עמוד 130 - Excitements of my reason and my blood, And let all sleep, while to my shame I see, The imminent death of twenty thousand men, That, for a fantasy and trick of fame, Go to their graves like beds, fight for a plot Whereon the numbers cannot try the cause, Which is not tomb enough and continent To hide the slain?
עמוד 130 - Examples gross as earth exhort me : Witness this army of such mass and charge, Led by a delicate and tender prince. Whose spirit with divine ambition puff'd, Makes mouths at the invisible event. Exposing what is mortal and unsure To all that fortune, death, and danger dare, Even for an egg-shell.

עמוד 130 - Exposing what is mortal and unsure To all that fortune, death and danger dare, Even for an egg-shell. Rightly to be great Is not to stir without great argument, But greatly to find quarrel in a straw When honour's at the stake.
עמוד 130 - How all occasions do inform against me, And spur my dull revenge ! What is a man, If his chief good and market of his time Be but to sleep and feed ? a beast, no more.
עמוד 121 - I believe there is no country on the face of the earth where there is less freedom of opinion on any subject in reference to which there is a broad difference of opinion, than in this.
