Pagina 15 - O'er other creatures. Yet when I approach Her loveliness, so absolute she seems And in herself complete, so well to know Her own, that what she wills to do or say, Seems wisest, virtuousest, discreetest, best.
Pagina 456 - ... thou knowest, All my madness none can know ; All my hopes, where'er thou goest, Wither, yet with thee they go.

Pagina 93 - I declare and certify to be my last will and testament, signed and sealed in the presence of witnesses.
Pagina 532 - So much inherent ambition in a character, without any other vice, and full of the milk of human kindness, though obnoxious to temptation, yet would have great struggles before it yielded, and as violent fits of subsequent remorse. If the mind is to be medicated by the operations of pity and terror, surely no means are so well adapted to that end, as a strong and lively representation of the agonizing struggles that precede, and the terrible horrors that follow wicked actions.
