Page 209 - And all our dainty terms for fratricide; Terms which we trundle smoothly o'er our tongues Like mere abstractions, empty sounds to which We join no feeling and attach no form! As if the soldier died without a wound; As if the fibres of this godlike frame Were gored without a pang...

But neither heat, nor frost, nor thunder, Shall wholly do away, I ween, The marks of that which once hath been.
Page 98 - I lead in the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance ; And I will fill their treasures.
Page 156 - Mark you this, Bassanio, The devil can cite scripture for his purpose. An evil soul producing holy witness Is like a villain with a smiling cheek ; A goodly apple rotten at the heart ; O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath ! Shy.
Page 408 - Inherited, not purchased, nor our own. Fame, honour, beauty, state, train, blood, and birth, Are but the fading blossoms of the earth.
