Página 80 - Still to be neat, still to be drest, As you were going to a feast ; Still to be powdered, still perfumed: Lady, it is to be presumed, Though art's hid causes are not found, All is not sweet, all is not sound. Give me a look, give me a face; That makes simplicity a grace ; Robes loosely flowing, hair as free : Such sweet neglect more taketh me, Than all the adulteries of art ; They strike mine eyes, but not my heart.

Página 247 - SUMMER is sweet, ay, summer is sweet — Minna mine with the brown brown eyes : Red are the roses under his feet, Clear the blue of his windless skies. Pleasant it is in a boat to glide On a river whose ripples to ocean haste With indolent fingers fretting the tide, And an indolent arm round a darling waist — And to see, as the western purple dies, Hesper mirrored in brown brown eyes.
Página 213 - Thy best time will be towards thirty ; for as the younger times are unfit either to choose or to govern a wife and family ; so if thou stay long, thou shalt hardly see the education of thy children, which being left to strangers, are in effect lost ; and better were it to be unborn than ill-bred ; for thereby thy posterity shall either perish, or remain a shame to thy name and family.
Página 297 - GOOD manners is the art of making those people easy with whom we converse. Whoever makes the fewest persons uneasy is the best bred in the company.
Página 329 - You may depend upon it, religion is, in its essence, the most gentlemanly thing in the world. It will alone gentilize if unmixed with cant ; and I know nothing else that will, alone. Certainly not the army, which is thought to be the grand embellisher of manners.
