Seite 149 - The world was void: The populous and the powerful was a lump, Seasonless, herbless, treeless, manless, lifeless; A lump of death, a chaos of hard clay. The rivers, lakes and ocean, all stood still, And nothing stirred within their silent depths. Ships, sailorless, lay rotting on the sea, And their masts fell down piecemeal: as they dropped They slept on the abyss, without a surge ; The waves were dead; the tides were in their grave; The moon, their mistress, had expired before; The winds were withered...

Seite 50 - ... loathsome spitting, from the contamination of which it was absolutely impossible to protect our dresses; the frightful manner of feeding with their knives, till the whole blade seemed to enter into the mouth ; and the still more frightful manner of cleaning the teeth...
Seite 487 - I need say no more ; but as for that Hydra, take good heed, for you know that here I have found it as well cunning as malicious. It is true that your grounds are well laid, and I assure you that I have a great trust in your care and judgment. Yet my opinion is, that it will not be the worse for my service though their obstinacy make you to break them, for I fear that they have some ground to demand more than...
Seite 101 - Sunday (said he) was a heavy day to me when I was a boy. My mother confined me on that day, and made me read ' The Whole Duty of Man,' from a great part of which I could derive no instruction.
