Seite 106 - He is too picked, too spruce, too affected, too odd, as it were, too peregrinate as I may call it. Nath. A most singular and choice epithet. ( Takes out his table-book?) Hoi. He draweth out the thread of his verbosity finer than the staple of his argument.
Seite 135 - Confederation and moreover to legislate in all cases to which the separate States are incompetent, or in which the harmony of the United States may be interrupted by the exercise of individual Legislation; to negative all laws passed by the several States, contravening in the opinion of the National Legislature the articles of Union...

Seite 239 - In this age, the mere example of non-conformity, the mere refusal to bend the knee to custom, is itself a service.
Seite 109 - Now comes my Lover tripping like the Roe, And brings my longings tangled in her hair. To joy her love I'll build a kingly bower. Seated in hearing of a hundred streams...
Seite 103 - I am as sorry as if the original fault had been my fault, because myself have seen his demeanor no less civil than he excellent in the quality he professes. Besides, divers of worship have reported his uprightness of dealing, which argues his honesty, and his facetious grace in writing that approves his art.
