Stran 45 - Words are like leaves; and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.
Stran 60 - I cannot help venturing to disoblige them for their service, by telling them, that the utmost of a woman's character is contained in domestic life ; she is blameable or praise-worthy according as her carriage affects the house of her father, or her husband. All she has to do in this world, is contained within the duties of a daughter, a sister, a wife, and a mother.
Stran 74 - Tis granted, and no plainer truth appears, Our most important are our earliest years. The mind impressible and soft, with ease Imbibes and copies what she hears and sees, And through life's labyrinth holds fast the clue That education gives her, false or true.
Stran 200 - ... in the virtuous a disapprobation of the wicked; he carries his persons indifferently through right and wrong, and at the close dismisses them without further care, and leaves their examples to operate by chance. This fault the barbarity of his age cannot extenuate ; for it is always a writer's duty to make the world better, and justice is a virtue independent on time or place.
Stran 36 - WHEN Learning's triumph o'er her barbarous foes First rear'd the stage, immortal Shakspeare rose; Each change of many-colour'd life he drew, Exhausted worlds, and then imagined new : Existence saw him spurn her bounded reign, And panting Time toil'd after him in vain.

Stran 153 - Sam Ervin President Bush has demonstrated these attributes! ;-) Bush, Laura - First Lady "How goodness heightens beauty!" Hannah Mare "There are no better cosmetics than a severe temperance and purity, modesty and humility, a gracious temper and calmness of spirit; and there is no true beauty without the signatures of these graces in the very countenance.
Stran 126 - And strike to dust th' imperial powers of Troy ; Steel could the works of mortal pride confound, And hew triumphal arches to the ground. What wonder then, fair nymph ! thy hairs should feel The conquering force of unresisted steel ? CANTO IV.
Stran 114 - Behold the picture! Is it like ? Like whom ? The things that mount the rostrum with a skip, And then skip down again ; pronounce a text ; Cry — hem ; and reading what they never wrote Just fifteen minutes, huddle up their work, And with a well-bred whisper close the scene...
Stran 160 - The grand transition, that there lives and works A soul in all things, and that soul is God.
