Страница 31 - Th' adjacent parts ; in all the fabric You shall not see one stone nor a brick, But all of wood, by powerful spell Of magic made impregnable : There's neither iron-bar nor gate, Portcullis, chain, nor bolt, nor grate; And yet men durance there abide, In dungeon scarce three inches wide; With roof so low, that under it They never stand, but lie or sit; And yet so foul, that whoso is in, Is to the middle-leg in prison ; In circle magical confined, With walls of subtle air and wind, Which none are able...

Страница 92 - But och ! it hardens a' within, And petrifies the feeling! To catch dame Fortune's golden smile, Assiduous wait upon her; And gather gear by every wile That's justified by honour; Not for to hide it in a hedge, Nor for a train attendant; But for the glorious privilege Of being independent.
Страница 280 - Every now and then the world is visited by one of these delusive seasons, when "the credit system," as it is called, expands to full luxuriance: everybody trusts everybody; a bad debt is a thing unheard of; the broad way to certain and sudden wealth lies plain and open; and men are tempted to dash forward boldly, from the facility of borrowing. Promissory notes, interchanged between scheming individuals, are liberally discounted at the banks, which become so many mints to coin words into cash; and...
