Pàgina 201 - For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, And have tasted the good Word of God, and the powers of the world to come, If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
Pàgina 366 - Montgomeryshire,* but the bridge -j- is certainly a very elegant structure, and speaks itself to be the work of a great architect, most probably of Jones, who was, according to tradition, a native of Dolythelan, a few miles from Llanrwst, up the mountains ; though some of his biographers place his nativity at London, in the neighbourhood of St. Paul's.

His figure such as might his soul proclaim; One eye was blinking, and one leg was lame: His mountain shoulders half his breast o'erspread, Thin hairs bestrew'd his long misshapen head. Spleen to mankind his envious heart possess'd, And much he hated all, but most the best...

Pàgina 173 - neither to hurt his character by a sordid illiberality, nor his fortunes by a vain ostentation of magnificence ; since the one, by making a man odious, deprives him of the power of doing good ; the other, by making him necessitous, puts him under the temptation of doing ill.
Pàgina 162 - There are, says she, in one of her dispatches to him, insuperable difficulties, with respect to the ancient and fundamental laws of the government of our people ; which we fear do not permit sO severe and rigorous a sentence to be given, as your imperial majesty at first seemed to expect in this case ; and we persuade ourself, that your imperial majesty, who are a prince famous for clemency and exact justice, will not require us, who are the guardian and protectress of the laws, to inflict a punishment...
Pàgina 161 - Manchester had been insulted at Venice. That State had broken through their fundamental laws to content the Queen of Great Britain. How noble a picture, of Government, when a Monarch that can force another nation to infringe its constitution, dare not violate his own ! One...
