Halaman 244 - The royal refugee our breed restores, With foreign courtiers, and with foreign whores : And carefully repeopled us again, Throughout his lazy, long, lascivious reign, With such a blest and true-born English fry, As much illustrates our nobility.
Halaman 251 - ll starve themselves and families. An Englishman will fairly drink as much As will maintain two families of Dutch : Subjecting all their labour to their pots ; The greatest artists are the greatest sots. The country poor do by example live ; The gentry lead them, and the clergy drive : What may we not from such examples hope ? The landlord is their god, the priest their pope. A drunken clergy and a swearing bench Has...
Halaman 281 - It is now near fourteen years 1 that the glory and peace of the purest and most flourishing Church in the world has been eclipsed, buffeted, and disturbed by a sort of men whom God in His providence has suffered to insult over her and bring her down. These have been the days of her humiliation and tribulation.
Halaman 247 - A True-Born Englishman's a contradiction, In speech an irony, in fact a fiction; A banter made to be a test of fools, Which those that use it justly ridicules; A metaphor invented to express A man akin to all the universe.
Halaman 291 - I am not of the opinion they are so numerous as is pretended; their party is more numerous than their persons, and those mistaken people of the Church, who are misled and deluded by their wheedling artifices to join with them, make their party the greater.
Halaman 277 - COULD but our ancestors retrieve their fate, And see their offspring thus degenerate ; How we contend for birth and names unknown, And build on their past actions, not our own ; They'd cancel records, and their tombs deface, And openly disown the vile degenerate race : For fame of families is all a cheat, It's personal virtue only makes us great.
Halaman 285 - England and erect a new colony, and give them great privileges, grants, and suitable powers, keep them under protection, and defend them against all invaders, and receive no taxes or revenue from them. This was the cruelty of the Church of England; fatal lenity!
Halaman 288 - The late reign is too fresh in the memory of all the world to need a comment ; how under pretence of joining with the church in redressing some grievances, they pushed things to that extremity, in conjunction with some mistaken gentlemen, as to depose the late king, as if the grievance of the nation could not have been redressed but by the absolute ruin of the prince : here is an instance of their temper, their peace and charity.
Halaman 34 - I should dream that my money was lost, and start like one frightened ; then, finding it fast in my hand, try to go to sleep again, but could not for a long while, then drop and start again. At last a fancy came into my head, that if I fell asleep, I should dream of the money, and talk of it in my sleep, and tell that I had money ; which if I should do, and one of the rogues should hear me, they would pick it out of my bosom, and of my hand too, without waking me ; and after that thought I could not...
Halaman 249 - Draymen and porters fill the city Chair And footboys magisterial purple wear. Fate has but very small distinction set Betwixt the counter and the coronet. Tarpaulin lords, pages of high renown, Rise up by poor men's valour, not their own. Great families of yesterday we show, And lords whose parents were the Lord knows who...
