עמוד 131 - To fill the hour, — that is happiness; to fill the hour and leave no crevice for a repentance or an approval. We live amid surfaces, and the true art of life is to skate well on them.
עמוד 263 - I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge. And I gave my heart to know wisdom, and to know madness and folly: I perceived that this also is vexation of spirit. For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
עמוד 39 - THE OLD FAMILIAR FACES. I HAVE had playmates, I have had companions, In my days of childhood, in my joyful school-days, All, all are gone, the old familiar faces. I have been laughing, I have been carousing, Drinking late, sitting late, with my bosom cronies, All, all are gone, the old familiar faces.
עמוד 308 - O go and sit with her, and be o'ershaded Under the languid downfall of her hair: She wears a coronal of flowers faded Upon her forehead, and a face of care; There is enough of wither'd everywhere To make her bower, - and enough of gloom; There is enough of sadness to invite, If only for the rose that died, whose doom Is Beauty's...

עמוד 211 - LADY Clara Vere de Vere, Of me you shall not win renown : You thought to break a country heart For pastime, ere you went to town. At me you smiled, but unbeguiled I saw the snare, and I retired : The daughter of a hundred Earls, You are not one to be desired. Lady Clara Vere de Vere, I know you proud to bear your name, Your pride is yet no mate for mine...
עמוד 72 - It has been somewhat unfairly said that it requires a surgical operation to get a joke into a...
עמוד 112 - ... the last person in the world to stand in the way of his future prospects. The courtship, indeed, was attended with numberless " complaints and apologies, bickerings and reconciliations.
עמוד 68 - ... know why I like London so much? Why, if the world must consist of so many fools as it does, I choose to take them in the gross, and not made into separate pills, as they are prepared in the country. Besides, there is no being alone but in a metropolis: the worst place in the world to find solitude is in the country: questions grow there, and that unpleasant Christian commodity, neighbours.
עמוד 66 - ... will do anything in reason to avoid it. To illustrate : — I one day took passage on a steamer, and was on board half an hour before she sailed. I went at once to the purser's office, paid my fare, and asked for a room. Purser said I could not have a room, but must sleep on a sofa in the cabin. Now, if there is one thing that I dislike more than another, it is to sleep in public on the stage in presence of a crowded audience. I want a room to myself when it can be had, as I know that while sleeping...
