Page 167 - Sweet is the breath of vernal shower, The bee's collected treasures sweet, Sweet music's melting fall, but sweeter yet The still small voice of gratitude.
Page 65 - Statesman, yet friend to Truth! of soul sincere, In action faithful, and in honour clear; Who broke no promise, served no private end, Who gained no title, and who lost no friend ; Ennobled by himself, by all approved, And praised, unenvied, by the Muse he loved.
Page 80 - Imperious Caesar, dead and turn'd to clay, Might stop a hole to keep the wind away : O, that that earth, which kept the world in awe, Should patch a wall to expel the winter's flaw ! But soft ! but soft ! aside : here comes the king.
Page 111 - Indications) of Memorials, Monuments, Paintings and Engravings of Persons of the Howard Family, and of their Wives and Children, and of those who have married Ladies of the name, and of the Representatives of some of its branches now extinct.
Page 178 - Lear,' ' Othello ;' I feel we may take our stand within that unassailable quadrilateral, and give our challenge to all the world. I feel indeed tempted to upbraid myself when I think of all the outlying realms of strength and comeliness which I thus seem to leave outside ; the stately forms of Roman heroes — the chivalry marshalled around our...

I rejoice in the temple which has been reared to Toleration ; and I am proud that I worked as a bricklayer's labourer at it — without pay, and with the enmity and abuse of those who were unfavourable to its construction.
Page 177 - We are about, either by this sundown or by to-morrow's dawn, to establish a new material link between the Old World and the New. Moral links there have been — links of race, links of commerce, links of friendship, links of literature, links of glory ; but this, our new link, instead of superseding and supplanting the old ones, is to give a life and an intensity which they never had before.
Page 30 - Caledonia ! stern and wild, meet nurse for a poetic child, • land of brown heath and shaggy wood, land of the mountain and the flood, land of my sires!
Page 177 - Cork yesterday weighed their anchors, did so on that very day 365 years ago — it would have been called in Hebrew writ a year of years — and set sail upon his glorious enterprise of discovery. They, I say, will not dim or efface his glory, but they are now giving the last finish and consummation to his work. Hitherto the inhabitants of the two worlds have associated perhaps in the chilling atmosphere of distance with each other — a sort of bowing distance; but now we can be hand to hand, grasp...
Page 231 - It was, at the close of the session, a subject of high eulogium in the Speaker's speech to the Regent, and in the Regent's speech to the two Houses. Now, then, I, William Cobbett, assert that to carry this Bill into effect is impossible ; and I say that, if this Bill be carried into full effect, I will give Castlereagh leave to lay me on a gridiron, and broil me alive, while Sidmouth may stir the coals, and Canning stand by and laugh at my groans.
