Page 72 - I was really astonished (I ought not to have been so) and mortified at the ineffable distance in point of sense, harmony, effect, and even Imagination, passion and Invention, between the little Queen Anne's man, and us of the Lower Empire.
Page 74 - TERESA : — I have read this book in your garden; my love, you were absent, or else I could not have read it. It is a favourite book of yours, and the writer was a friend of mine. You will not understand these English words, and others will not understand them — which is the reason I have not scrawled them in Italian.
Page 272 - THE poet in a golden clime was born, With golden stars above; Dower'd with the hate of hate, the scorn of scorn, The love of love.
Page 74 - ... years of age, and two out of a convent. I wish that you had stayed there, with all my heart — or, at least, that I had never met you in your married state.
Page 90 - Why should I regret it ? can it afford me any pleasure ? have I not enjoyed it to a surfeit ? Few men can live faster than I did. I am, literally speaking, a young old man.

Page 76 - For my own part, I am violent, but not malignant; for only fresh provocations can awaken my resentments.. To you, who are colder and more concentrated, I would just hint, that you may sometimes mistake the depth of a cold anger for dignity, and a worse feeling for duty. I assure you that I bear you now (whatever I may have done) no resentment whatever. Remember, that if you have injured me in aught, this forgiveness is something ; and that, if I have injured you, it is something more still, if it...
Page 72 - With regard to poetry in general, I am convinced, the more I think of it, that he and all of us — Scott, Southey, Wordsworth, Moore, Campbell, I— are all in the wrong, one as much as another ; that we are upon a wrong revolutionary...
Page 72 - Wordsworth, Moore, Campbell, I, — are all in the wrong, one as much as another ; that we are upon a wrong revolutionary poetical system, or systems, not worth a damn in itself, and from which none but Rogers and Crabbe are free ; and that the present and next...
