Página 247 - I sometimes hold it half a sin To put in words the grief I feel; For words, like Nature, half reveal And half conceal the Soul within. But, for the unquiet heart and brain, A use in measured language lies; The sad mechanic exercise, Like dull narcotics, numbing pain.
Página 150 - But peace to his spirit, wherever it flies, To act as an angel and mix with the skies...
Página 71 - Knowledge dwells In heads replete with thoughts of other men, Wisdom in minds attentive to their own.
Página 2 - He •walked much, and contemplated ; and he had in the head of his cane a pen and inkhorn, and carried always a note-book in his pocket ; and as soon as a thought darted, he presently entered it into his book, or otherwise might have lost it.

Página 481 - Thus, loved associates, chiefs of elder art, Teachers of wisdom, who could once beguile My tedious hours, and lighten every toil, I now resign you; nor with fainting heart; For pass a few short years, or days, or hours, And happier seasons may their dawn unfold, And all your sacred fellowship restore: When, freed from earth, unlimited its powers, Mind shall with mind direct communion hold, And kindred spirits meet to part no more.
Página 456 - I could not tell whether to lay out my money for books of pleasure, as plays, which my nature was most earnest in; but at last, after seeing Chaucer, Dugdale's History of Paul's, Stow's London, Gesner, History of Trent, besides Shakespeare, Jonson, and Beaumont's plays, I at last chose Dr. Fuller's Worthys, the Cabbala or Collections of Letters of State, and a little book, Delices de Hollande...
