Strana 297 - To have thy asking, yet wait many years; To fret thy soul with crosses and with cares ; To eat thy heart through comfortless despairs; To fawn, to crouch, to wait, to ride, to run, To spend, to give, to want, to be undone.
Strana 157 - Adam the goodliest man of men since born His sons, the fairest of her daughters Eve.
Strana 160 - Though equal to all things, for all things unfit; Too nice for a statesman, too proud for a wit; For a patriot, too cool; for a drudge, disobedient; And too fond of the right to pursue the expedient. In short, 'twas his fate, unemploy'd or in place, sir, To eat mutton cold, and cut blocks with a razor.
Strana 3 - ... in waste places far from danger of law, maketh his mantle his house, and under it covereth himself from the wrath of heaven, from the offence of the earth, and from the sight of men. When it raineth, it is his pent-house ; when it bloweth, it is his tent ; when it freezeth, it is his tabernacle.

Strana 270 - M'Leod was perfectly silent. The company broke up ; and, as we were going out of the room, I maliciously asked M'Leod, wh he, who could say so much in his own defence, had suffered himself to be so completely silenced ? He answered me, in his low, deliberate voice, in the words of Moliere — " ' Qu'est-ce que la raison avec un filet de voix contre une gueule comme cellela?' At some other time," added Mr. M'Leod, "my sentiments shall be at your lordship's disposal.
Strana 133 - Well then, quoth Master More, how say you in this matter ? What think ye to be the cause of these shelves and flats that stop up Sandwich haven ? Forsooth, Sir, quoth he, I am an old man ; I think that Tenterton steeple is the cause of Goodwin sands. For I am an old man, Sir...
Strana 162 - Shakespeare approximates the remote, and familiarizes the wonderful ; the event which he represents will not happen, but if it were possible, its effects would probably be such as he has assigned ; and it may be said, that he has not only shown human nature as it acts in real exigencies, but as it would be found in trials, to which it cannot be exposed.
