Seite 491 - ... look was love, whose voice was the sweetest low song, whose shape was perfect symmetry, health, decision, activity, whose foot as it planted itself on the ground was firm but flexible, and whose motion, whether rapid or slow, was always perfect grace — agile as a nymph, lofty as a queen — now melting, now imperious, now sarcastic — there was no single movement of hers but was beautiful. As he thinks of her, he who writes feels young again, and remembers a paragon.
Seite 487 - We have but to change the point of view, and the greatest action looks mean ; as we turn the perspective-glass, and a giant appears a pigmy.
Seite 113 - Journal, which is a very extraordinary production *, and of a most melancholy truth in all that regards high life in England.

I would however plead in behalf of some few exceptions, which I will mention by and by.
