Pagina 105 - Yet, Freedom ! yet thy banner, torn, but flying, Streams like the thunder-storm against the wind; Thy trumpet voice, though broken now and dying, The loudest still the tempest leaves behind; Thy tree hath lost its blossoms, and the rind...
Pagina 91 - The mind which is immortal makes itself Requital for its good or evil thoughts — Is its own origin of ill and end, And its own place and time: its innate sense, When stripped of this mortality, derives No colour from the fleeting things without ; But is absorbed in sufferance or in joy. Born from the knowledge of its own desert...
Pagina 100 - Rome ! my country ! city of the soul ! The orphans of the heart must turn to thee, Lone mother of dead empires ! and control In their shut breasts their petty misery. What are our woes and sufferance ?

Pagina 199 - Sonetto, apparve a me una mirabile visione, nella quale io vidi cose che mi fecero proporre di non dir più di questa benedetta, infino a tanto che io non potessi più degnamente trattare di lei.
Pagina 216 - ... mia voglia, la piaga della fortuna, che suole ingiustamente al piagato molte volte essere imputata. Veramente io sono stato legno...
Pagina 106 - I shall not fall back ; though I don't think them in force or heart sufficient to make much of it. But, onward! — it is now the time to act, and what signifies self, if a single spark of that which would be worthy of the past can be bequeathed unquenchedly to the future ? It is not one man, nor a million, but the spirit of liberty which must be spread.
