Stran 215 - Farewell, great painter of mankind ! Who reach'd the noblest point of art, Whose pictured morals charm the mind, And through the eye correct the heart. If Genius fire thee, reader, stay, If nature touch thee, drop a tear, If neither move thee — turn away — For Hogarth's honour'd dust lies here.
Stran 15 - In men whom men condemn as ill I find so much of goodness still; In men whom men pronounce divine I find so much of sin and blot I hesitate to draw the line Between the two, where God has not.
Stran 160 - tis easy, all of it ! No sketches first, no studies, that's long past: I do what many dream of, all their lives, - Dream ? strive to do, and agonize to do, And fail in doing.

A simple print : — the graceful flow Of boyhood's soft and wavy hair, LUCY IIOJPER.

Stran 187 - ... manner, that the Magnifico was utterly amazed. Lorenzo, furthermore, perceived that the youth had departed to a certain extent from the original, having opened the mouth according to his own fancy, so that the tongue and all the teeth were in view; he then remarked in a jesting manner to the boy, "Thou shouldst have remembered that old folks never retain all their teeth ; some of them are always wanting.
Stran 93 - There's a far bell ringing At the setting of the sun, And a phantom voice is singing Of the great days done. There's a far bell ringing, And a phantom voice is singing Of renown for ever clinging To the great days done.
Stran 32 - O new-born denizen Of life's great city! on thy head The glory of the morn is shed, Like a celestial benison! Here at the portal thou dost stand, And with thy little hand Thou openest the mysterious gate Into the future's undiscovered land.
