Стр. 21 - OI ask your pardon for that— one's cruelty is one's power, and when one parts with one's cruelty, one parts with one's power; and when one has parted with that, I fancy one's old and ugly.
Стр. 21 - Till I had the cramp in my fingers, I'll vow, mem. And all to no purpose. But when your laship pins it up with poetry, it sits so pleasant the next day as anything, and is so pure and so crips.
Стр. 1 - And for a discerning man somewhat too passionate a lover, for I like her with all her faults; nay, like her for her faults. Her follies are so natural, or so artful, that they become her, and those affectations which in another woman would be odious serve but to make her more agreeable.

Стр. 3 - Not at all : Witwoud grows by the knight like a medlar grafted on a crab. One will melt in your mouth, and tother set your teeth on edge. One is all pulp and the other all core. Mira. So one will be rotten before he be ripe, and the other will be rotten without ever being ripe at all.
Стр. 7 - Why he would slip you out of this chocolate-house, just when you had been talking to him. As soon as your back was...
Стр. 23 - Sententious Mirabell! Prithee, don't look with that violent and inflexible wise face, like Solomon at the dividing of the child in an old tapestry hanging.
