Página 333 - There is, sir, but one stage more, which, though turbulent and troublesome, is yet a very short one. Consider, it will soon carry you a great way; it will carry you from earth to heaven ; and there you shall find, to your great joy, the prize to which you hasten, a crown of glory.
Página 271 - Considering what a gracious Prince was next. Have I, in silent wonder, seen such things As pride in slaves, and avarice in kings; no And at a peer, or peeress, shall I fret, Who starves a sister, or forswears a debt?
Página 121 - O Printing! how hast thou disturbed the peace of mankind! That lead, when moulded into bullets, is not so mortal, as when founded into letters. There was a mistake, sure, in the story of Cadmus; and the serpent's teeth, which he sowed, were nothing else but the letters which he invented.

But, mark what I say, you must not be a king so long as your brothers Charles and James do live. For they will cut off your brothers' heads, when they can catch them, and cut off thy head too at the last. And therefore, I charge you, do not be made a king by them.

He will leave nothing behind him to justify the opinion of his friends to the world ; yet many of his scattered poems are such, that a man of feeling will see that the author was capable of executing the greatest works.
Página 332 - Herbert, one of his attendants, he bade him employ more than usual care in dressing him, and preparing him for so great and joyful a solemnity. Bishop Juxon, a man endowed with the same mild and steady virtues by which the king himself was so much distinguished, assisted him in his devotions, and paid the last melancholy duties to his friend and sovereign.
Página 258 - Then came those days when the most barbarous of all codes was administered by the most barbarous of all tribunals ; when no man could greet his neighbours, or say his prayers, or dress his hair, without danger of committing a capital crime ; when spies lurked in every corner ; when the guillotine was long and hard at work every morning ; when the jails were filled as close as the hold of a slave-ship ; when the gutters ran foaming with blood into the Seine...
