Стр. 29 - Viselli : 105 est modus in rebus, sunt certi denique fines, quos ultra citraque nequit consistere rectum.
Стр. 306 - Anon they move In perfect phalanx to the Dorian mood Of flutes and soft recorders...
Стр. 302 - The interim of unsweating themselves regularly and convenient rest before meat may both with profit and delight be taken up in recreating and composing their travailed spirits with the solemn and divine harmonies of music, heard or learned either while the skilful organist plies his grave and fancied descant in lofty fugues or the whole symphony with artful and unimaginable touches adorn and grace the well-studied chords of some choice composer — sometimes the lute or soft organ-stop waiting on...
Стр. 189 - After all, it is a good thing to laugh at any rate ; and if a straw can tickle a man, it is an instrument of happiness.
Стр. 205 - Otway possessed this part as thoroughly as any of the ancients or moderns. I will not defend every thing in his Venice Preserved; but I must bear this testimony to his memory, that the passions are truly touched in it, though, perhaps there is somewhat to be desired both in the grounds of them, and in the height and elegance of expression ; but nature is there, which is the greatest beauty.

No person, no incident in the piece or in the play, but must be of use to carry on the main design. All things else are like six fingers to the hand, when nature, which is superfluous in nothing, can do her work with five. " A Painter must reject all trifling ornaments ;" — so must a Poet refuse all tedious and unnecessary descriptions.
Стр. 204 - Jupiter ;" and, to speak in the same heathen language, we call it the gift of our Apollo, not to be obtained by pains or study, if we are not born to it : for the motions which are studied are never so natural as those which break out in the height of a real passion. Mr. Otway possessed this part as thoroughly as any of the antients or moderns.
Стр. 220 - Oh lasting as those colours may they shine, Free as thy stroke, yet faultless as thy line, New graces yearly like thy works display, Soft without weakness, without glaring gay ; Led by some rule that guides, but not constrains ; And finish 'd more through happiness than pains.
Стр. 3 - SHADWELL'S barren head, The Bard oppress'd, yet not subdued by fate, For very bread descended to translate : And he, whose fancy, copious as his phrase, Could light at will expression's brightest blaze^ On Fresnoy's lay...
