Página 260 - Why, look you now, how unworthy a thing you make of me. You would play upon me ; you would seem to know my stops ; you would pluck out the heart of my mystery ; you would sound me from my lowest note to the top of my compass : and there is much music, excellent voice, in this little organ ; yet cannot you make it speak.

Página 291 - O SACRED hunger of ambitious mindes, And impotent desire of men to raine ! Whom neither dread of God, that devils bindes, Nor lawes of men, that common- weales containe, Nor bands of nature, that wilde beastes restraine, Can keepe from outrage and from doing wrong, Where they may hope a kingdome to obtaine : No faith so firme, no trust can be so strong, No love so lasting then, that may enduren long.
Página 97 - Oh, great God ! Why, why, in wisdom and in grace's name, And in the name of saints and saintly thoughts, Of mothers, and of sisters, and chaste wives, And angel woman-faces we have seen, And angel woman-spirits we have guessed, And innocent sweet children, and pure love, Why did I ever one brief moment's space But parley with this filthy Belial? Was it the fear Of being behind the world, which is the wicked ? SCENE III.
Página 225 - I may scrape together a few kreutzers to buy you a share in a business on your own account. That is, if you are steady and dutiful, and give satisfaction. So !

But he felt some latent, uneasy doubt of Otto's acquiescence, and furtively watched him out of the corner of his eye.
Página 121 - The horse slacked an instant in a " soft " spot — a perfect bed of mud and water at the foot of a rise in the road ; and listening, Hogan could hear the swift running murmur of the stream behind the tall sedges that hid it from his sight. On a level almost with the top of the bank, and far below that of the road, he could now trace a row of wretched cabins. A faint gleam of light in one or two showed that the inmates had not all as yet gone to bed. But most of them were black and silent. " Are...
Página 158 - A rickety painted table and half a dozen old chairs, in a fearful state of dilapidation, composed the whole furniture, save a broken sofa, one end of which was supported in a hole which had been made in the wall of the room apparently for that especial purpose, and which seemed the chosen home of a brace of fine pointers and a clever-looking terrier — all three of which were curled up on it. Daniel O'Connell, Robert Emmet in his memorable Hessian boots, and other worthies, graced the walls of the...
Página 123 - All down the street the people sprang to their doors, and a crowd of spectators thronged, curious and open-eyed, out of the bye-streets and lanes. Every one was on the alert. But Shea whipped up his horse, and the sight-seers were disappointed. As they passed the hotel, he stooped forward and called to a man, — " Hurry them on, Jack Father Corkran's above, and he waits for no one." He pointed backwards with his whip, indicating the other cars, which he had distanced by a long stretch. Hogan pricked...
Página 242 - Listen, then," said Miss Eily Rafferty; " here's a wrinkle for you, Mary Doyle. Did any of ye hear this story ? Mother Paul told it to mamma last day she was visiting at St. Swithin's. There was a young lady, a great friend of her own (so now it must be true), livin' on the Laracore Road, just out that way a bit towards Green Lanes ; and she was most anxious to get settled. Do ye mind how a nun never says ' get married,' — it is always settled they call it — ho ! ho ! " and Miss Eily giggled...
Página 120 - said Killeen, " Home Rule will settle everything for us; won't it, Mr. Hogan? " Hogan and Dicky both laughed heartily. Meantime the car dashed on fast, splashing through water and over stones without ever slackening. No sign of light showed as yet, and not a sound, save the distant bark of a cur dog, or the ghostly rustle of the bare branches overhead, broke the stillness around them.
