Page 66 - True love in this differs from gold and clay, That to divide is not to take away.
Page 69 - We two will rise, and sit, and walk together Under the roof of blue Ionian weather, And wander in the meadows, or ascend The mossy mountains, where the blue heavens bend With lightest winds, to touch their paramour ; Or linger, where the pebble-paven shore, Under the quick faint kisses of the sea Trembles and sparkles as with ecstasy...
Page 36 - The seasons' difference ; as, the icy fang, And churlish chiding of the winter's wind ; Which when it bites and blows upon my body, Even till I shrink with cold, I smile, and say, — This is no flattery : these are counsellors, That feelingly persuade me what I am.
Page 215 - JE ne suis pas de ceux qui disent : « Ce n'est rien : C'eSt une femme qui se noie. » Je dis que c'est beaucoup; et ce sexe vaut bien Que nous le regrettions, puisqu'il fait notre joie.
Page 249 - How oft do they with golden pinions cleave The flitting skies like flying pursuivant, Against foul fiends to aid us militant!

Page 235 - But the Sensitive Plant, which could give small fruit Of the love which it felt from the leaf to the root. Received more than all; it loved more than ever. Where none wanted but it, could belong to the giver...
Page 144 - À prix de faux clins d'yeux et d'élans affectés; Ces gens, dis-je, qu'on voit, d'une ardeur non commune...
Page 150 - And that which should accompany old age, As honour, love, obedience, troops of friends, I must not look to have ; but, in their stead, Curses, not loud but deep, mouth-honour, breath, Which the poor heart would fain deny, and dare not.
