Стр. 200 - What things have we seen Done at the Mermaid ! Heard words that have been So nimble, and so full of subtle flame, As if that every one from whence they came Had meant to put his whole wit in a jest And had resolved to live a fool the rest Of his dull life...
Стр. 200 - Heard words that have been So nimble, and so full of subtle flame, As if that every one from whence they came Had meant to put his whole wit in a jest And had resolved to live a fool the rest Of his dull life ; then when there hath been thrown Wit able enough to justify the town For three days past ; wit that might warrant be For the whole City to talk foolishly Till that were cancell'd ; and when that was gone, We left an air behind us, which alone Was able to make the two next companies Right witty...

Стр. 98 - Let some pleasing dreams beguile All my fancies ; that from thence I may feel an influence, All my powers of care bereaving ! Though but a shadow, but a sliding, Let me know some little joy ! We that suffer long annoy Are contented with a thought, Through an idle fancy wrought : Oh, let my joys have some abiding ! Gond.
Стр. 46 - Tis of all sleeps the sweetest ; Children begin it to us, strong men seek it, And kings from height of all their painted glories Fall like spent exhalations to this centre : And those are fools that fear it...
Стр. 369 - London, printed for Humphrey Moseley, and are to be sold at his shop at the Princes Armes in St. Pauls Church-yard. 1648.
