54. oldal - Such an act, That blurs the grace and blush of modesty; Calls virtue, hypocrite; takes off the rose From the fair forehead of an innocent love, And sets a blister there"; makes marriage vows As false as dicers...
74. oldal - Take but degree away, untune that string, And, hark, what discord follows ! each thing meets In mere oppugnancy. The bounded waters Should lift their bosoms higher than the shores, And make a sop of all this solid globe. Strength should be lord of imbecility, And the rude son should strike his father dead. force should be right ; or, rather, right and wrong, (Between whose endless jar justice resides,) Should lose their names, and so should justice too.
74. oldal - And posts, like the commandment of a king, Sans check, to good and bad: But when the planets, In evil mixture, to disorder wander, What plagues, and what portents ! what mutiny ! What raging of the sea ! shaking of earth ! Commotion in the winds ! frights, changes, horrors, Divert and crack, rend and deracinate The unity and married calm of states | Quite from their fixture!
264. oldal - Yet when I approach Her loveliness, so absolute she seems And in herself complete, so well to know Her own, that what she wills to do or say, Seems wisest, virtuousest, discreetest, best.
73. oldal - The heavens themselves, the planets, and this centre, Observe degree, priority, and place, Insisture, course, proportion, season, form, Office, and custom, in all line of order...
270. oldal - Can such things be, And overcome us like a summer's cloud, Without our special wonder?
49. oldal - Neither was it mine adversary that did magnify himself against me; for then peradventure I would have hid myself from him : 14 But it was even thou, my companion, my guide, and mine own familiar friend.
84. oldal - When vice prevails, and impious men bear sway, The post of honour is a private station.
49. oldal - God, that endureth for ever, shall hear me, and bring them down : for they will not turn, nor fear God. 21 He laid his hands upon such as be at peace with him : and he brake his covenant. 22 The words of his mouth were softer than butter, having war in his heart : his words were smoother than oil, and yet be they very swords.
3. oldal - NOT to admire, is all the art I know, To make men happy, and to keep them so.
