Halaman 508 - Some men with swords may reap the field, And plant fresh laurels where they kill: But their strong nerves at last must yield; They tame but one another still: Early or late They stoop to fate, And must give up their murmuring breath, When they, pale captives, creep to death. The garlands wither on your brow, Then boast no more your mighty deeds; Upon Death's purple altar now See, where the victor-victim bleeds: Your heads must come To the cold tomb; Only the actions of the just Smell sweet, and blossom...
Halaman 477 - British navigation ; and he will look with anxious expectation to that moment, when a more dignified and enlightened policy on the part of Prussia...
Halaman 503 - He felt too much, and reflected too little ; perhaps he did not take sufficient pains to inquire into facts. He gave an indolent indulgence to his benevolent and great feelings. An error of an inferior appearance, but of fatal influence upon the Opposition party, was the countenance given to the Jacobin party in England by Mr. Fox. He was misled in this by some people about him ; and by the persuasion, no doubt, that that powerful party might easily be restrained from excess, and in the mean time...
Halaman 524 - Russian plenipotentiary, some of the principal points might however be discussed, and eren provisionally arranged. — It might seem, that Russia, on account of her remote situation, should have fewer immediate interests to discuss with France than other powers ; but that court, so respectable in every point of view, interests herself, like England, warmly in every thing that con-< cerns the greater or less degree of independence enjoyed by the different princes and states of Europe.
Halaman 1 - IN reading the history of every country, there are certain periods at which the mind naturally pauses to meditate upon, and consider them, with reference, not only to their immediate effects, but to their more remote consequences.
Halaman 55 - Sicily is a sine qua non; on which subject, if the French minister recedes from his former answer, it is in vain that any further discussion should take place. It is clearly within his first opinion delivered to your lordship ; it is clearly within his last description of places which are reciprocally possessed by the two countries, and cannot in all probability be recovered by war.
Halaman 55 - Lordship, it is clearly also within his last description of places which are reciprocally possessed by the two countries and cannot in all probability be recovered by war. If according to the hope conceived by Your Lordship this matter should be arranged, you may then open your full powers, stating at the same time the determination of this Court, not to come to any final agreement without the consent of Russia.
Halaman 46 - AH that is now at an end ; to act in concert for the establishment of the repose of Europe, and for its subsequent preservation, is the principal, and I may even say the only object of our present communications. After the open disavowal which you have made of the intention falsely imputed to you with respect to our continental connections, no doubt can exist upon that essential point, and it would be the more distressing that difficulty, in form rather than in substance, should prolong a war which...
Halaman 46 - ... that the object of both parties should be a peace honourable for both, and for their respective allies ; and, at the same time, of a nature to secure, as far as is in their power, the future tranquillity of Europe.
Halaman 56 - It was on the faith of the uti possidetis being to be strictly observed as the basis, and particularly Sicily, on which satisfaction had been given to your lordship, that his majesty was induced to authorize your lordship to hold further conferences with M. Talleyrand, Any tergiversation or cavil therefore on that article, would be a breach Of the principle of the proposed basis in its most essential part.
