Seite 215 - Oh, Love! what is it in this world of ours Which makes it fatal to be loved? Ah, why With cypress branches hast thou Wreathed thy bowers, And made thy best interpreter a sigh? As those who dote on odours pluck the flowers, And place them on their breast- but place to dieThus the frail beings we would fondly cherish Are laid within our bosoms but to perish.
Seite 157 - Who wickedly is wise, or madly brave, Is but the more a fool, the more a knave. Who noble ends by noble means obtains, Or failing, smiles in exile or in chains, Like good Aurelius let him reign, or bleed Like Socrates ;—that man is great indeed. What's fame ? a fancied life in others...
Seite 157 - All that we feel of it begins and ends In the small circle of our foes or friends; To all beside as much an empty shade...
Seite 239 - Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at the north wind's breath, And stars to set — but all, Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O Death...
Seite 178 - What marriage may be in the case of two persons of cultivated faculties, identical in opinions and purposes, between whom there exists that best kind of equality, similarity of powers and capacities with reciprocal superiority in them - so that each can enjoy the luxury of looking up to the other, and can have alternatively the pleasure of leading and of being led in the path of development - I will not attempt to describe.
Seite 1 - Tis education forms the common mind ; Just as the twig is bent the tree's inclined.
Seite 174 - Base envy withers at another's joy, And hates that excellence it cannot reach.
Seite 99 - A woman can hardly ever choose in that way ; she is dependent on what happens to her. She must take meaner things, because only meaner things are within her reach.
Seite 154 - The virtue of Prosperity is temperance, the virtue of Adversity is fortitude; which in morals is the more heroical virtue. Prosperity is the blessing of the Old Testament; Adversity is the blessing of the New; which carrieth the greater benediction, and the clearer revelation of God's favour.
