Pagina 124 - Let him that is a true-born gentleman, And stands upon the honour of his birth, If he suppose that I have pleaded truth, From off this brier pluck a white rose with me. Som. Let him that is no coward nor no flatterer, But dare maintain the party of the truth, Pluck a red rose from off this thorn with me.
Pagina 114 - Death is there associated, not, as in Westminster Abbey and St Paul's, with genius and virtue, with public veneration and with imperishable renown; not, as in our humblest churches and churchyards, with everything that is most endearing in social and domestic charities; but with whatever is darkest in human nature and in human destiny, with the savage triumph of implacable enemies, with the inconstancy, the ingratitude, the cowardice of friends, with all the miseries of fallen greatness and of blighted...

Pagina 146 - His tendency to the fantastic and grand led him to select the picture with the elephant carrying the candelabra; while his ardent imagination, ever directed to the dramatic, would not be restrained within the limits of the original. Instead of a harmless sheep, which, in Mantegna, is walking by the side of the foremost elephant, Rubens has introduced a lion and a lioness (or rather a tiger) growling angrily at the elephant. Nor is the elephant more peacefully disposed, but, with an expression of...
Pagina 154 - The transition from death to life is expressed in Lazarus with wonderful spirit, and at the same time with perfect fidelity to Scripture. The grave-clothes, by which his face is thrown into deep shade, vividly excite the idea of the night of the grave, which but just before enveloped him ; the eye looking eagerly from...
