Stran 101 - Wisely regardful of the embroiling sky, In joyless fields and thorny thickets leaves His shivering mates, and pays to trusted man His annual visit. Half afraid, he first Against the window beats ; then, brisk, alights On the warm hearth ; then, hopping o'er the floor, Eyes all the smiling family askance, And pecks, and starts, and wonders where he is ; Till more familiar grown, the table-crumbs Attract his slender feet.
Stran 62 - There is so much good in the worst of us and so much bad in the best of us that it hardly behooves any of us to talk about the rest of us.
Stran 80 - These to their softened hearts should bear The thought of what has been, And speak of one who cannot share The gladness of the scene ; Whose part in all the pomp that fills The circuit of the summer hills, Is — that his grave is green ! And deeply would their hearts rejoice To hear again his living voice.
Stran 240 - Knipp took us all in. and brought to us Nelly, a most pretty woman, who acted the great part of 'Coelia' to-day very fine, and did it pretty well; I kissed her. and so did my wife, and a mighty pretty soul she is.
Stran 160 - Saviour comes ! by ancient bards foretold ! Hear Him, ye deaf; and all ye blind, behold ! He from thick films shall purge the visual ray, And on the sightless eyeball pour the day: 'Tis he the obstructed paths of sound shall clear, And bid new music charm th' unfolding ear: The dumb shall sing, the lame his crutch forego, And leap exulting, like the bounding roe.
Stran 59 - As a jewel of gold in a swine's snout, so is a, fair woman which is without discretion.
Stran 120 - ... some idea of the extravagance with which this, as well as other dishes, was prepared for the gorgeous revels of the olden times : Men may talk of country Christmasses, Their thirty pound butter'd eggs, their pies of carps...
Stran 220 - Then Abner Dean of Angel's raised a point of order — when A chunk of old red sandstone took him in the abdomen, And he smiled a kind of sickly smile, and curled up on the floor, And the subsequent proceedings interested him no more.
Stran 355 - TAFFY was a Welshman, Taffy was a thief; Taffy came to my house and stole a piece of beef: I went to Taffy's house, Taffy was not at home ; Taffy came to my house and stole a marrowbone.
Stran 216 - He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him. 15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike. 16 Whosoevei* hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, which bewrayeth itself.
