Pagina 230 - If they were not his own by finessing and trick: He cast off his friends, as a huntsman his pack, For he knew when he pleased he could whistle them back.
Pagina 230 - At this man's table I enjoyed many cheerful and instructive hours, with companions such as are not often found ; with one who has lengthened, and one who has gladdened, life ; with Dr. James, whose skill in...
Pagina 288 - When hard words, jealousies, and fears, Set folks together by the ears, And made them fight, like mad or drunk, For dame Religion, as for punk ;' (Whose honesty they all durst swear for, Though not a man of them knew wherefore ;) When gospel-trumpeter, surrounded With long-ear'd rout, to battle sounded ; And pulpit, drum ecclesiastic, Was beat with fist instead of a stick ; Then did Sir Knight abandon dwelling, And out he rode a colonelling.
Pagina 303 - Its aim is to exhibit monsters not men; and all distortions and exaggerations whatever are within its proper province.

Pagina 208 - HERE continueth to rot The Body of FRANCIS CHARTRES, Who with an INFLEXIBLE CONSTANCY, and INIMITABLE UNIFORMITY of Life, PERSISTED, In spite of AGE and INFIRMITIES, In the Practice of EVERY HUMAN VICE; Excepting PRODIGALITY and HYPOCRISY : His insatiable AVARICE exempted him from the first, His matchless IMPUDENCE from the second.
Pagina 180 - For Time shall with his ready pencil stand; Retouch your figures with his ripening hand; Mellow your colours, and imbrown the teint; Add every grace, which Time alone can grant; To future ages shall your fame convey, And give more beauties than he takes away.
