Pagina 39 - Fame is the spur that the clear spirit doth raise (That last infirmity of noble mind) To scorn delights and live laborious days; But the fair guerdon when we hope to find, And think to burst out into sudden blaze, Comes the blind Fury with the abhorred shears, And slits the thin-spun life. "But not the praise...
Pagina 1 - And, having dropped the expected bag, pass on. He whistles as he goes, light-hearted wretch ! Cold and yet cheerful : messenger of grief Perhaps to thousands, and of joy to some ; To him indifferent whether grief or joy. Houses in ashes, and the fall of stocks...
Pagina 328 - SMALL service is true service while it lasts : Of humblest Friends, bright Creature ! scorn not one : The Daisy, by the shadow that it casts, Protects the lingering dew-drop from the Sun.
Pagina 311 - So dear to Heaven is saintly chastity That, when a soul is found sincerely so, A thousand liveried angels lackey her, Driving far off each thing of sin and guilt...
Pagina 159 - He who yon lordly feast enjoyeth, He who doth rest on his couch of down, He it was, who threw the forsaken Under the feet of the trampling town : Liar — betrayer — false as cruel, — What is the doom for his dastard sin ? His peers, they scorn ? — high dames, they shun him ? — Unbar yon palace, and gaze within.

At times there come, as come there ought, Grave moments of sedater thought, — When fortune frowns, nor lends our night One gleam of her inconstant light ; And hope, that decks the peasant's bower, Shines like the rainbow through the shower : 0 then I see, while seated nigh, A mother's heart shine in thine eye ; And proud resolve, and purpose meek, Speak of thee more than words can speak...
Pagina 302 - Stone walls do not a prison make, Nor iron bars a cage; Minds innocent and quiet take That for an hermitage; If I have freedom in my love And in my soul am free, Angels alone, that soar above, Enjoy such liberty.
Pagina 390 - Love he comes and Love he tarries Just as fate or fancy carries ; Longest stays, when sorest chidden ; Laughs and flies, when press'd and bidden.
Pagina iii - Gain on your purpos'd will. Nor in the bower, Where woodbines flaunt, and roses shed a couch, While Evening draws her crimson curtains round, Trust your soft minutes with betraying Man. And let th...
Pagina 67 - The impatient wish that never feels repose, Desire that with perpetual current flows, The fluctuating pangs of hope and fear, Joy distant still, and sorrow ever near. Thus, while the pangs of thought severer grew, The western breezes inauspicious blew, Hastening the moment of our last adieu.
