246 psl. - Rather do thou walk with him, ride with him, play with him, be his faery, his page, his everything that love and poetry have invented ; but watch him well ; sport with his fancies ; turn them about like the ringlets round his cheek; and if ever he meditate on power, go toss up thy baby to his brow, and bring back his thoughts into his heart by the music of thy discourse. Teach him to live unto God and unto thee ; and he will discover that women, like the plants in woods, derive their softness and...
61 psl. - Sir, I am obliged to you for having asked me this evening. Parr is a fair man. I do not know when I have had an occasion of such free controversy. It is remarkable how much of a man's life may pass without meeting with any instance of this kind of open discussion.

341 psl. - Comfort thee, O thou mourner, yet awhile! Again shall Elia's smile Refresh thy heart, where heart can ache no more. What is it we deplore? He leaves behind him, freed from griefs and years, Far worthier things than tears. The love of friends without a single foe: Unequalled lot below!

Are not his footsteps followed by the eyes Of all the good and wise? Tho...

Dr. Johnson said, ' Why did you stamp, Dr. Parr?' — I replied, ' Sir, because YOU stamped ; and I was resolved not to give you the advantage even of a stamp in the argument.
214 psl. - PROUD word you never spoke, but you will speak Four not exempt from pride some future day. Resting on one white hand a warm wet cheek Over my open volume you will say,
215 psl. - In Clementina's artless mien Lucilla asks me what I see, And are the roses of sixteen Enough for me ? Lucilla asks, if that be all, Have I not cull'd as sweet before : Ah, yes, Lucilla! and their fall I still deplore. I now behold another scene, Where Pleasure beams with heaven's own light, More pure, more constant, more serene, And not less bright : Faith, on whose breast the Loves repose, Whose chain of flowers no force can sever, And Modesty, who, when she goes, Is gone for ever. (cxxxix.) The...
7 psl. - tis and ever was my wish and way To let all flowers live freely, and all die, Whene'er their Genius bids their souls depart, Among their kindred in their native place.
