32 ページ - Universal History, the history of what man has accomplished in this world, is at bottom the History of the Great Men who have worked here. They were the leaders of men, these great ones ; the modellers, patterns, and in a wide sense creators, of whatsoever the general mass of men contrived to do or to attain...
113 ページ - Full little knowest thou, that hast not tried, What hell it is in suing long to bide ; To lose good days that might be better spent ; To waste long nights in pensive discontent; To speed to-day, to be put back to-morrow ; To feed on hope ; to pine with fear and sorrow ; To have thy Prince's grace, yet want her peers...
1 ページ - But deeds and language such as men do use, And persons such as Comedy would choose, When she would show an image of the times. And sport with human follies, not with crimes; Except we make 'em such, by loving still Our popular errors, when we know they're ill.
332 ページ - C'en est le sentiment qui forme tous les nôtres ; Lui seul allume, éteint, ou change nos désirs : Les objets de nos vœux le sont de nos plaisirs. Vous-même, qui brûlez d'une ardeur si fidèle, Aimez-vous Domitie, ou vos plaisirs en elle? Et quand vous aspirez à des liens si doux, Est-ce pour l'amour d'elle, ou pour l'amour de vous?

Thou that art now the world's fresh ornament And only herald to the gaudy spring, Within thine own bud buriest thy...
113 ページ - Princes grace, yet want her Peeres ; To have thy asking, yet waite manie yeeres ; To fret thy soule with crosses and with cares ; To eate thy heart through comfortlesse dispaires; To fawne, to crowche, to waite, to ride, to ronne, To spend, to give, to want, to be undonne.
338 ページ - Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch Of the ranged empire fall ! Here is my space. Kingdoms are clay : our dungy earth alike Feeds beast as man: the nobleness of life Is to do thus ; when such a mutual pair [Embracing. And such a twain can do't, in which I bind, On pain of punishment, the world to weet We stand up peerless.
136 ページ - With pains unknown increased her smart Vanessa, not in years a score, Dreams of a gown of forty-four ; Imaginary charms can find In eyes with reading almost blind : Cadenus now no more appears N. Declined in health, advanced in years.) She fancies music in his tongue : / Nor farther looks, but thinks him young.
139 ページ - Now, said the nymph, to let you see My actions with your rules agree ; That I can vulgar forms despise, And have no secrets to disguise ; I knew, by what you said and writ, How dangerous things were men of wit ; You caution'd me against their charms, But never gave me equal arms ; Your lessons found the weakest- part, Aim'd at the head, but reach'd the heart.
