Stran 292 - Words are like leaves; and where they most abound, Much fruit of sense beneath is rarely found.
Stran 268 - Lurk'd in her hand, and mourn'd his captive Queen: He springs to vengeance with an eager pace, And falls like thunder on the prostrate Ace. The nymph exulting fills with shouts the sky; The walls, the woods, and long canals reply. Oh thoughtless mortals! ever blind to fate, Too soon dejected, and too soon elate.
Stran 281 - And she to-morrow weds; the sportive gale Unties her zone; she bursts the verdant veil; Through all her sweets the rifling lover flies, And as he breathes, her glowing fires arise. Let those love now, who never loved before ; And those who always loved, now love the more.
Stran 101 - None without hope e'er lov'd the brightest fair : But Love can hope, where Reason would despair.

He shows symptoms of feeling for his horses, and his mother, and his coachman, and his country. I do believe he would fight for old England, for it is his country, and "he is English...
Stran 269 - Solicitor Babington (by the by, pray tell Rosamond in answer to her question whether there is an honest attorney, that there are no such things as attorneys now in England — they are all turned into solicitors and agents, just as every shop is become a warehouse, and every service a situation...
Stran 209 - Ladyship had several sickly children—children rendered sickly by their mother's overweening and injudicious care. Alarmed successively by every fashionable medical terror of the day, she dosed her children with every specific which was publicly advertised, or privately recommended. No creatures of their age had taken such quantities of Ching's lozenges, Godbold's elixir, or Dixon's antibilious pills.
