Seite 208 - This above all, — to thine own self be true; And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. Farewell: my blessing season this in thee!
Seite 208 - The friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel ; But do not dull thy palm with entertainment Of each new-hatch'd, unfledg'd comrade.

Seite 9 - Too-Too's musical voice, sounding strangely to the ear from so great a height, and beheld him peeping down upon me from out his leafy covert, he always recalled to my mind Dibdin's lines — "There's a sweet little cherub that sits up aloft, To look out for the life of poor Jack.
Seite 8 - For who the devil doth not know That titles and estates bestow , An ample stock, where'er they fall, Of graces which we mental call ? Beggars, in every age and nation, Are rogues and fools by situation ; The rich and great are understood To be of course both wise and good...
