Halaman 25 - What have I done. Were my resolutions founded on reason, and sincerely made, — why then has heaven suffered me to fall ? I sought not the occasion ; and, if my heart deceives me not, compassion and generosity were my motives.
Halaman 16 - Be dumb for ever, silent as the grave ; Nor let thy fond, officious love disturb ^ My solemn sadness with the sound of joy.
Halaman 37 - I never shall sleep more — If then to sleep be to be happy, he, Who sleeps the longest, is the happiest ; Death is the longest sleep— Oh, have a care ? Mischief will thrive apace.
