Halaman 67 - Tis enough, that, when it fell, Thou its ruin didst not share. Envy's censure, Flattery's praise, With unmov'd indifference view ; Learn to tread life's dangerous maze, With unerring Virtue's clue. Void of strong desire and fear, Life's wide ocean trust no more ; Strive thy little bark to steer With...
Halaman 155 - Dissolve, if you please, the Parliament you have betrayed, and appeal to the people, who, I believe, mistrust you. For me there remains this at least — the opportunity of expressing thus publicly my belief that a Conservative Government is an organised hypocrisy.

Halaman 252 - Richard, Richard, dost thou think we'll hear thee poison the court? Richard, thou art an old fellow, an old knave; thou hast written books enough to load a cart, every one as full of sedition, I might say treason, as an egg is full of meat.

Halaman 182 - You ought at once, whether you receive news of success or defeat, to tell the people of India that the relation between them and their real Ruler and Sovereign, Queen Victoria, shall be drawn nearer. You must act upon the opinion of India on that subject immediately ; and you can only act upon the opinion of Eastern nations through their imagination.
Halaman 4 - Sir, he was a scoundrel, and a coward : a scoundrel for charging a blunderbuss against religion and morality ; a coward, because he had not resolution to fire it off himself, but left half a crown to a beggarly Scotchman to draw the trigger after his death...
Halaman 238 - October 10], he had every night a meeting at the (then) Turke's head, in the New Pallaceyard, where they take water, the next house to the staires, at one Miles's, where was made purposely a large ovall-table, with a passage in the middle for Miles to deliver his Coffee. About it sate his disciples, and the virtuosi.
Halaman 196 - As I sat opposite the Treasury Bench the ministers reminded me of one of those marine landscapes not very unusual on the coasts of South America. You behold a range of exhausted volcanoes. Not a flame flickers on a single pallid crest. But the situation is still dangerous. There are occasional earthquakes, and ever and anon the dark rumbling of the sea.
