Σελίδα 271 - This castle hath a pleasant seat ; the air Nimbly and sweetly recommends itself Unto our gentle senses. BAN. This guest of summer, The temple-haunting martlet, does approve By his loved mansionry that the heaven's breath Smells wooingly here : no jutty, frieze, Buttress, nor coign of vantage, but this bird Hath made his pendent bed and procreant cradle : Where they most breed and haunt, I have observed The air is delicate.
Σελίδα 273 - Shine ! shine ! shine ! Pour down your warmth, great sun ! While we bask, we two together. Two together ! Winds blow south, or winds blow north, Day come white, or night come black, Home, or rivers and mountains from home, > Singing all time, minding no time, While we two keep together.
Σελίδα 106 - A great city is that which has the greatest men and women, . • If it be a few ragged huts it is still the greatest city in the whole world.
Σελίδα 115 - Sir, if I thought your religion to be true, I would embrace it freely, without any such offer : but so long as I believe it to be what it is, the offer of the whole world is of no more value to me than a blackberry.

Σελίδα 473 - We must come very softly because of our wives and children. I pray you hasten them. Stay not night nor day, for the matter requireth haste.
Σελίδα 414 - Nature these cates with such a lavish hand Pours out among them, that our coarser land Tastes of that bounty, and does cloth return, Which not for warmth, but ornament, is worn; For the kind spring, which but salutes us here, Inhabits there, and courts them all the year.
Σελίδα 270 - So every spirit, as it is most pure, And hath in it the more of heavenly light, So it the fairer body doth procure To habit in, and it more fairly dight, With cheerful grace and amiable sight. For, of the soul, the body form doth take, For soul is form, and doth the body make.
