Σελίδα 206 - Spanish proverb be true, that a fool knows more in his own house than a wise man in another's.
Σελίδα 246 - Thy gowns, thy shoes, thy beds of roses, Thy cap, thy kirtle, and thy posies, Soon break, soon wither, soon forgotten, In folly ripe, in reason rotten.
Σελίδα 28 - I'll tell you, friend! a wise man and a fool. You'll find, if once the monarch acts the monk, Or, cobbler-like, the parson will be drunk, Worth makes the man, and want of it, the fellow; The rest is all but leather or prunella.
Σελίδα 165 - There is a tide in the affairs of men Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat; And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures.
Σελίδα 306 - O thou invisible spirit of wine ! if thou hast no name to be known by, let us call thee devil.
Σελίδα 68 - HAPPY the man, whose wish and care A few paternal acres bound, Content to breathe his native air, In his own ground. Whose herds with milk, whose fields with bread, Whose flocks supply him with attire ; Whose trees in summer yield him shade, In winter fire.
Σελίδα 88 - The purest treasure mortal times afford Is spotless reputation ; that away, Men are but gilded loam or painted clay.
Σελίδα 45 - What though no friends in sable weeds appear, Grieve for an hour, perhaps, then mourn a year, And bear about the mockery of woe To midnight dances, and the public show?
Σελίδα 92 - Reason's whole pleasure, all the joys of sense, Lie in three words, health, peace, and competence.
Σελίδα 83 - The latent tracts, the giddy heights, explore Of all who blindly creep, or sightless soar; Eye Nature's walks, shoot folly as it flies, And catch the manners living as they rise ; Laugh where we must, be candid where we can, But vindicate the ways of God to man.
