Pagina 341 - A thousand fantasies Begin to throng into my memory, Of calling shapes and beckoning shadows dire, And airy tongues that syllable men's names On sands and shores and desert wildernesses.

Pagina 147 - And, since blank paper is denied the press, He mingles the whole alphabet by guess : In various sets, which various words compose, Of which, he hopes, mankind the meaning knows.
