this book at his Club, will pronounce to be excessively foolish, trivial, twaddling, and ultra-sentimental. Yes ; I can see Jones at this minute (rather flushed with his joint of mutton and halfpint of wine), taking out his pencil and scoring under the words "foolish, twaddling," &c., and adding to them his own remark of
