Σελίδα 133 - The only art her guilt to cover, To hide her shame from every eye, To give repentance to her lover, And wring his bosom, — is to die.
Σελίδα 100 - I had rather be an under-turnkey in Newgate. I was up early and late ; I was brow-beat by the master, hated for my ugly face by the mistress, worried by the boys within, and never permitted to stir out to meet civility abroad.
Σελίδα 18 - tis certain, handsome women here ; and 'tis as certain, they have handsome men to keep them company.

Σελίδα 87 - This person was no other than the philanthropic bookseller in St. Paul's Churchyard, who has written so many little books for children. He called himself their friend ; but he was the friend of all mankind.
Σελίδα 113 - I WAS ever of opinion, that the honest man who married and brought up a large family did more service than he who continued single, and only talked of population.
Σελίδα 29 - The crackling faggot flies. But nothing could a charm impart To soothe the stranger's woe ; For grief was heavy at his heart, And tears began to flow. His rising cares the Hermit spied, With answering care opprest : « And whence, unhappy youth, » he cried,
