Página 188 - The budding twigs spread out their fan, To catch the breezy air ; And I must think, do all I can, That there was pleasure there.
Página 160 - Whoever thinks a faultless piece to see, Thinks what ne'er was, nor is, nor e'er shall be, In every work regard the writer's end, Since none can compass more than they intend; And if the means be just, the conduct true, Applause, in spite of trivial faults, is due.
Página 200 - There are in the piece those profound touches of the human heart which I find three or four times in " The Robbers " of Schiller, and often in Shakespeare, but in Wordsworth there are no inequalities.
Página 128 - The thing that hath been is that which shall be ; and that which is done is that which shall be done ; and there is no new thing under the sun.

Página 475 - Call on a business man at business times only, and on business ; transact your business, and go about your business, in order to give him time to finish his business.
Página 517 - Tis enough to make one thoughtful ; but no matter : my die is cast, they may overwhelm me, but I don't think they will outmanoeuvre me. First, because I am not afraid of them, as everybody else seems to be ; and secondly, because if what I hear of their system of manoeuvres be true, I think it a false one as against steady troops. I suspect all the continental armies were more than half beaten before the battle was begun. I, at least, will not be frightened beforehand.
