Side 226 - ... there's a divinity that shapes our ends, rough hew them how we will.
Side 518 - Who, though so noble, share in the world's toil, And, though so task'd, keep free from dust and soil ! I will not say that your mild deeps retain A tinge, it may be, of their silent pain Who have long'd deeply once, and long'd in vain — But I will rather say that you remain A world above man's head, to let him see How boundless might his soul's horizons be, How vast, yet of what clear transparency ! How it were good to abide there, and breathe free ; How fair a lot to fill Is left to each man still...
Side 517 - But now I only hear Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar, Retreating, to the breath Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear And naked shingles of the world.
Side 411 - Adorable dreamer, whose heart has been so romantic ! who hast given thyself so prodigally, given thyself to sides and to heroes not mine, only never to the Philistines! home of lost causes, and forsaken beliefs, and unpopular' names, and impossible loyalties...

Side 107 - His mind was great and powerful, without being of the very * first order; his penetration strong, though not so acute as that of a Newton, Bacon, or Locke, and as far as he saw, no judgment was ever sounder. It was slow in operation, being little aided by invention or imagination, but sure in conclusion.
Side 274 - ... the power of conduct, the power of intellect and knowledge, the power of beauty, and the power of social life and manners...
Side 6 - gainst that season comes Wherein our Saviour's birth is celebrated, The bird of dawning singeth all night long : And then, they say, no spirit dare stir abroad ; The nights are wholesome ; then no planets strike, No fairy takes, nor witch hath power to charm, So hallow'd and so gracious is the time.
Side 6 - But, look, the morn in russet mantle clad, Walks o'er the dew of yon high eastern hill.
