Page 472 - God! methinks it were a happy life, To be no better than a homely swain; To sit upon a hill, as I do now, To carve out dials quaintly, point by point, Thereby to see the minutes how they run, How many make the hour full complete; How many hours bring about the day; How many days will finish up the year; How many years a mortal man may live.
Page 28 - Windsor, thou didst swear to me then, as I was washing thy wound, to marry me and make me my lady thy wife. Canst thou deny it ? Did not goodwife Keech, the butcher's wife, come in then and call me gossip Quickly?
Page 399 - Cheapside shall my palfrey go to grass: and when I am king, as king I will be, ALL God save your majesty!

Page 535 - And so I was ; which plainly signified That I should snarl, and bite, and play the dog. ' Then, since the Heavens have shaped my body so, Let hell make crook'd my mind to answer it. I have no brother, I am like no brother : ' And this word, love, which greybeards call divine, Be resident in men like one another, And not in me ; I am myself alone.
