343 psl. - If they had swallow'd poison, 'twould appear By external swelling : but she looks like sleep, As she would catch another Antony In her strong toil of grace.
528 psl. - La conduite de Dieu, qui dispose toutes choses avec douceur, est de mettre la religion dans l'esprit par les raisons, et dans le cœur par la grâce.

323 psl. - Antony and Cleopatra is by far the most wonderful. There is not one in which he has followed history so minutely, and yet there are few in which he impresses the notion of angelic strength so much ; — perhaps none in which he impresses it more stroagly. This is greatly owing to the manner in which the fiery force is sustained throughout, and to the numerous momentary flashes of nature counteracting the historic abstraction.
334 psl. - Let Rome in Tiber melt, and the wide arch Of the rang'd empire fall ! Here is my space. Kingdoms are clay ; our dungy earth alike Feeds beast as man ; the nobleness of life Is to do thus ; when such a mutual pair Embracing, And such a twain can do 't, in which I bind, On pain of punishment, the world to weet We stand up peerless.
