Page 4 - OH ! think not my spirits are always as light, And as free from a pang, as they seem to you now : Nor expect that the heart-beaming smile of to-night Will return with to-morrow to brighten my brow.
Page 3 - No opportunity he e'er let pass Of writing the directions on his labels In dapper couplets, like Gay's fables, Or, rather, like the lines In Hudibras. Apothecary's verse ! — and where 's the treason...
Page 21 - We thought her sleeping when she died ; And dying, when she slept." — Hood. " Somne levis, quanquara certissima mortis imago Consortem cupio te tamen esse tori ; Alma quies, optata, veni, nam sic sine vita Vivere quam suave est ; sic sine morte roori.
Page 18 - Quoi ! vous parlez de cheveux blancs ! Laissons, laissons courir le temps. Que vous importe son ravage ? Les amours sont toujours enfants, Et les grâces sont de tout âge. Pour moi , Thémire , je le sens , Je suis toujours dans mon printemps Quand je vous offre mon hommage. Si je n'avais que dix-huit ans , Je pourrais aimer plus long-temps , .

May we never meet worse in our practice of law, Than the flaw a Demurrer can gild with a fee, And the Fee that a conscience can earn from a flaw. Yet our doors would not often be dark, on my soul ! If Equity did not to Law lend its aid : And I care not how soon I am struck off the Roll, When I for these blessings shall cease to be paid...
Page 5 - OH ! think not your pleadings are really so sly, And as free from a flaw as they seem to you now, For believe a Demurrer will certainly lie, The return of to-morrow will quickly show how. No, Law is a waste of impertinent reading, Which seldom produces but quibbles and broils : And the Lawyer who thinks he's the nicest in pleading, Is likeliest far to be caught in its toils ! But, Brother Attorney ! how happy are we ! May we never meet worse in our practice of law, Than the flaw a Demurrer...

Page 5 - ... often be dark, on my soul ! If Equity did not to Law lend its aid : And I care not how soon I am struck off the Roll, When I for these blessings shall cease to be paid ! But they who have fought for the weakest or strongest, Too often have wept o'er the credit they gave ; Even he who has revell'd in Chancery longest, Is happy if always his Costs he can save.
