Pagina 28 - Hues which have words, and speak to ye of heaven, Floats o'er this vast and wondrous monument, And shadows forth its glory. There is given Unto the things of earth, which Time hath bent, A spirit's feeling, and where he hath leant His hand, but broke his scythe, there is a power And magic in the ruined battlement, For which the palace of the present hour Must yield its pomp, and wait till ages are its dower.
Pagina 52 - Quaecunque aut gelido prominet Algido Nigris aut Erymanthi Silvis aut viridis Cragi ; Vos Tempe totidem tollite laudibus Natalemque, mares, Delon Apollinis, Insignemque pharetra Fraternaque humerum lyra.

Pagina 4 - Deep learning is generally the grave of taste. But the learning which is engaged in Greek and Roman antiquities, as it embraces all that is beautiful in art, rather refines and regulates our perceptions of beauty. Here is a villa of exquisite design, planned by a profound antiquary.
Pagina 214 - To a mere student of nature, to an artist, to a man of pleasure, to any man that can be happy among people who seldom affect virtue, perhaps there is no residence in Europe so tempting as Naples and its environs. — What variety of attractions ! — a climate where heaven's breath smells sweet and wooingly— the most beautiful interchange of sea and land — wines, fruits, provisions, in their highest excellence — a vigorous and luxuriant nature, unparalleled in its productions and processes...
Pagina 19 - There, as though Grandeur attracted Grandeur, are beheld All things that strike, ennoble — from the depths Of EGYPT, from the classic fields of GREECE, Her groves, her temples — all things that inspire Wonder, delight...
Pagina 135 - Carlo the mind, as well as the man, is parted off from its fellows in an elbow-chair. There all is regulation and silence: no applause, no censure, no object worthy of- attention except the court and the fiddle. There the drama — but what is a drama in Naples without Punch? or what is Punch out of Naples? Here, in his native tongue...
