Стр. 12 - Still to be neat, still to be drest, As you were going to a feast ; Still to be powdered, still perfumed: Lady, it is to be presumed, Though art's hid causes are not found, All is not sweet, all is not sound.

Стр. 333 - But never sued, or cursed with bell and book: With patience bearing wrong, but offering none, Since every man is free to lose his own. The country churls, according to their kind (Who grudge their dues, and love to be behind), The less he sought his offerings, pinch'd the more; And praised a priest contented to be poor.

Стр. 316 - Freke's leg was much cut and bruised; and now that she was no longer supported by the hopes of revenge, she began to lament loudly and incessantly the injury that she had sustained. She impatiently inquired how long it was probable that she should be confined by this accident; and she grew quite outrageous when it was hinted, that the beauty of her legs would be spoiled, and that she would never more be able to appear to advantage in man's apparel.
Стр. 146 - I only wish his wife had been by. Why the devil did not she make her appearance? — I suppose the prude was afraid of my demolishing and unrigging her.
Стр. 196 - From poetry or romance, young people usually form their early ideas of love, before they have actually felt the passion ; and the image which they have in their own minds of the beau ideal is cast upon the first objects they afterward behold. This, if I may be allowed the expression, is Cupid's Fata Morgana. Deluded mortals are in ecstasy whilst the illusion lasts, and in despair when it vanishes.
Стр. 143 - To cut the matter short at once," cried Mrs. Freke, " why, when a woman likes a man, does not she go and tell him so honestly?" Belinda, surprised by this question from a woman, was too much abashed instantly to answer. " Because she's a hypocrite. That is and must be the answer.
