Seite 41 - When thou hadst overcome the sharpness of death, thou didst open the kingdom of heaven to all believers. Thou sittest at the right hand of God in the glory of the Father. We believe that thou shalt come to be our Judge.
Seite 3 - Tis chiefly taste, or blunt or gross or fine, Makes life insipid, bestial, or divine. Better be born with taste to little rent, Than the dull monarch of a continent.

Seite 5 - These the fine frame with charming horrors chill, And give the nerves delightfully to thrill. But of all taste the noblest and the best, The first enjoyment of the generous breast, Is to behold in man's obnoxious state Scenes of content, and happy turns of fate. Fair views of nature, shining works of art, Amuse the fancy : but those touch the heart. Chiefly for this proud epic song delights, For this some riot on th
Seite 2 - Goths, that stare astonished at their verse; To the rank tribes submit their virgin lays : So gross, so bestial, is the lust of praise! I to sound judges from the mob appeal, And write to those who most my subject feel. Eumenes, these dry moral lines I trust With you, whom naught that 's moral can disgust.

Fair views of nature, shining works of art, Amuse the fancy : but those touch the heart. Chiefly for this proud epic song delights, For this some riot on th1 Arabian Nights. Each case is ours : and for the human mind 'Tis monstrous not to feel for all mankind.
Seite 1 - KIND to my frailties still, Eumenes, hear ; Once more I try the patience of your ear. Not oft I sing: the happier for the town, So stunn'd already they're quite stupid grown With monthly, daily — charming; things I own.
