Pagina 453 - Two principles in human nature reign; Self-love, to urge, and reason, to restrain; Nor this a good, nor that a bad we call, Each works its end, to move or govern all: And to their proper operation still Ascribe all good; to their improper, ill.
Pagina 451 - Behold the child, by Nature's kindly law, Pleas'd with a rattle, tickled with a straw : Some livelier plaything gives his youth delight, A little louder, but as empty quite : Scarfs, garters, gold, amuse his riper stage, And beads and prayer-books are the toys of age : Pleas'd with this bauble still, as that before, Till tir'd he sleeps, and life's poor play is o'er.
Pagina 383 - Absolute liberty, just and true liberty, equal and impartial liberty, is the thing that we stand in need of.
Pagina 488 - N'allez-vous pas dans le temple du Goût Vous décrasser? Nous , messieurs ? point du tout ; Ce n'est pas là , grâce au ciel , notre étude : Le goût n'est rien ; nous avons l'habitude De rédiger au long de point en point Ce qu'on pensa; mais nous ne pensons point.
Pagina 453 - Plato to th' empyreal sphere, To the first good, first perfect, and first fair; Or tread the mazy round his followers trod, And quitting sense call imitating God; As eastern priests in giddy circles run, And turn their heads to imitate the sun. Go, teach Eternal Wisdom how to rule— Then drop into thyself, and be a fool!
Pagina 445 - Ilium waits th' impending fall. Invocation to the Catalogue of Ships. Say, Virgins, seated round the throne divine, All-knowing Goddesses ! immortal Nine ! Since earth's wide regions, heaven's unmeasur'd height, And hell's abyss, hide nothing from your sight, (We, wretched mortals! lost in doubts below, But guess by rumour, and but boast we know) Oh say what heroes...
Pagina 526 - Dans Marivaux, l'impatience de faire preuve de finesse et de sagacité perçait visiblement. Montesquieu, avec plus de calme, attendait que la balle vînt à lui, mais il l'attendait. Mairan guettait l'occasion. Astruc ne daignait pas l'attendre. Fontenelle seul la laissait venir sans la chercher; et il usait si sobrement de l'attention qu'on donnait à l'entendre, que ses mots fins, ses jolis contes n'occupaient jamais qu'un moment.
Pagina 383 - Nay, if we may openly speak the truth, and as becomes one man to another, neither Pagan nor Mahometan, nor Jew, ought to be excluded from the civil rights of the commonwealth because of his religion.
Pagina 387 - And having once the good of our species or public in view, as our end or aim, 'tis impossible we should be misguided by any means to a false apprehension or sense of right or wrong. As to this second case therefore, religion (according as the kind may prove) is capable of doing great good or harm, and atheism nothing positive in either way.
Pagina 479 - Je veux aimer ce Dieu, je cherche en lui mon père : On me montre un tyran que nous devons haïr. Il créa des humains à lui-même semblables, Afin de les mieux avilir ; II nous donna des cœurs coupables, Pour avoir droit de nous punir ; II nous fit aimer le plaisir, Pour nous mieux tourmenter par des maux effroyables, Qu'un miracle éternel empêche de finir.
