Seite 68 - Ye stars! which are the poetry of heaven! If in your bright leaves we would read the fate Of men and empires, — 'tis to be forgiven, That in our aspirations to be great, Our destinies o'erleap their mortal state, And claim a kindred with you; for ye are A beauty and a mystery, and create In us such love and reverence from afar, That fortune, fame, power, life, have named themselves a star.
Seite 140 - And even since, and now, fair Italy ! Thou art the garden of the world, the home Of all Art yields, and Nature (') can decree ; Even in thy desert, what is like to thee ? Thy very weeds are beautiful, thy waste ; More rich than other climes' fertility ; Thy wreck a glory, and thy ruin graced With an immaculate charm which cannot be defaced.
Seite 181 - They look'd up to the sky, whose floating glow Spread like a rosy ocean, vast and bright; They gazed upon the glittering sea below, Whence the broad moon rose circling into sight; They heard the waves...

That is to say, the Brain, as a whole, suddenly declared itself to be tenfold more positive,...
Seite 115 - there is more joy in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, than over ninety and nine just persons that need no repentance.
Seite 182 - Tis melancholy and a fearful sign Of human frailty, folly, also crime, That love and marriage rarely can combine, Although they both are born in the same clime. Marriage from love, like vinegar from wine A sad, sour, sober beverage - by time Is sharpened from its high celestial flavour Down to a very homely household savour.
Seite 67 - It has been said in the praise of some men, that they could talk whole hours together upon any thing ; but it must be owned to the honour of the other sex, that there are many among them who can talk whole hours together upon nothing.
