Page 233 - For woman is not undevelopt man, But diverse : could we make her as the man, Sweet love were slain : his dearest bond is this, Not like to like, but like in difference. Yet in the long years liker must they grow ; The man be more of woman, she of man...
Page 172 - MEN in great place are thrice servants: servants of the sovereign or state; servants of fame; and servants of business. So as they have no freedom ; neither in their persons, nor in their actions, nor in their times.

Page 201 - Just tells the pensive pilgrim where it lay. Mute is the bell that rung at peep of dawn, Quickening my truant feet across the lawn : Unheard the shout that rent the noontide air When the slow dial gave a pause to care.
