Halaman 90 - Persians' grave, I could not deem myself a slave. A king sate on the rocky brow Which looks o'er sea-born Salamis; And ships by thousands lay below, And men in nations; — all were his! He counted them at break of day, And when the sun set, where were they?
Halaman 270 - Tis a stern and startling thing to think How often mortality stands on the brink Of its grave without any misgiving: And yet in this slippery world of strife, In the stir of human bustle so rife, There are daily sounds to tell us that Life Is dying, and Death is living!
Halaman 272 - Gold ! Gold ! Gold ! Gold ! Bright and yellow, hard and cold, Molten, graven, hammered, and rolled ; Heavy to get, and light to hold ; Hoarded, bartered, bought, and sold, Stolen, borrowed, squandered, doled : Spurned by the young, but hugged by the old To the very verge of the churchyard mould ; Price of many a crime untold ; Gold ! Gold ! Gold ! Gold...
Halaman 361 - Indeed, the perfect and sinewy frame of this admirable man, gave him such a surpassing grip with his knees, that a horse might as soon disencumber itself of the saddle as of such a rider. " The General usually rode in the chase a horse called Blueskin, of a dark, iron-grey colour, approaching to blue. This was a fine but fiery animal, and of great endurance in a long run.

Halaman 242 - ... enthusiasm completely got the better of her ; and starting to her feet with an exclamation of joy, she waved her pockethandkerchief as if to cheer on the graceful fugitives. Charles, mad with vexation, discharged a second and a third shot in rapid succession ; but all with the same result. The bullets rebounding from the hard ground, went spinning and whistling; throug-h the woods, as if in derision of the unsteady hand that fired them ; and the deer, after a few more bounds, were lost to view...
Halaman 266 - And home-made liqueurs nnd w-aters ? Home-made pop that will not foam, And home-made dishes that drive one from home, Not to name each mess, For the face or dress, Home-made by the homely daughters...
Halaman 16 - French, that you may knock a man down, provided you preface the offence with the word "pardon.'" or, as the song runs, " qu'on peut tout faire, Quand on le fait poliment !" In England you may do what you like, provided you do it plausibly. Cant your way through life, with the seven deadly sins in your train, not asserting them to be angels, but wishing to goodness they were not quite so wicked, and humbly hoping that some day or other they may see the error...
Halaman 27 - Tieck appears to entertain no doubt upon the subject — and I hope to bring the matter before you in such a manner, as will satisfy you of the correctness of Tieck's views in this respect. But to the point — Shakespeare unquestionably derived his idea of the
