Strana 95 - O first created Beam, and thou great Word, Let there be lig;ht, and light was over all; Why am I thus bereav'd thy prime decree?
Strana 67 - AWAKE, my St. John ! leave all meaner things To low ambition and the pride of kings. Let us (since life can little more supply Than just to look about us and to die) Expatiate free o'er all this scene of man ; A mighty maze ! but not without a plan ; A wild where weeds and flowers promiscuous shoot, Or garden tempting with forbidden fruit.

Strana 104 - And if a verse, here and there, fal out a syllable shorter or longer than another, I rather aret it to the negligence and rape of Adam Scrivener .that I may speake as Chaucer doth), than to any unconning or oversight in the author : for how fearful he was to have his works miswritten, or his vearse mismeasured, may appeare in the end of his fift booke of Troylus and Creseide...
