Σελίδα 61 - Amidst the other ; whose med'cinable eye Corrects the ill aspects of planets evil, And posts, like the commandment of a king, Sans check, to good and bad : But when the planets, In evil mixture, to disorder wander, What plagues, and what portents ! what mutiny ! What raging of the sea! shaking of earth! Commotion in the winds ! frights, changes, horrors, Divert and crack, rend and deracinate The unity and married calm of states Quite from their...
Σελίδα 61 - And therefore is the glorious planet Sol In noble eminence enthron'd and spher'd Amidst the other; whose medicinable eye Corrects the ill aspects of planets evil, And posts, like the commandment of a king, Sans check to good and bad.
Σελίδα 56 - OF old sat Freedom on the heights, The thunders breaking at her feet : Above her shook the starry lights : She heard the torrents meet.

The wisdom of a thousand years Is in them.
Σελίδα 61 - O, when degree is shak'd, (Which is the ladder to all high designs) The enterprise is sick.
Σελίδα 361 - Of healths five fathom deep ; and then anon Drums in his ear, at which he starts and wakes; And, being thus frighted, swears a prayer or two, And sleeps again.
Σελίδα 393 - Or, though they came with the rest in ships that bound through the waters, Dare they not enter the fight or stand in the council of Heroes, All for fear of the shame and the taunts my crime has awakened ? So said she : — they long since in Earth's soft arms were reposing. There, in their own dear land, their Fatherland, Lacedaemon. English Hexameter Translations, London, 1847, p. 242. I have changed Dr. Hawtrey's
Σελίδα 365 - Hawtrey may be said to have done by encouraging what Keate tried to do by threatening. If there is any truth in that melancholy caricature by which Keate is known to most men, if his battle-cry really was ' I'll flog you,' it is no less true, though it is by no means well known, that Hawtrey 's characteristic utterance was ' Very well, very good exercise...
