Стр. 219 - ... till they could all play very near, or altogether as well as myself. This done, say the enemy were forty thousand strong, we twenty would come into the field the tenth of March, or thereabouts, and we would challenge twenty of the enemy ; they could not in their honour refuse...
Стр. 256 - Jonson derived from particular persons, they made it not their business to describe: they represented all the passions very lively, but above all, love. I am apt to believe the English language in them arrived to its highest perfection: what words have since been taken in, are rather superfluous than ornamental.
Стр. 333 - I have my wish, in that I joy thy sight; And sooner shall the sea o'erwhelm my land, Than bear the ship that shall transport thee hence. I here create thee Lord High Chamberlain, Chief Secretary to the state and me, Earl of Cornwall, King and Lord of Man.
Стр. 203 - I'd have you sober, and contain yourself, Not that your sail be bigger than your boat; But moderate your expenses now, at first, As you may keep the same proportion still: Nor stand so much on your gentility, Which is an airy and mere borrow'd thing, From dead men's dust and bones; and none of yours, Except you make, or hold it.

Nature, that loves not to be questioned Why she did this or that, but has her ends, And knows she does well, never gave the world Two things so opposite, so contrary As he and I am: if a bowl of blood Drawn from this arm of mine would poison thee. A draught of his would cure thee.
Стр. 284 - Never, sir, will I Marry ; it is a thing within my vow : But, if I may have leave to serve the princess, To see the virtues of her lord and her, I shall have hope to live.
Стр. 354 - Tell Isabel, the queen, I looked not thus, When for her sake I ran at tilt in France, And there unhorsed the Duke of Cleremont.
Стр. 283 - So high in thoughts as I : You left a kiss Upon these lips then, which I mean to keep From you for ever. I did hear you talk, Far above singing ! After you were gone, I grew acquainted with my heart, and search'd What stirr'd it so : Alas...
