الصفحة 48 - Yet his real power is not shown in the splendour of particular passages, but by the progress of his fable and the tenor of his dialogue ; and he that tries to recommend him by select quotations will succeed like the pedant in Hierocles, who, when he offered his house to sale, carried a brick in his pocket as a specimen.
الصفحة 135 - I do declare that I do not believe that the Pope of Rome or any other foreign prince, prelate, person, state, or potentate, hath or ought to have any temporal or civil jurisdiction, power, superiority, or pre-eminence, directly or indirectly, within this realm.
الصفحة 95 - The names of the months and of the days of the week are usually •written with a small initial.
الصفحة 175 - I have made him take pleasure in the scenes in which I took pleasure, and entertain sentiments similar to those, of which, even in my early youth, I had repeated experience. The scenery of a mountainous country, the ocean, the sky, thoughtfulness and retirement, and sometimes melancholy objects and ideas, had charms in my eyes, even when I was a schoolboy ; and at a time when I was so far from being able to express, that I did not understand my own feelings, or perceive the tendency of such pursuits...

Perhaps this was no loss to me. Even the organ of Durham Cathedral was too much for my feelings; for it brought too powerfully to my remembrance another organ, much smaller indeed, but more interesting, which I can never hear any more."* * This alludes to his eldest son's performance on that instrument.
الصفحة 94 - It is altogether absurd to consider you as exclusively a plural pronoun in the modern English language. It may be a matter of history, that it was originally used as a plural only : and it may be a matter of theory, that it was first applied to individuals on a principle of flattery : but the fact is, that it is now our second person singular. When applied to an individual, it never excites any idea either of plurality or of adulation : but excites, precisely and exactly, the idea, that was excited...
الصفحة 176 - My other poems, I said, were incorrect, being but juvenile pieces, and of little consequence, even in my own opinion. We had much conversation on moral subjects : from which both their Majesties let it appear that they were warm friends to Christianity ; and so little inclined to infidelity, that they could hardly believe that any thinking man could really be an atheist, unless he could bring himself to believe that he made himself; a thought which pleased the King exceedingly, and he repeated it...
