51. Fleetwood and Sidney , which Nature seems to have cast in the same mould, I have been struck with the fatal consequences to Fleetwood, of indulging his spleen at those little rubs in life, which a juster sense of human imperfection would make him consider equally unavoidable, and to be regarded with the same indifference, as a rainy day, a dusty road, or burberry sale any the like trifling inconvenience. There is nothing so inconsiderable which may not become of import* ance, when made an object of serious attention. Sidney never repines like Fleetwood; and as he is much more respected, so he has much more real happiness than either Morley or Dacres. Fleetwood's weaknesses are amiable; and, though we pity, we must love him: but there is a complacent dignity in the character of Sidney, which excites at once our love, respect, and admiration. A N°48. SATURDAY, JULY 10, 1779. The following paper was lately received from u correspondent, who accompanied it with a promise of carrying his idea through some of the other fine arts. I have since been endeavouring to make it a little less technical, in order burberry outlet to fit it more for general perusal; but, finding I could not accomplish this, without hurting the illustrations of the writer, I have given it to my readers in the terms in which I received it. The perceptions of different men, arising from the impressions of the same object, are very often different. Of these we always suppose one to be just and true; all the others to be false. But which is the true, and which the false, we are often at a loss to determine: as the poet has said, 'Tis with our judgments as our watches, none Co just alike, jet each believes his owu. Von. With regard to our external senses, this diversity of feeling, as far as it occurs, is of little consequence; but the truth of perception, in our internal senses, employed in morals and criticism, is more interesting and important. In the judgments we form concerning the beauty and excellency of the several imitative arts, this difference of feeling is very conspicuous; and 'tis difficult to say why each man may not believe his own, or how a standard may be established, by which the truth of different judgments may be compared and tried. Whether there is, or is not, a standard of taste, I shall not attempt to determine; but there is a question connected with that, which properly answered, may have some effect in the decision: whether in the imitative arts, Burberry Outlet Online a person exercised in the practice of the art, or in the frequent contemplation of its productions, be better qualified to judge of these, than a person who only feels the direct and immediate effects of it? In the words of an ancient critic, An docti, qui rationem operis intelligunt, an quiuptatem tantum percipiunt, optime dijudicant? or, as I may express it in English, Whether the artist or connoisseur have any advantage over other persons of common sense or common feeling?
