Seite 59 - English without any periphrasis, — and too oft without much distinction of either person, time, or place; — so that when mention was made of a pitiful or an ungenerous proceeding, he never gave himself a moment's time to reflect who was the Hero of the piece, what his station, or how far he had power to hurt him hereafter; but if it was a dirty action, — without more ado, — The man was a dirty fellow...

Seite 10 - ... right glad I am that I have begun the history of myself in the way I have done ; and that I am able to go on, tracing every thing in it, as Horace says, ab ovo.
Seite 56 - ... poor Yorick carried not one ounce of ballast; he was utterly unpractised in the world; and, at the age of twenty-six, knew just about as well how to steer his course in it, as a romping, unsuspicious girl of thirteen: So that upon his first setting out, the brisk gale of his spirits, as you will imagine, ran him foul ten times in a day of somebody's tackling...
