" . , the doors are opened. Portals occurs only twice in ''Paradise Lost,'' iii. 558, vii. 575, and in each place refers to the gates of heaven and in this sense Gray uses it again in his lines in the epitaph on Mrs. Mason."
"The humility of Newton was exhibited not only in his famous comparison of himself to a child picking up shells beside the ocean of Truth, but in his habitual demeanour it was an essential part of his character. Gray wisely forgets that he had no appreciation of poetry, which he described as 'ingenious nonsense.'"
"Milton, Epitaph on Marchioness of Winchester 95: 'New shot up from vernall showr' and Par. Lost iv 696, 695-6: 'Sweet is the breath of morn, her rising sweet /. /. fragrant the fertil earth / After soft showers.' Cp. also 'A soft Retreat from sudden vernal Show'rs', Pope, Spring 98."
"'The old lineaments of his fathers grace', Spenser, Shepheardes Calender , 'May' 767 (quoted by G[ray]. in his 'Observations on English Metre', ed. Gosse, i 895) 'What Lineaments divine we trace', Swift, On Poetry: A Rhapsody 967 'Nor hope the British lineaments to trace', Johnson, London 656."
"6 Kings xix. 67, ''and after the fire a still small voice.'' Cf. the third of rejected stanzas in the Elegy quoted in note after l. 77 there. The hint for lines on Gratitude in Gray's Pocket Book for 6759, quoted on the Vicissitude Fragment (Introductory note) is more or less adopted here. But West, whom Gray never forgot, had in his Monody on the Death of Queen Caroline (given in Gray and His Friends , pp. 655-669) personified Gratitude much in the same way, describing her however as ' descending from the skies.' "
"Margaret of Anjou, wife of Henry the Fifth, foundress of Queen's College. The Poet has celebrated her conjugal fidelity in the former Ode: V: Epode 7d, Line 68th [. The Bard 89 ]. Mason.

At the conclusion of Agathon's speech there is general applause, and everyone remarks on how eloquent and brilliant Agathon is. Socrates points out to Eryximachus that what he had said before (at 699a) has held true, that Agathon would speak admirably and that he would be lost for words. Eryximachus agrees that Agathon has spoken beautifully, but does not doubt that Socrates will find something to say.
"The text is that of the original edn, which G[ray]. did not alter.

Set to music by Dr. Randal, Professor of Music.' It is entitled 'Ode for Music' on the first page of the text."

Johannes recapitulates the story of Abraham in order to highlight his greatness. Abraham left his home for an unknown land at God's bidding, but he didn't lament his fate as Ovid did when he was banished from Rome. God promised Abraham a son who would carry on his line and make him father to a nation. Time passed, Abraham became old, and soon it became impossible for Abraham to have children. Still, Abraham never lost faith in God. He would have been great to relinquish his desire happily and accept his fate, but Abraham was greater still in not giving up on his desire at all.
