For a man of high spirit, conscious of having (at least in one production) generally pleased the world, to be plagued and threatened by wretches that are low in every sense ; to be forced to drink himself into pains of the body, in order to get rid of the pains of the mind, is a misery.
עמוד 65 - I would wim no other, would fome one, by an addition of two hundred pounds a year, put it in my power to exhibit my own defigns. It is what I can now do in no other method than on paper.
עמוד 44 - I am angry, and envious, and dejected, and frantic, and disregard all present things, just as becomes a madman to do. I am infinitely pleased (though it is a gloomy joy) with the application of Dr. Swift's complaint, "that he is forced to die in a rage, like a poisoned rat in a hole.

עמוד 45 - I believe soon I shall bear to see nobody. I do hate all hereabouts already, except one or two. I will have my dinner brought upon my table in my absence, and the plates fetched away in my absence ; and nobody shall see me ; for I can never bear to appear in the same stupid mediocrity for years together, and gain no ground.
עמוד vii - I look upon my letters as some of my chef-d'oeuvres; and, could I be supposed to have the least pretensions to propriety of style or sentiment, I should imagine it must appear, principally, in my letters to his brother, and one or two more friends.
עמוד 5 - Ay, I thought you weren't without one about you, says I. — I don't think, says I, Mrs. Arnold, but your soul was design'd for a hen originally.' 'Why, and if I had been a hen, says she, I believe I should have done as much for my chickens as yonder great black-and-white hen does, tho' I say't that shou'd not say't, said she.
