Page 276 - A blank, my lord. She never told her love, But let concealment, like a worm i' the bud, Feed on her damask cheek : she pined in thought; And with a green and yellow melancholy She sat like patience on a monument, Smiling at grief.
Page 163 - I am afraid my uncle will think himself justified by them on this occasion, when he asserts, that it is one of the most difficult things in the world to put a woman right, when she sets out wrong.
Page 58 - Beeves into my dressing-room. And when you are dressed, my dear, we will either return to you here, or expect you to join us there at your pleasure. And then she obligingly conducted me into her dressingroom, and excused herself for refusing to let us talk of interesting subjects. I am rejoiced, said she, to find her more sedate and composed than hitherto she has been. Her head has been greatly in danger. Her talk, for some hours, when she did talk, was so wild and incoherent, and she was so full...
Page 398 - I should not account the debts incurred debts of honour; and should hardly scruple, had I not indirectly promised payment, by asking time for it, or had they refused to give it, to call in to my aid the laws of my country; and the rather, as the appeal to those laws would be a security to me against ever again being seen in such company. Adversity is the trial of principle: without it, a man hardly knows whether he is an honest man. Two things, my cousin in his present difficulties must guard against;...
Page 146 - For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently f but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
Page 30 - And take all lives of things from you; The world depend upon your eye, And when you frown upon it, die: Only our loves shall still survive, New worlds and natures to outlive, And, like to heralds...
Page 30 - Quoth he, My faith, as adamantine, As chains of destiny, I'll maintain ; True as Apollo ever spoke, Or oracle from heart of oak ; And if you'll give my flame but vent, Now in close hugger-mugger pent, And shine upon me but benignly, With that one, and that other pigsney...
Page 252 - Great souls by instinct to each other turn, Demand alliance, and in friendship burn ; A sudden friendship, while with stretch'd-out rays They meet each other, mingling blaze with blaze.
Page 309 - He was to undergo another severe operation on the next day after the letters came from Bologna, the success of which was very doubtful. How nobly does Sir Charles appear to support himself under such heavy afflictions! for those of his friends were ever his. But his heart bleeds in secret for them. A feeling heart is a blessing that no one, who has it, would be without ; and it is a moral security of innocence ; since the heart that is able to partake of the distress of another, cannot wilfully give...
Page 10 - Good girl ! That was an assertion of mine, and I will abide by it. Lucy simpered when we came to this place, and looked at me. She expected, I saw, my notice upon it ; so did your aunt : but the confession was so frank, that I was generous ; and only said, True as the gospel.
