עמוד 455 - Give me my scallop-shell of quiet, My staff of faith to walk upon. My scrip of joy, immortal diet, My bottle of salvation, My gown of glory, hope's true gage; And thus I'll take my pilgrimage.
עמוד 47 - Bedlam's Song: From the hag and hungry goblin That into rags would rend ye All the spirits that stand by the naked man In the Book of Moons defend ye! That of your five sound senses You never be forsaken Nor wander from yourselves with Tom Abroad to beg your bacon. While I do sing 'Any food, any feeding, Feeding, drink, or clothing' Come dame or maid, be not afraid, Poor Tom will injure nothing.
עמוד 44 - I may scape, I will preserve myself: and am bethought To take the basest and most poorest shape, That ever penury, in contempt of man, Brought near to beast...
עמוד 24 - But methinks he should stand in fear of fire, being burnt i' the hand for stealing of sheep. CADE Be brave, then; for your captain is brave, and vows reformation. There shall be in England seven halfpenny loaves sold for a penny: the three-hooped pot; shall have ten hoops and I will make it felony to drink small beer...
עמוד 451 - To each his sufferings: all are men, Condemned alike to groan; The tender for another's pain, The unfeeling for his own. Yet, ah! why should they know their fate? Since sorrow never comes too late, And happiness too swiftly flies. Thought would destroy their paradise. No more; where ignorance is bliss, 'Tis folly to be wise.
עמוד 423 - ... wrings my very soul to think on. For a man of high spirit, conscious of having (at least in one production) generally pleased the world, to be plagued and threatened by wretches that are low in every sense ; to be forced to drink himself into pains of the body, in order to get rid of the pains of the mind, is a misery.
עמוד 45 - ... they could not get it off. They wore about their necks a great horn of an ox, in a string or bawdry, which, when they came to a house they did wind; and they put the drink given them into this horn, whereto they put a stopple. Since the wars I do not remember to have seen any one of them.
עמוד 52 - England hath been sold in the leaf for six pounds, and sometimes for ten pounds the pound weight, and in respect of its former scarceness and dearness it hath been only used as a regalia in high treatments and entertainments, and presents made thereof to princes and grandees till the year 1 657. The said Garway did purchase a quantity thereof, and first publicly sold the said tea in leaf or drink, made according to the directions of the most knowing merchants into those Eastern countries.
עמוד 269 - I do assure you nothing the state can do with me can trouble me so much as this news of your being ill doth ; and you see when I am troubled, I trouble you too with tedious kindness ; for so I think you will account so long a letter, yourself not having written to me this good while so much as how you do.
עמוד 69 - But for refusal they devour my thrones, Distress my Children and destroy my bones. I fear they'll force me to make bread of stones.
