Seite 315 - Come on, sir ; here's the place : — stand still. — How fearful And dizzy 'tis, to cast one's eyes so low ! The crows and choughs that wing the midway air Show scarce so gross as beetles : half way down Hangs one that gathers samphire, — dreadful trade ! Methinks he seems no bigger than his head : The fishermen, that walk upon the beach, Appear like mice ; and yond...
Seite 184 - Why, I, in this weak piping time of peace, . Have no delight to pass away the time, Unless to spy my shadow in the sun And descant on mine own deformity...
Seite 181 - Thou, Nature, art my goddess ; to thy law My services are bound. Wherefore should I Stand in the plague of custom, and permit The curiosity of nations to deprive me, For that I am some twelve or fourteen moonshines Lag of a brother...
Seite 184 - I, that am curtail'd of this fair proportion, Cheated of feature by dissembling nature, Deform'd, unfinish'd, sent before my time Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, And that so lamely and unfashionable That dogs bark at me as I halt by them...
Seite 181 - Thou, nature, art my goddess ; to thy law My services are bound : Wherefore should I Stand in the plague of custom ; and permit The curiosity of nations to deprive me, For that I am some twelve or fourteen moon-shines Lag of a brother? Why bastard? wherefore base? When my dimensions are as well compact, My mind as generous, and my shape as true, As honest madam's issue? Why brand they us With base?
Seite 297 - For neither man nor angel can discern Hypocrisy, the only evil that walks Invisible, except to God alone, By his permissive will, through heaven and earth : And oft, though Wisdom wake, Suspicion sleeps At Wisdom's gate, and to Simplicity Resigns her charge, while Goodness thinks no ill Where no ill seems...
Seite 159 - Di persona era tanto ben formata, quanto me' finger san pittori industri ; con bionda chioma lunga et annodata: oro non è che più risplenda e lustri. Spargeasi per la guancia delicata misto color di rose e di ligustri; di terso avorio era la fronte lieta, che lo spazio finia con giusta meta. 8 Sotto duo negri e sottilissimi archi son duo negri occhi, anzi duo chiari soli, pietosi a riguardare, a mover parchi; intorno cui par ch'Amor scherzi e voli, e ch...
Seite 203 - Nee multo plurium fama est, quorundam claritati in operibus eximiis obstante numero artificum, quoniam nee unus occupat gloriam, nee plures pariter nuncupari possunt, sicut in Laocoonte, qui est in Titi Imperatoris domo, opus omnibus et picturae et statuariae artis praeponendum.
Seite 162 - Bianca nieve è il bel collo, e '1 petto latte; il collo è tondo, il petto colmo e largo: due pome acerbe, e pur d'avorio fatte, vengono e van come onda al primo margo, quando piacevole aura il mar combatte.
Seite 41 - Where never human foot had mark'd the shore, These ruffians left me — Yet believe me, Areas, Such is the rooted love we bear mankind, All ruffians as they were, I never heard A sound so dismal as their parting oars.
