Pagina 275 - Had fed the feeling of their masters' thoughts, And every sweetness that inspir'd their hearts, Their minds, and muses on admired themes; If all the heavenly quintessence they still From their immortal flowers of poesy, Wherein, as in a mirror, we perceive The highest reaches of a human wit; If these had made one poem's period, And all combin'd in beauty's worthiness, Yet should there hover in their restless heads One thought, one grace, one wonder, at the least, Which into words no virtue can digest.
Pagina 263 - He was a scholar, and a ripe, and good one; Exceeding wise, fair spoken, and persuading : Lofty, and sour, to them that lov'd him not; But, to those men that sought him, sweet as summer.
Pagina 275 - If all the pens that ever poets held Had fed the feeling of their masters' thoughts. And every sweetness that inspired their hearts.

Pagina 25 - I was so delighted with the name that in my last Oxford year I wrote, in three days, three acts of a comedy, after (a long way after) the later manner of Fletcher, under that title; but I shall take good care that this one never sees the light!
Pagina 29 - Tragedy in my tutor's Dodsley at Eton (which he was actually kind enough to entrust to such a small boy) with infinite edification, and such profit that to the utter neglect of my school work, to say nothing of my duties as a fag, I forthwith wrote a tragedy of which I have utterly forgotten the very name (having had the sense at sixteen to burn it together with every other scrap of MS.

But I will not conceal from you that I have no confidence in those who at the universities regulate studies, degrees, and honours. To regulate these matters great experience of the world, steadiness, simplicity, breadth of view, are desirable.
Pagina 75 - ... continue to show — and this though personally many of them may be very able and distinguished men. I fear, therefore, that while you are seeking an object altogether good — the completing of the old and great degree in Arts — you may obtain something which will not only not be that, but will be a positive hindrance to it.
Pagina 44 - Sleepe after toyle, port after stormie seas, Ease after warre, death after life, does greatly please.
