Pagina 113 - I am convinced more and more day by day that fine writing is next to fine doing the top thing in the world...
Pagina 113 - This morning I am in a sort of temper, indolent, and supremely careless; I long after a stanza or two of Thomson's • Castle of Indolence ; my passions are all asleep, from my having slumbered till nearly eleven, and weakened the animal fibre all over me to a delightful sensation about three degrees this side of faintness. If I had teeth of pearl and the breath of lilies, I should call it languor ; but as I am I must call it laziness.
Pagina 121 - LANG (Andrew).— THE LIBRARY. With a Chapter on Modern English Illustrated Books, by AUSTIN DOBSON.
Pagina 234 - She did really wish to — I hesitate to write — marry me. That is the way they spell it. Of course I did not write a deliberate answer. How could I deliberate upon it ? I sent back as distinct a no as I have learned to pronounce after considerable practice, and I trust that this no has succeeded. Indeed, I wished that it might burst, like hollow shot, after it had struck and buried itself and made itself felt there. There was no other way. I really had anticipated no such foe as this in my career.
Pagina 236 - Why will you waste so many regards on me, and not know what to think of my silence ? Infer from it what you might from the silence of a dense pine wood. It is its natural condition, except when the winds blow, and the jays scream, and the chickadee winds up his clock. My silence is just as inhuman as that, and no more.
Pagina 88 - The woman writes as if the Devil was in her; and that is the only condition under which a woman ever writes anything worth reading. Generally women write like emasculated men, and are only to be distinguished from male authors by greater feebleness and folly; but when they throw off the restraints of decency, and come before the public stark naked, as it were, — then their books are sure to possess character and value.
Pagina 116 - Lamb (Charles) Elia. Essays which have appeared under that Signature in the London Magazine, London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, Fleet Street, 1823.
Pagina 262 - Company reserves the right to recatalogue the goods for immediate sale without notice to the defaulting buyer, and all costs of such resale will be charged to the defaulter. This condition is without prejudice to the rights of the Company to enforce the sale contract and collect the amount due without such resale at its own option.
