Página 270 - Against Heaven's hand or will, nor bate a jot Of heart or hope, but still bear up and steer Right onward. What supports me, dost thou ask ? The conscience, friend, to have lost them overplied In Liberty's defence, my noble task, Of which all Europe rings from side to side. This thought might lead me through the world's vain mask Content though blind, had I no better guide.

But O as to embrace me she enclin'd I wak'd, she fled, and day brought back my night.
Página 259 - I trust hereby to make it manifest with what small willingness I endure to interrupt the pursuit of no less hopes than these, and leave a calm and pleasing solitariness fed with cheerful and confident thoughts, to embark in a troubled sea of noises and hoarse disputes, put from beholding the bright countenance of truth in the quiet and still air of delightful studies...
Página 281 - Des peuplades de l'Orénoque n'existent plus; il n'est resté de leur dialecte qu'une douzaine de mots prononcés dans la cime des arbres par des perroquets redevenus libres, comme la grive d'Agrippine qui gazouillait des mots grecs sur les balustrades des palais de Rome.
Página 426 - Comme on voit le diable dans les papiers périodiques, on croit que le peuple va se révolter demain ; mais il faut seulement se mettre dans l'esprit qu'en Angleterre, comme ailleurs, le peuple est mécontent des ministres, et que le peuple y écrit ce que l'on pense ailleurs.
Página 249 - I, once gone, to all the world must die : The earth can yield me but a common grave, "When you entombed in men's eyes shall lie. Your monument shall be my gentle verse, Which eyes not yet created shall o'er-read ; And tongues to be your being shall rehearse, When all the breathers of this world are dead ; You still shall live (such virtue hath my pen,) Where breath most breathes, even in the mouths of men.
