The Way We Live Now - Chapter 73. Marie's Fortune
CHAPTER LXXIII. MARIE'S FORTUNEWhen Marie Melmotte assured Sir Felix Carbury that her father had already endowed her with a large fortune which could not be taken from her without her own consent, she spoke no more than the truth. She knew of the matter almost as little as it was possible that she should know. As far as reticence on the subject was compatible with the object he had in view Melmotte had kept from her all knowledge of the details of the arrangement. But it had been necessary when the...

The Three Musketeers - Chapter 48. A Family Affair The Three Musketeers - Chapter 48. A Family Affair

The Three Musketeers - Chapter 48. A Family Affair
Athos had invented the phrase, family affair. A family affair was not subject to the investigation of the cardinal; a family affair concerned nobody. People might employ themselves in a family affair before all the world. Therefore Athos had invented the phrase, family affair. Aramis had discovered the idea, the lackeys. Porthos had discovered the means, the diamond. D'Artagnan alone had discovered nothing--he, ordinarily the most inventive of the four; but it must be also said that the very name...

A Personal Record: Some Reminiscences - Chapter III
CHAPTER IIIThe devouring in a dismal forest of a luckless Lithuanian dog bymy grand-uncle Nicholas B. in company of two other military andfamished scarecrows, symbolised, to my childish imagination, thewhole horror of the retreat from Moscow and the immorality of aconqueror's ambition. An extreme distaste for that objectionableepisode has tinged the views I hold as to the character andachievements of Napoleon the Great. I need not say that theseare unfavourable. It was morally reprehensible for... Nonfictions - Post by : JKinakin - Author : Joseph Conrad - Read : 3035

Thou Hast Been Alway Good To Me Thou Hast Been Alway Good To Me

Thou Hast Been Alway Good To Me
"_He doeth all things well._"Thou hast been alway good to me and mine Since our first father by transgression fell.Through all Thy sorest judgments love doth shine-- Lord, of a truth, Thou doest all things well.Thou didst the food of immortality Compass with flame, lest he thereto should win.But what? his doom, yet eating of that tree, Had been immortal life of shame and sin!I would not last immortal in such wise; Desired death, not life, is now my song.Through death shall I go back to Paradise,...

Reverie Of Mahomed Akram At The Tamarind Tank Reverie Of Mahomed Akram At The Tamarind Tank

Reverie Of Mahomed Akram At The Tamarind Tank
The Desert is parched in the burning sun And the grass is scorched and white. But the sand is passed, and the march is done, We are camping here to-night. I sit in the shade of the Temple walls, While the cadenced water evenly falls, And a peacock out of the Jungle calls To another, on yonder tomb. Above, half seen, in the lofty gloom, Strange works of a long dead people loom, Obscene and savage and half effaced-- An elephant hunt, a musicians' feast--...

Child Maidelvold
The fair Sidselil, of all maidens the flower,With her mother the Queen sat at work in her bower.So hard at the woof the fair Sidselil plies,That out from her bosom, so white, the milk flies."Now hear thou, O Sidselil, child of my heart,What causes the milk from thy bosom to start?""O that is not milk, my dear mother, I vow,It is but the mead I was drinking just now.""Unlike are the two, most unlike to the sight,The one it is brown, and the other is white.""I see it is best that the truth be declared,The...

Lines On An Autumnal Evening
O thou wild Fancy, check thy wing! No more Those thin white flakes, those purple clouds explore! Nor there with happy spirits speed thy flight Bath'd in rich amber-glowing floods of light; Nor in yon gleam slow descends the day, With western peasants hail the morning ray! Ah! rather bid the perish'd pleasures move, A shadowy train, across the soul of Love! O'er Disappointment's wintry desert fling Each flower that wreath'd the dewy locks of Spring, When blushing, like a bride, from Hope's...

The Prayer Of The South The Prayer Of The South

The Prayer Of The South
My brow is bent beneath a heavy rod! My face is wan and white with many woes!But I will lift my poor chained hands to God, And for my children pray, and for my foes.Beside the graves where thousands lowly lie I kneel, and weeping for each slaughtered son,I turn my gaze to my own sunny sky, And pray, O Father, let Thy will be done!My heart is filled with anguish, deep and vast! My hopes are buried with my children's dust!My joys have fled, my tears are flowing fast! In whom, save Thee, our Father,... Poems - Post by : caller - Author : Abram Joseph Ryan - Read : 2290

Melancholy Melancholy

Melancholy
There comes a time for flowers to fade, and light to die in gloom,There is a time for mortal bliss to know a certain doom.Sometimes I feel that I have reached that hour, and I have felt,When pondering o'er the dreary change, my spirit in me melt.The joyful trust, the bounding hopes, that laughed at scorned defeat,The feeling, like pure rock-born streams, as strong, as deep, and sweet;The soul that thrilled with transport wild, at Beauty's magic name;Ah! all have strangely altered now,--I am no more...
