Page 316 - And his mercy is on them that fear him From generation to generation. He hath shewed strength with his arm ; He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. He hath put down the mighty from their seats, And exalted them of low degree. He hath filled the hungry with good things ; And the rich he hath sent empty away.
Page 720 - ... bring all Heaven before mine eyes. And may at last my weary age Find out the peaceful hermitage, The hairy gown and mossy cell, Where I may sit and rightly spell Of every star that heaven doth shew, And every herb that sips the dew, Till old experience do attain To something like prophetic strain. These pleasures, Melancholy, give; And I with thee will choose to live.
Page 707 - Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer as a Christian is?

Page 720 - In letting fall the curtain of repose On bird and beast, the other charged for man With sweet oblivion of the cares of day...
Page 179 - Maître de Philosophie. La voix U se forme en rapprochant les dents sans les joindre entièrement, et allongeant les deux lèvres en dehors, les approchant aussi l'une de l'autre, sans les joindre tout à fait: U. M. Jourdain. U, U. Il n'ya rien de plus véritable : U. Le Maître de Philosophie.
Page 707 - AH ! who can tell how hard it is to climb The steep where Fame's proud temple shines afar; Ah! who can tell how many a soul sublime Has felt the influence of malignant star...
Page 26 - That no man is the lord of any thing, (Though in and of him there be much consisting,) Till he communicate his parts to others...
Page 30 - A thing slipp'd idly from me. Our poesy is as a gum, which oozes • From whence 'tis nourished : The fire i' the flint Shows not till it be struck ; our gentle flame Provokes itself, and, like the current, flies Each bound it chafes.
