Strana 160 - He and his faithless progeny. Whose fault ? Whose but his own \ Ingrate, he had of me All he could have ; I made him just and right, Sufficient to have stood, though free to fall.
Strana 41 - ... storms of fate, And greatly falling with a falling state. While Cato gives his little senate laws...
Strana 152 - Give me the daggers: the sleeping and the dead Are but as pictures; 'tis the eye of childhood That fears a painted devil. If he do bleed, I'll gild the faces of the grooms withal; For it must seem their guilt.
