Seite 240 - Qu'allez-vous faire Si loin d'ici ? Voyez-vous pas que la nuit est profonde, Et que le monde N'est que souci? Vous qui croyez qu'une amour délaissée De la pensée S'enfuit ainsi, Hélas ! hélas ! chercheurs de renommée, Votre fumée S'envole aussi. Beau chevalier qui partez pour la guerre...
Seite 139 - Tis life, whereof our nerves are scant, Oh life, not death, for which we pant; More life, and fuller, that I want.
Seite 91 - M. de Fontvieille made a grimace. This was not exactly the doctrine he had intended to inculcate, and he felt that he was getting upon dangerous ground. " Mon Dieu ! " he said, " that depends a little. In matters of this kind it is impossible to lay down a general rule which will fit all cases. My object in relating my own experience to you was to show that it is a good thing to have loved—even in vain." " No doubt,
Seite 47 - Pardon me, madame, but I must differ from you entirely, so far as Mademoiselle de Mersac and the Duchess are concerned. I never met two ladies of more perfectly refined and amiable manners. As for Madame de Vaublanc, she is a little brusque ; but I find that, as I grow older, I value people more for what they are than for what they seem to be, and " '- Enough ! enough ! " cried Madame de Tremonville, throwing up her hands with a gesture of simulated terror. " One docs not go to a ball to hear a sermon....
Seite 38 - ... compliment,' concluded Barrington, who in truth loved bright colours and showy apparel, and never by any chance missed the Yeomanry ball which closed his short annual period of training. And so he struggled into his nether garments with a sigh of mingled resignation and contentment. A few doors off, M. de Saint-Luc, who had worn a gay jacket long enough to have grown tired of it, was arraying himself in the plainest of plain clothes, in preparation for the same festivity as that to which Barrington...
Seite 14 - ... Caroline, or any lady, might not hear." " Now just look you here, John Erskine," said Tinto, projecting his big eyes, " I thought you were he — that is the truth. She told me there was somebody. I thought it was you, and I was determined to be at the bottom of it. Now here's the man, beyond a doubt, and you know it as well as I do.
Seite 132 - War is not yet declared," said de Monceaux ; " and I confess that I am a little of M. de Marcy's opinion. I think the Government will be satisfied with having given King William a slap in the face, and will go no further. I believe we are a match for the Prussians ; but they are good soldiers, and Berlin is a long way from Paris, and we have no allies.
Seite 90 - M. de Fontvieille shrugged his shoulders. "Obliged! — no; but it seemed expedient. When I gave up my old mode of life and my old companions I was very dull. After a time I thought the best thing I could do would be to ally myself to a good, sensible woman who could contribute her share towards the payment of the household expenses ; and I assure you I never regretted having taken the step. Marriage is an admirable institution, but a trifle prosaic : the essential thing is that the husband and wife...
Seite 138 - What was the cause assigned 1 — and so forth. When M. de Tremonville could get a bearing, he satisfied the impatience of his questioners to the best of his ability. The Governor-General had received a telegram announcing that the King of Prussia having refused to give audience to M. Benedetti, diplomatic relations between the two countries had been broken off, and that an aide-de-camp was now on his way to Berlin with the formal declaration of war. The Chasseurs d'Afrique were under orders to proceed...
Seite 106 - Leon — and so also does mademoiselle herself — how little I have ventured to expect the happiness that has come to me. All I can say is that I will do my best to show myself worthy of it. It would be ridiculous presumption on my part to assume that mademoiselle has any such feeling for me as I have for her — indeed I know that it is not so. But this I can promise to her, and to you all, that if she ever comes to repent of her choice, it shall not be through any fault of mine.
