Strana 81 - We few, we happy few, we band of brothers : For he, to-day that sheds his blood with me, Shall be my brother ; be he ne'er so vile, This day shall gentle his condition...
Strana 149 - Culpeper whether he meant him ; he said, yes, he meant his Lordship. My Lord told him he was no excluder (as indeed he was not) ; the other affirming it...
Strana 68 - Hollatul, gross one hundred and ten, chests four. I have seen some very long ones and also small from thence, that truly are very fine. If there comes no more, they'll do us no great hurt. I think they must be permitted to be patterns to set our people on work, and if our smoakers would use none but fine ones, I question not but we should make as fine as anybody.
Strana 223 - There is a generation, whose teeth are as swords, and their jaw-teeth as knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, and the needy from among men.
Strana 191 - There," said he, pointing to a bank of " garden flowers grown wild," " there are the Findernes' flowers, brought by Sir Geoffrey from the Holy Land, and do what we will, they will never die...
Strana 110 - Sir, it will be much exaggerated in popular talk : for, in the first place, the common people do not accurately adapt their thoughts to the objects ; nor, secondly, do they accurately adapt their words to their thoughts : they do not mean to lie ; but, taking no pains to be exact, they give you very false accounts.

Strana 140 - Then have they neather stocks (stockings) to these gay hosen, not of cloth (though never so fine), for that is thought too base, but of jarnsey, worsted, crewell, eilke, thread, and such like, or else, at the least, of the finest yarn that can be got ; and so curiously knit with open seame down the leg, with quirkes and clocks about the ancles, and sometime (haplie) interlaced about the ancles with gold or silver threads, as is wonderful to behold.
Strana 177 - ... her by drowning. The same night (Providence so ordering it) there were several persons of inferior rank drinking in an alehouse at Leek, whereof one having been out, and observing the darkness and other ill circumstances of the weather, coming in again, said to the rest of his companions, that he were a stout man indeed that would venture to...
Strana 176 - O, that the slave had forty thousand lives ! One is too poor, too weak for my revenge.
Strana 81 - And gentlemen in England, now a-bed, Shall think themselves accurs'd, they were not here; And hold their manhoods cheap, while any speaks, That fought with us upon saint Crispin's day.
