Страница 388 - In thrilling regions of thick-ribbed ice ; To be imprison'd in the viewless winds, And blown with restless violence round about The pendent world ; or to be worse than worst Of those, that lawless and incertain...
Страница 467 - Knowledge is of two kinds. We know a subject ourselves, or we know where we can find information upon it.
Страница 439 - OATS [a grain which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people], — Croker.
