עמוד 297 - ... wants that exaltation above common life, which in tragick or heroick writings often reconciles us to bold flights and daring figures. Pastoral being the 'representation of an action or passion, by its effects upon a country life', has nothing peculiar but its confinement to rural imagery, without which it ceases to be pastoral.
עמוד 218 - The law of Jehovah is perfect, restoring the soul : The testimony of Jehovah is sure, making wise the simple. The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart: The commandment of Jehovah is pure, enlightening the eyes.
עמוד 278 - Monsieur told the Indian, whose simplicity astonished him, that he fancied he might wait long enough, when May arrived, for the arrival of his great Father. The Indian was so confident of his creature's obedience, that he offered to lay the Frenchman a wager of two gallons of rum, that at the time appointed he would come and crawl into his box.
עמוד 283 - That the Indians are of a cruel, revengeful, inexorable disposition, that they will watch whole days unmindful of the calls of nature, and make their way through pathless, and almost unbounded woods, subsisting only on the scanty produce of them, to pursue and revenge themselves of an enemy, that they hear unmoved the piercing cries of such as unhappily fall into their hands, and receive a diabolical pleasure from the tortures they inflict on their prisoners...

עמוד 278 - One day, having landed on the shore of the Mississippi, some miles below Lake Pepin, whilst my attendants were preparing my dinner, I walked out to take a view of the adjacent country. I had not proceeded far before I came to a fine, level, open plain, on which I perceived at a little distance a partial elevation, that had the appearance of an intrenchment.
עמוד 281 - I was at a loss what opinion to form of the prediction, but that I would readily attend him. On this we walked together to the place where the others were assembled. Every eye was again fixed by turns on...
עמוד 454 - I'd lay them at her feet to-morrow. But as we bards reap only bays, Nor much of that, though nought grows on it; I'll beat my brains to found her praife, And hammer them into a fonnet. And if Ihe deign one charming fmile, The bien reward of all my labours ; I'll never grudge my pains, or toil, But pity the dull Tquires, my neighbours.
עמוד 127 - ... reader some notion of the peculiar turn and cast of the original. The latter part of this design coincides perfectly well with the former : it is indeed impossible to give a just idea of the Prophet's manner of writing, otherwise than by a close literal version. And yet, though so many literal versions of this Prophet have been given, as well of old as in later times ; a just representation of his manner, and of the form of his composition, has never been attempted, or even thought of, by any...
עמוד 13 - The women who follow the Cimbri to war, are accompanied by gray-haired prophetesses, in white vestments, with canvas mantles fastened by clasps, a brazen girdle, and naked feet. These go with drawn swords through...
