507 ページ - Tis that which we all see and know." Any one better apprehends what it is by acquaintance than I can inform him by description. It is indeed a thing so versatile and multiform, appearing in so many shapes, so many postures, so many garbs, so variously apprehended by several eyes and judgments, that it seemeth no less hard to settle a clear and certain notion thereof, than to make a portrait of Proteus, or to define the figure of the fleeting air.

Sir, executions are intended to draw spectators. If they do not draw spectators, they don't answer their purpose. The old method was most satisfactory to all parties ; the publick was gratified by a procession; the criminal was supported by it. Why is all this to be swept away ?
635 ページ - I loved the man, and do honour his memory, on this side idolatry, as much as any. He was (indeed) honest, and of an open and free nature...
605 ページ - The collection of songs was my vade mecum. I pored over them, driving my cart, or walking to labour, song by song, verse by verse ; carefully noting the true, tender, or sublime, from affectation and fustian. I am convinced I owe to this practice much of my critic-craft, such as it is.
172 ページ - All you that in the condemned hold do lie, Prepare you, for to-morrow you shall die : Watch all and pray ; the hour is drawing near That you before the Almighty must appear : Examine well yourselves ; in time repent, That you may not to eternal flames be sent : And when St. Sepulchre's bell to-morrow tolls, The Lord above have mercy on your souls...
599 ページ - Burns was rapt rapt in meditation. What do you think he was about ? He was charging the English army along with Bruce, at Bannockburn. He was engaged in the same manner on our ride home from St. Mary's Isle, and I did not disturb him.
