Page 20 - I remember? why, she would hang on him, As if increase of appetite had grown By what it fed on ; and yet, within a month Let me not think on't.
Page 102 - Ecstasy! My pulse, as yours, doth temperately keep time, And makes as healthful music. It is not madness That I have utter'd : bring me to the test, And I the matter will re-word, which madness Would gambol from.
