الصفحة 285 - Call upon me in the day of trouble, and I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.
الصفحة 129 - Within that awful volume lies The mystery of mysteries! Happiest they of human race, To whom God has granted grace To read, to fear, to hope, to pray, To lift the latch, and force the way; And better had they ne'er been born, Who read, to doubt, or read to scorn.
الصفحة 42 - This potent commander of the elements — this abridger of time and space — this magician, whose cloudy machinery has produced a change on the world, the effects of which, extraordinary as they are, are perhaps only now beginning to be felt — was not only the most profound man of science, the most successful combiner of powers and calculator of numbers, as adapted to practical purposes — was not only one of the most generally well informed, but one of the best and kindest of human beings.
الصفحة 43 - I have mentioned of Northern literati, men not less tenacious, generally speaking, of their own fame and their own opinions than the national regiments are supposed to be jealous of the high character which they have won upon service.

Now, when I meet her in the presence anon, I will come to her, and say, Sweet Honour, I have hitherto contented my sense with the lilies of your hand, but now I will taste the roses of your lip ; and withal, kiss her : to which she cannot but blushing answer, Nay, now you are too ambitious.
الصفحة 238 - Come from the hills where your hirsels are grazing, Come from the glen of the buck and the roe; Come to the crag where the beacon is blazing, Come with the buckler, the lance, and the bow. Trumpets are sounding, War-steeds...
الصفحة 8 - Fouque composed in German, one of the most successful productions of his fertile brain, where a beautiful and even afflicting effect is produced by the introduction of a waternymph, who loses the privilege of immortality by consenting to become accessible to human feelings, and uniting her lot with that of a mortal, who treats her with ingratitude. In imitation of an example so successful, the White Lady of Avenel was introduced into the story.
