Halaman 387 - Shakespeare was of us, Milton was for us, Burns, Shelley, were with us - they watch from their graves! He alone breaks from the van and the freemen, He alone sinks to the rear and the slaves! We shall march prospering, - not thro...
Halaman 340 - Earl's gift; but ever at a breath She linger'd, looking like a summer moon Half-dipt in cloud : anon she shook her head, And shower'd the rippled ringlets to her knee; Unclad herself in haste: adown the stair Stole on; and, like a creeping sunbeam, slid From pillar unto pillar, until she reach'd The gateway; there she found her palfrey trapt In purple blazon'd with armorial gold.
Halaman 387 - JUST for a handful of silver he left us, Just for a riband to stick in his coat — Found the one gift of which fortune bereft us, Lost all the others she lets us devote ; They, with the gold to give, doled him out silver, So much was theirs who so little allowed : How all our copper had gone for his service ! Rags — were they purple, his heart had been proud...
Halaman 51 - Avec de la vertu, de la capacité, et une bonne conduite, l'on peut être insupportable. Les manières, que l'on néglige comme de petites choses, sont souvent ce qui fait que les hommes décident de vous en bien ou en mal : une légère attention à les avoir douces et polies prévient leurs mauvais jugements.
Halaman 200 - O men with sisters dear! O men with mothers and wives! It is not linen you're wearing out, But human creatures' lives! Stitch — stitch — stitch — In poverty, hunger, and dirt, Sewing at once with a double thread, A Shroud as well as a Shirt!
Halaman 149 - Ni l'heure ni la saison n'étaient de celles qui peuvent , ce semble du moins, déchaîner les orages de la pensée. Cet assemblage insignifiant d'objets vulgaires ne pouvait faire songer qu'à une paisible continuation de l'entretien commencé, à une soirée unie au coin du feu entre quelques bouteilles de vin et quelques conserves de fruits...
Halaman 164 - THE sun is warm, the sky is clear, The waves are dancing fast and bright, Blue isles and snowy mountains wear The purple noon's transparent might, The breath of the moist earth is light, Around its unexpanded buds ; Like many a voice of one delight, The winds, the birds, the ocean floods, The City's voice itself is soft like Solitude's.
Halaman 63 - If once my Lord his graceful balance loses, Or fails to keep each foot where each horse chooses ; If Peel but gives one extra touch of whip To Papist's tail or Protestant's ear-tip — That instant ends their glorious horsemanship ! Off bolt the sever'd steeds, for mischief free, And down, between them, plumps Lord Anglesea ! THE LIMBO OF LOST REPUTATIONS.
Halaman 332 - Did what I would; but ere the night we rose And sauntered home beneath a moon, that, just In crescent, dimly rained about the leaf Twilights of airy silver, till we reached The limit of the hills; and as we sank From rock to rock upon the glooming quay, The town was hushed beneath us : lower down The bay was oily-calm; the harbor-buoy With one green sparkle ever and anon Dipt by itself, and we were glad at heart.
Halaman 175 - Et c'est à tort que l'on conclut à la vanité de la science, de l'industrie, de l'art, de l'amour, de tout ce qui est grand, de tout ce qui est beau dans l'homme.
