Milton, ‘Paradise Lost’, book IV, stanza 35) — О солнце, в венце своей великой славы, Одно в своих владеньях, как господь, На этот мир взирающее новый.

Hide your heads, ye young Romeos and Leanders, this blasé old beau loves with an hysterical fervour that requires four adjectives to every noun to properly describe. (J. K.
