Page 133 - Wasting in careless ease the joyous hours ; Haughty, as bards have sung, with princely sway Curbing the fierce flame-breathing steeds of day ; Beauteous as vision seen in dreamy sleep By holy maid, on Delphi's haunted steep, Mid the dim twilight of the laurel grove Too fair to worship, too divine to love.
Page 230 - I call therefore a complete and generous education that which fits a man to perform justly, skilfully and magnanimously, all the offices, both private and publick, of peace and war.
