Сторінка 297 - If we were to form an image of dignity in a man, we should give him wisdom and valour, as being essential to the character of manhood. In like manner, if you describe a right woman in a laudable sense, she should have gentle softness, Under fear, and all those parts of life which distinguish her from the other sex; with some subordination to it, but such an inferiority that makes her still more lovely.

His eyes must be lively, sparkling, and affecting ; and over the whole face there must be a clear complexion, health, cheerfulness, and sensibility. His stature must be inclining to the tall; his motion...
Сторінка 61 - ... her activity will turn them all to profit. Thus is she dependent upon no one ; and she procures her husband genuine independence, that which is interior and domestic : whatever he possesses, he beholds secured ; what he earns, well employed ; and thus he can direct his mind to lofty objects, and if fortune favours, he may act in the state the same character which so well becomes his wife at home.
Сторінка 5 - ... as to mix with the assemblies of knaves and blockheads, nor yet of an opinion that he ought to retire from mankind to seek God in the horror of solitude : on the contrary, he must think that the Almighty is to be found amongst men, where his goodness is most active, and his providence most employed. There it is that religion must enlighten, and reason regulate his conduct, both in the cares of salvation, and the duties of life. With such a man, a woman must enjoy those pleasures in marriage which...
Сторінка 142 - ... becomes, if properly considered, a beauty in the drama, and adds a fresh stroke of truth to the portrait of the lover. Why, after all, should we be offended at what does not offend Juliet herself? For in the original story we find that her attention is first attracted towards Romeo, by seeing him "fancy sick and pale of cheer" for love of a cold beauty.
