Էջ 191 - Wilt thou have this Man to thy wedded husband, to live together after God's ordinance in the holy estate of Matrimony? Wilt thou obey him, and serve him, love, honour, and keep him in sickness and in health; and, forsaking all other, keep thee only unto him, so long as ye both shall live?
Էջ 64 - The custom is still preserved in the North, and was lately at York. On the eve of Christmas-day they carry mistletoe to the high altar of the Cathedral, and proclaim a public and universal liberty, pardon, and freedom to all sorts of inferior and even wicked people, at the gates of the city, towards the four quarters of heaven.

Էջ 36 - Eight mighty kings of Scotland and a queen. Four times five years the Commonwealth I saw ; Ten times the subjects rose against the law.
Էջ 12 - ... do not speak of an individual but of the species, — I use the singular number, as speaking of a singularity in humanity. An old maid is not merely an antiquarian, she is an antiquity ; not merely a record of the past, but the very past itself, she has escaped a great change, and sympathizes not in the ordinary mutations of mortality. She inhabits a little eternity of her own. She is Miss from the beginning of the chapter to the end. I do not like to hear her called Mistress, as is sometimes...
