Stran 48 - I have suffered hunger for the Son of the Virgin. I have been fostered in the land of the Deity, I have been teacher to all intelligences, I am able to instruct the whole universe. I shall be until the day of doom on the face of the earth ; And it is not known whether my body is flesh or fish.

Stran 11 - The three primary requisites of poetical Genius; an eye that can see Nature, a heart that can feel Nature, and a resolution that dares follow nature.
Stran 8 - ... as pupils, who treat them with the greatest respect. For it is they who decide in all controversies, whether public or private, and they judge all causes, whether of murder, of a disputed inheritance, or of the boundaries of estates. They assign both rewards and punishments, and whoever refuses to abide by their sentence, whether he be in a public or private station, is forbidden to be present at the sacrifices to the gods. , This is in fact...
Stran 139 - ... Aberdaron I took boat for Bardsey Island, which lies about three leagues to the west. The mariners seemed tinctured with the piety of the place ; for they had not rowed far, but they made a full stop, pulled off their hats, and offered up a short prayer. After doubling a headland, the island appears full in view ; we passed under the lofty mountain which forms one side ; after doubling the further end, we put into a little sandy creek, bounded by low rocks, as is the whole level part On landing,...
Stran 47 - Primary chief bard am I to Elphin, And my original country is the region of the summer stars ; Idno and Heinin called me Merddin, At length every king will call me Taliesin.
