עמוד 21 - The Queen is most anxious to enlist everyone who can speak or write to join in checking this mad, wicked folly of * Woman's Rights,' with all its attendant horrors, on which her poor feeble sex is bent, forgetting every sense of womanly feeling and propriety.
עמוד 10 - The Clouds that gather round the setting sun Do take a sober colouring from an eye That hath kept watch o'er man's mortality ; Another race hath been, and other palms are won. Thanks to the human heart by which we live, Thanks to its tenderness, its joys, and fears ; To me the meanest flower that blows can give Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.
עמוד 115 - Now the tir'd hunter winds a parting note, And Echo bids good-night from every glade ; Yet wait awhile, and see the calm leaves float Each to his rest beneath their parent shade.
עמוד 103 - ... name, his worth, his age, Is wet with Anson's tear : And tears by bards or heroes shed Alike immortalize the dead. I therefore purpose not, or dream, Descanting on his fate, To give the melancholy theme A more enduring date : But misery still delights to trace Its semblance in another's case. No voice divine the storm allayed, No light propitious shone, When, snatched from all effectual aid, We perished, each alone : But I beneath a rougher sea, And whelmed in deeper gulfs than he.
עמוד 18 - I have been bullied by an usurper ; I have been neglected by a court ; but I will not be dictated to by a subject : your man shan't stand. " ANNE Dorset, Pembroke and Montgomery.
עמוד 269 - His life was a gyration of energetic curiosity, an insatiable whirl of social celebrity. There was not a congregation of sages and philosophers in any part of Europe which he did not attend as a brother. He was present at the camp of Kalisch in his Yeomanry uniform, and assisted at the festivals of Barcelona in an Andalusian jacket. He was everywhere and at everything ; he had gone down in a diving bell, gone up in a balloon.
עמוד 31 - I meant the day-star should not brighter rise, Nor lend like influence from his lucent seat. I meant she should be courteous, facile, sweet, Hating that solemn vice of greatness, pride ; I meant each softest virtue there should meet, Fit in that softer bosom to reside. Only a learned and a manly soul I purposed her ; that should with even powers, The rock, the spindle, and the shears control Of destiny, and spin her own free hours.
עמוד 128 - In regions mild of calm and serene air, Above the smoke and stir of this dim spot Which men call Earth, and, with low-thoughted care.
עמוד 31 - ON LUCY, COUNTESS OF BEDFORD. This morning, timely rapt with holy fire, I thought to form unto my zealous Muse, What kind of creature I could most desire To honor, serve, and love, as Poets use. I meant to make her fair, and free, and wise, Of greatest blood, and yet more good than great I meant the day-star should not brighter rise, Nor lend like influence from his lucent seat.
עמוד 289 - Looking calmly on this course of experience, I do believe that the Almighty has employed me for His purposes in a manner larger or more special than before, and has strengthened me and led me on accordingly...
