Σελίδα 368 - See the grisly texture grow, ("Tis of human entrails made,) And the weights, that play below, Each a gasping warrior's head. Shafts for shuttles, dipt in gore, Shoot the trembling cords along Sword, that once a Monarch bore, Keep the tissue close and strong.
Σελίδα 255 - Go forth, O ye daughters of Zion, and behold king Solomon with the crown wherewith his mother crowned him in the day of his espousals, and in the day of the gladness of his heart.
Σελίδα 369 - Eirin weep, Ne'er again his likeness see ; Long her strains in sorrow steep, Strains of immortality ! Horror covers all the heath, Clouds of carnage blot the sun. Sisters, weave the web of death ; Sisters, cease ; the work is done.
Σελίδα 248 - I must tell you a great piece of refinement of Harley. He charged me to come to him often ; I told him I was loth to trouble him in so much business as he had, and desired I might have leave to come at his levee ; which he immediately refused, and said, That was not a place for friends to come to.

Σελίδα 296 - ... horses of former ages; and if there be any improvement in the species it is owing to our manner of breeding and training them. But a man at this time, who has been tolerably well educated in an improved Christian country, is a being possessed of much greater power to be, and to make happy, than a person of the same age, in the same or any other country some centuries ago. And for this reason I make no doubt that a person some centuries hence will, at the same age, be as much superior to us.
Σελίδα 334 - I was there the ship thumped with such violence, and the water came in so fast, that I was forced to get upon the quarter-deck again, without saving a single rag but what was upon my back' The boatswain and some of the people would not leave the ship so long as there was any liquor to be got at ; upon which Captain Cheap suffered himself to be helped out of his bed, put into the boat and carried on shore.
