James Thomson
Ships dim-discovered dropping from the clouds.
Thomson quotes
He saw her charming, but he saw not half
The charms her downcast modesty conceal'd.
Shade, unperceiv'd, so softening into shade.

Thomson James quotes
Delightful task! to rear the tender thought,
To teach the young idea how to shoot.
Thomson James
Sighed and looked unutterable things.
James Thomson quotes
Whoe'er amidst the sons
Of reason, valour, liberty, and virtue
Displays distinguish'd merit, is a noble
Of Nature's own creating.
James Thomson
The negligence of Nature wide and wild,
Where, undisguised by mimic art, she spreads
Unbounded beauty to the roving eye.
Thomson James quotes
Scoundrel maxim.
