Página 88 - First, then, I think it may very reasonably be required of every writer, that he keeps within the bounds of possibility ; and still remembers that what it is not possible for man to perform, it is scarce possible for man to believe he did perform.
Página 308 - I made no doubt but that his designs ' were strictly honourable, as the phrase is ; that is, to ' rob a lady of her fortune by way of marriage.
Página 2 - ... the theatrical stage is nothing more than a representation, or, as Aristotle calls it, an imitation of what really exists; and hence, perhaps, we might fairly pay a very high compliment to those who by their writings or actions have been so capable of imitating life, as to have their pictures in a manner confounded with, or mistaken for, the originals.
