Pagina 355 - Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deform'd, unfinish'd, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them; Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace, Have no delight to pass away the time, Unless to spy my shadow in the sun And descant on mine own deformity: And therefore, since I cannot prove a lover. To entertain these fair well-spoken days, I am determined to prove a villain And hate the idle...
Pagina 354 - For that I am some twelve or fourteen moonshines Lag of a brother? Why bastard? Wherefore base? When my dimensions are as well compact, My mind as generous, and my shape as true, As honest madam's issue? Why brand they us With base? with baseness? bastardy? base, base?
Pagina 354 - But I, that am not shap'd for sportive tricks, Nor made to court an amorous looking-glass; I, that am rudely stamp'd, and want love's majesty, To strut before a wanton ambling nymph; I, that am curtail'd of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling Nature, Deform'd, unfinish'd, sent before my time Into this breathing world scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them...

And, if each system in gradation roll Alike essential to th' amazing whole, The least confusion but in one, not all That system only, but the whole must fall.
Pagina 120 - So man, who here seems principal alone, Perhaps acts second to some sphere unknown, Touches some wheel, or verges to some goal; 'Tis but a part we see, and not a whole.
Pagina 29 - J'ai pris sans Votre permission avec moi, ce que Vous ne m'aviez prêté qu'en cachette. J'ai abusé de Votre confiance; j'en tombe d'accord. Mais est-ce ma faute, si contre ma curiosité ma bonne foi n'est pas la plus forte?
Pagina 85 - Better for us, perhaps, it might appear, Were there all harmony, all virtue here; That never air or ocean felt the wind; That never passion discomposed the mind. But all subsists by elemental strife; And passions are the elements of life.
Pagina 29 - C'est un bon mot que je viens de dire : trouvez-le admirable, je Vous prie ; il n'est pas de moi.
Pagina 29 - Je vous l'aurais même renvoyé sans votre lettre, qui est la plus singulière du monde. Vous m'y donnez des vues, que je n'ai pas. Vous vous imaginez, que je m'étais mis à traduire un livre, dont mr Henning a annoncé, il ya longtemps, la traduction, comme étant déjà sous presse.
