Stran 76 - Death closes all: but something ere the end, Some work of noble note, may yet be done, Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.
Stran 41 - Yet did I never breathe its pure serene Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold: Then felt I like some watcher of the skies When a new planet swims into his ken; Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes He stared at the Pacific — and all his men Looked at each other with a wild surmise — Silent, upon a peak in Darien.
Stran 224 - ... visited. Extravagant as those tales were, they gave rise to an opinion, that a region abounding with gold, distinguished by the name of El Dorado, and a community of Amazons, were to be found in this part of the New World ; and such is the propensity of mankind to believe what is wonderful, that it has been slowly BOOK VI.
Stran 250 - But the armour of the conspirators protected them, while every thrust they made took effect. Alcantara fell dead at his brother's feet ; his other defenders were mortally wounded. The governor, so weary...

Stran 217 - The appalling sounds which they had heard for the distance of six leagues were rendered yet more oppressive to the spirits by the gloomy stillness of the surrounding forests. The rude warriors were filled with sentiments of awe. Not a bark dimpled the waters ; no living thing was to be seen but the wild tenants of the wilderness, the unwieldy boa, and the loathsome alligator basking on the borders of the stream.

Stran 43 - He saw the mountain's fair blue height Whence golden waters flow; Then with his men he scaled the crags, Three hundred years ago. He led them up through tangled brakes, The rivulet's sliding bed, And through the storm of poisoned darts From many an ambush shed. He gained the turret crag — alone — And wept! to see below, An ocean, boundless and unknown, Three hundred years ago. And while he raised upon that height The banner of his lord, The mighty purpose grasped him still, As still he grasped...
Stran 249 - Francisco de Chaves to make fast the door. But that officer, who did not retain so much presence of mind as to obey this prudent order, running to the top of the stair-case, wildly asked the conspirators what they meant, and whither they were going P Instead of answering, they stabbed him to the heart, and burst into the hall.
Stran 42 - ... thoughts which the same action will continue to present and call up in the minds of others to the end, it may be, of all time. And so a remarkable event may go on acquiring more and more significance. In this case, our knowledge that the Pacific, which Vasco Nunez then beheld, occupies more than...
