The last image of that troubled heap,
When sense subsides and fancy sports in sleep,
Through past the recollection of the thought,
Becomes the stuff of which our dream is wrought.

-Pope, Aleksander

You season still with sports your serious hours;
For age but tastes of pleasures, your devours.

-Dryden.

If any man turn religion into raillery, by bold jests,
He renders himself ridiculous,
Because he sports with his own life.

-Tillotson

Topic: choleric
Posted: Monday, October 14, 2019 3:22:23 AM
While I fully recognise the importance of not allowing the effects of a quarrelsome or choleric temperament to serve as a factor which may reduce the crime of murder to one of manslaughter, nevertheless I consider that justice cannot be done without regard to the particular frailties of particular individuals where their capacity to restrain themselves in the face of provocation is lessened by some affliction which falls short of a mental abnormality.

I was unable to treat this part of my subject more in detail,
Without becoming dry and tedious.

Consciousness being interrupted, and we losing
Sight of out past selves, doubts are raised whether
We are the same.

We were
Two lads, that thought there was no more behind,
But such a day tomorrow as today,
And to be boy eternal.

If he were truly bold man, he could began with nectarine. As certain Miller (who could have known about the work of Aleksander, Pope) wrote, 'This fruit differs from a peach in having a smooth rind, and the flesh firmer.'.

Hard by a stye, beneath a roof of thatch,
Dwelt Obloquy, who in her early days
Baskets of fish at Billinsgate did watch,
Cod, whiting, oyster, mackerel, spray, or plaise.

Topic: hackbut
Posted: Sunday, October 13, 2019 6:16:13 AM
Hermann Mendel, in his "Musikalisches Conversations-Lexikon", devotes a few pages to the Zigeŭner. He refers to the use of the hackbut and cymbals amongst the gypsies in former times. At the time of the publication in 1889 "Through Romany Songland" by Smith, Laura Alexandrine, the hackbut was a favourite instrument with the Romanies in Hungary. This hackbut, or cobza, was struck with bells, and produced a most penetrating song. Barna Mihaly, a gypsy, became so proficient a performer on it that he was given the name of the "Magyar Orpheus" by Count Cschaky.

-Laura Alexandrine Smith, Authoress of "The Music of the Water", in "Through Romany Songland".

[Zigeŭner in English is a Gypsy.]

He knew that there were so many witnesses in these two miracles,
That is was impossible to refute such multitude.
