Sida 190 - And when she had done giving him drink, she said, I will draw water for thy camels also, until they have done drinking.
Sida 190 - And she hasted, and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw water, and drew for all his camels.
Sida 34 - Jove fix'd it certain, that whatever day Makes man a slave takes half his worth away.
Sida 137 - Due victims slay to all th' etherial powers: Then heaven decrees in peace to end my days, And steal myself from life by slow decays; Unknown to pain, in age resign my breath, When late stern Neptune points the shaft of death; To the dark grave retiring as to rest; My people blessing, by my people bless'd. Such future scenes th' all-righteous powers display, By their dread seer,* and such my future day.
Sida 165 - I can affirm (however unequal all his imitations must be) that of the latter has been much more difficult. Whoever expects here the same pomp of verse, and the same ornaments of diction, as in the Iliad, he will, and he ought to be, disappointed.

It is on occasion of citing some such particular passages in Homer, that Longinus breaks into this reflection; which seems to determine his meaning chiefly to that sense. Upon the whole, he affirms the Odyssey to have less sublimity and fire than the Iliad, but he does not say it wants the sublime, or wants fire. He affirms it to be narrative, but...
Sida 15 - ... O'er earth, (returns the prince) resounds thy name, Thy well-tried, wisdom, and thy martial Fame, Yet at thy words I start, in wonder lost; Can we engage, not decads, but an host ' Can we alone in furious battle stand, Against that numerous and determin'd band?
Sida 113 - If, as thy words import, (he thus began) Ulysses lives, and thou the mighty man, Great are thy wrongs, and much hast thou sustain'd In thy spoil'd palace, and exhausted land; The cause and author of those guilty deeds, Lo!
