Side 536 - Gone like a star that through the firmament Shot and was lost, in its eccentric course Dazzling, perplexing. Yet thy heart, methinks, Was generous, noble — noble in its scorn Of all things low or little ; nothing there Sordid or servile. If imagined wrongs Pursued thee, urging thee sometimes to do Things long regretted, oft, as many know, None more than I, thy gratitude would build On slight foundations...
Side 533 - Yet if, as holiest men have deemed, there be A land of souls beyond that sable shore, To shame the doctrine of the Sadducee And sophists, madly vain of dubious lore; How sweet it were in concert to adore With those who made our mortal labours light ! To hear each voice we feared to hear no more ! Behold each mighty shade revealed to sight, The Bactrian, Samian sage, and all who taught the right!
Side 537 - Thou art gone ; And he who would assail thee in thy grave, Oh, let him pause ! For who among us all, Tried as thou wert — even from thine earliest years, When wandering, yet unspoilt, a...
Side 470 - With hallow'd ruins ; when the muse's haunt, The marble porch where wisdom wont to talk With SOCRATES or TULLY, hears no more, Save the hoarse jargon of contentious monks, Or female superstition's midnight prayer; When...
Side 536 - He is now at rest ; And praise and blame fall on his ear alike, Now dull in death. Yes; BYRON, thou art gone, Gone like a star that through the firmament Shot and was lost, in its eccentric course Dazzling, perplexing.

Side 538 - Byron in no moment of levity, but contributing his fortune, and hazarding his life, in behalf of a people only endeared to him by their past glories, and as fellow-creatures suffering under the yoke of a heathen oppressor. To have fallen in a crusade for freedom and humanity, as in olden times it would have been an atonement lor the blackest crimes, may in the present be allowed to expiate greater follies than even exaggerated calumny has propagated against Byron.
Side 95 - God is great. I bear witness that there is no God but God. I bear witness that there is no God but God.
Side 536 - We have already said, and we deliberately repeat, that we have no notion that Lord Byron had any mischievous intention in these publications, and readily acquit him of any wish to corrupt the morals, or impair the happiness of his readers. Such a wish, indeed, is in itself altogether inconceivable ; but it is our duty, nevertheless, to say, that much of what he has published appears to us to have this tendency...
Side 138 - They go to the mosques on Fridays, and to the church on Sunday, saying for their excuse, that at the day of judgment they are sure of protection from the true prophet ; but which that is, they are not able to determine in this world.
