183 ページ - Julius bleed for justice' sake? What villain touch'd his body, that did stab, And not for justice? What, shall one of us, That struck the foremost man of all this world, But for supporting robbers; shall we now Contaminate our fingers with base bribes? And sell the mighty space of our large...
191 ページ - In spite of outward blemishes, she shone, For humour fam'd, and humour all her own. Easy, as if at home, the stage she trod, Nor sought the critic's praise, nor fear'd his rod.

242 ページ - Fox always spoke to the question ; Pitt to the passions. Fox, to carry the question ; Pitt to raise himself. Fox pointed out, Pitt lashed the errors of his antagonists. Pitt's talents were likely to make him soonest ; Fox's to keep him First Minister longest.
161 ページ - Pitt was undoubtedly one of the greatest masters of ornamental eloquence. His language was amazingly fine and flowing ; his voice admirable ; his action " most expressive ; his figure genteel and commanding. Bitter satire was his forte ; when he attempted ridicule, which was very seldom, he succeeded happily ; when he attempted to reason, poorly.
272 ページ - Gideon, who is dead worth more than the whole land of Canaan, has left the reversion of all his milk and honey, after his son and daughter and their children, to the Duke of Devonshire, without insisting on his taking the name, or even being circumcised.
