Seite 124 - WRITING, when properly managed (as you may be sure I think mine is) is but a different name for conversation. As no one, who knows what he is about in good company, would venture to talk all; so no author, who understands the just boundaries of decorum and good- breeding, would...
Seite 267 - Toby's deportment — what great attention he gave to every word — and as oft as he took his pipe from his mouth, with what wonderful seriousness he contemplated the length of...
Seite 206 - I would go fifty miles on foot, for I have not a horse worth riding on, to kiss the hand of that man whose generous heart will give up the reins of his imagination into his author's hands — be pleased he knows not why, and cares not wherefore.
Seite 14 - Therefore, my dear friend and companion, if you should think me somewhat sparing of my narrative on my first setting out — bear with me — and let me go on and tell my story my own way:— or, if I should seem now and then to trifle upon the road, — or should sometimes put on a fool's cap, with a bell to it, for a moment or two as we pass along, — don't fly off; — but rather courteously give me credit for a little more wisdom than appears upon my outside ; — and, as we jog on, either laugh...
Seite xviii - Yorick had an invincible dislike and opposition in his nature to GRAVITY — not to gravity as such; for where gravity was wanted, he would be the most grave or serious of mortal men for days and weeks together; but he was an enemy to the affectation of it, and declared open war against it, only as it appeared a cloak for ignorance or for folly : and then, whenever it fell in his way, however sheltered and protected, he seldom gave it much quarter.
Seite 199 - May the holy and eternal Virgin Mary, mother of God, curse him. — May St. Michael, the advocate of holy souls, curse him. — May all the angels and archangels, principalities and powers, and all the heavenly armies, curse him." [Our armies swore terribly in Flanders, cried my uncle Toby, — but nothing to this.
Seite 204 - And how did Garrick speak the soliloquy last night? — Oh, against all rule, my Lord, — most ungrammatically! betwixt the substantive and the adjective, which should agree together in number, case and gender, he made a breach thus, — stopping, as if the point wanted settling; and betwixt the nominative case., which your lordship knows should govern the verb, he suspended his voice in the epilogue a dozen times, three seconds and three fifths by a stop-watch, my Lord, each time.
Seite 5 - Being was concerned in it, but that possibly the happy formation and temperature of his body, perhaps his genius and the very cast of his mind; — and, for aught they knew to the contrary, even the fortunes of his whole house might take their turn from the humours...
Seite 197 - Saviour, and of all the celestial virtues, angels, archangels, thrones, dominions, powers, cherubins and seraphins, and of all the holy patriarchs, prophets, and of all the apostles and evangelists, and of the holy innocents, who in the sight of the Holy Lamb, are found worthy to sing the new song of the holy martyrs and holy confessors, and of the holy virgins, and of all the saints, together with the holy and elect of God, May he...
Seite 5 - I WISH either my father or my mother, or indeed both of them, as they were in duty both equally bound to it, had minded what they were about when they begot me...
