Страница 315 - Men suffer all their life long under the foolish superstition that they can be cheated. But it is as impossible for a man to be cheated by any one but himself, as for a thing to be and not to be at the same time.
Страница 128 - I feel death rising higher still and higher, Within my bosom; every breath I fetch Shuts up my life within a shorter compass, And, like the vanishing sound of bells, grows less And less each pulse, till it be lost in air.
Страница 380 - ... See, how on every bough the birds express, In their sweet notes, their happiness. They all enjoy, and nothing spare ; But on their mother nature lay their care: Why then should man, the lord of all below, Such troubles choose to know, As none of all his subjects undergo?

I knew some, who, if they were to write in blank verse, Sir, I ask your pardon, would think it sounded more heroically to write, Sir, I your pardon ask.
Страница 307 - I must crave leave to say, that my whole Discourse was sceptical, according to that way of reasoning which was used by SOCRATES, PLATO, and all the Academics of old ; which TULLY and the best of the Ancients followed, and which is imitated by the modest Inquisitions of the Royal Society. That it is so, not only the name will show, which is An Essay ; but the frame and composition of the work.
