Página 57 - It was on the day, or rather night, of the 27th of June 1787, between the hours of eleven and twelve, that I wrote the last lines of the last page in a summer-house in my garden.

Página 9 - J'en voulais venir à ce point. FABLE XI LE LION ET LE RAT II faut, autant qu'on peut, obliger tout le monde : On a souvent besoin d'un plus petit que soi. De cette vérité deux Fables feront foi, Tant la chose en preuves abonde. Entre les pattes d'un Lion Un Rat sortit de terre assez à l'étourdie.

Página 4 - Let us (said He) pour on him all we can. Let the world's riches, which dispersed lie, Contract into a span. So strength first made a way, Then beauty flowed, then wisdom, honour, pleasure. When almost all was out, God made a stay, Perceiving that alone of all His treasure Rest in the bottom lay. For if I should...
Página 164 - O how sudden the jessamine strove With the lilac to render it gay ! Already it calls for my love To prune the wild branches away. From the plains, from the woodlands and groves. What strains of wild melody flow! How the nightingales warble their loves From thickets of roses that blow!
