Page 177 - As to the statement of what a man can or will eat, either as to quality or quantity, I am afraid it would be quite incredible ; in fact, there is nothing in the way of fish or meat, from whatever animal, however putrid or unwholesome, but they will devour with impunity, and the quantity only varies from what they have, to what they can get.

The malady which broke his health and constitution for the rest of his existence, happily impaired neither any of the faculties of his mind, nor the characteristic vigour and activity of his understanding, which enabled him to rise superior to the misfortune. As soon as his strength was sufficiently re-established,...
Page 4 - And fields and marshes wide, Such as nor voice, nor lute, nor wind, nor bird, The soul ever stirred ; Unlike and far sweeter than them all. Sad Aziola! from that moment I Loved thee and thy sad cry.
Page 40 - Things that seemed strange to me. He was a man of gloomy mood, And few his converse sought; But, it was said, in solitude His conscience with him wrought. And there, before his mental eye, Some hideous vision brought There was not one in all the house Who did not fear his frown, Save I, a little careless child, Who gamboled up and down, And often peeped into his room, And plucked him by the gown. I was an orphan and alone, — My father was his brother, And...
