Страница 232 - When I see kings lying by those who deposed them, when I consider rival wits placed side by side, or the holy men that divided the world with their contests and disputes, I reflect with sorrow and astonishment on the little competitions, factions, and debates of mankind.
Страница 232 - When I look upon the tombs of the great, every emotion of envy dies in me ; when I read the epitaphs of the beautiful, every inordinate desire goes out; when I meet with the grief of parents upon a tomb-stone, my heart melts with compassion ; when I see the tomb of the parents themselves, I consider the vanity of grieving for those whom we must quickly follow...
Страница 211 - Above them all the archangel: but his face Deep scars of thunder had intrench'd; and care Sat on his faded cheek; but under brows .Of dauntless courage, and considerate pride Waiting revenge; cruel his eye, but cast Signs of remorse and passion...

Страница 54 - For forms of government let fools contest; Whate'er is best administered is best: For modes of faith let graceless zealots fight; His can't be wrong whose life is in the right...
Страница 158 - That reaching home, the night, they said, is near, We must not now be parted, sojourn here— The new acquaintance soon became a guest, And, made so welcome at their simple feast, He bless'd the bread, but vanish'd at the word, And left them both exclaiming, 'Twas the Lord!
