Sida 363 - Swifter than the moon's sphere ; And I serve the fairy queen, To dew her orbs upon the green. The cowslips tall her pensioners be: In their gold coats spots you see ; Those be rubies, fairy favours, In those freckles live their savours. I must go seek some dewdrops here, And...
Sida 250 - No, faith, not a jot ; but to follow him thither with modesty enough, and likelihood to lead it: As thus; Alexander died, Alexander was buried, Alexander returneth to dust ; the dust is earth ; of earth we make loam : And why of that loam, whereto he was converted, might they not stop a beer-barrel...
Sida 381 - Behold an order yet of newer date, Doubling their number, equal in their state ; Our England's ornament, the crown's defence, In battle brave, protectors of their prince ; Unchanged by fortune, to their sovereign true, sso For which their manly legs are bound with blue.
Sida 275 - Townshend, who had encountered Elliston in the neighbourhood, inquired whether he had seen the king, as his Majesty had not been at the palace since his three o'clock dinner ; and it being then nearly five, the queen and princesses were in some little anxiety about him.

'Tis just like puss defendant in a gutter : Fine love, no doubt ; but ere two days are o'er ye, The surgeon will be told a woful story.
Sida 246 - A glass is good, and a lass is good, And a pipe to smoke in cold weather; The world is good and the people are good, And we're all good fellows together.
Sida 91 - MY DEAR SIR, — I shall be very happy to see you again the moment your engagement will permit you to return. I will either defer settling terms till we meet, or fix them with you by letter. If you prefer the latter, pray propose, and nothing that I am able to effect shall be left undone to meet your wishes. " Octavian and Sheva, you might, I am confident, repeat with increase of reputation to yourself, and advantage to the theatre.
Sida 379 - Edward was enamoured, while dancing at a high festival, accidentally slipped her garter, of blue embroidered velvet. It was picked up by her royal partner, who, noticing the significant looks of his courtiers on the occasion, used the words to them, which afterwards became the motto of the order, "Honi toit quimal y pense;" adding, that " in a short time they should see that garter advanced to so high honour and estimation , as to account themselves happy to wear it.
