Populāri fragmenti

85. lappuse - Such people there are living and flourishing in the world — Faithless, Hopeless, Charityless : let us have at them, dear friends, with might and main. Some there are, and very successful too, mere quacks and fools : and it was to combat and expose such as those, no doubt, that Laughter was made.
xiv. lappuse - But for those obstinate questionings Of sense and outward things, Fallings from us, vanishings; Blank misgivings of a creature Moving about in worlds not realized, High instincts before which our mortal nature Did tremble like a guilty thing surprised...
84. lappuse - And while the moralist, who is holding forth on the cover (an accurate portrait of your humble servant) , professes to wear neither gown nor bands, but only the very same long-eared livery in which his congregation is arrayed...
378. lappuse - English line — the dark rolling column pressed on and up the hill. It seemed almost to crest the eminence, when it began to wave and falter. Then it stopped, still facing the shot. Then at last the English troops rushed from the post from which no enemy had been able to dislodge them, and the Guard turned and fled. No more firing was heard at Brussels — the pursuit rolled miles away. Darkness came down on the field and city: and Amelia was praying for George, who was lying on his face, dead,...
12. lappuse - ... wrote a manly and pathetic letter to Miss Pinkerton, recommending the orphan child to her protection, and so descended to the grave, after two bailiffs had quarrelled over his corpse. Rebecca was seventeen when she came to Chiswick, and was bound over as an articled pupil...
344. lappuse - Time out of mind strength and courage have been the theme of bards and romances ; and from the story of Troy down to to-day, poetry has always chosen a soldier for a hero. 1 wonder is it because men are cowards in heart that they admire bravery so much, and place military valour so far beyond every other quality for reward and worship...
210. lappuse - Nabob — your mistress for whom you now care no more than for Queen Elizabeth. Vows, love, promises, confidences, gratitude, how queerly they read after a while ! There ought to be a law in Vanity Fair ordering the destruction of every written document (except receipted tradesmen's bills) after a certain brief and proper interval. Those quacks and misanthropes who advertise indelible Japan ink should be made to perish along with their wicked discoveries. The best ink for Vanity Fair use would be...
11. lappuse - The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion ; and so let all young persons take their choice.
47. lappuse - It would be ungentlemanlike (in a manner) to resist it. Perhaps Dobbin's foolish soul revolted against that exercise of tyranny ; or perhaps he had a hankering feeling of revenge in his mind, and longed to measure himself against that splendid bully and tyrant, who had all the glory, pride, pomp, circumstance, banners flying, drums beating, guards saluting, in the place.
49. lappuse - At the twelfth round the latter champion was all abroad, as the saying is, and had lost all presence of mind and power of attack or defence.
