Page 124 - Friendship is constant in all other things Save in the office and affairs of love: Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues; Let every eye negotiate for itself, And trust no agent; for beauty is a witch, Against whose charms faith melteth into blood.
Page 96 - Thou worft invader of our tender bofoms ; How does thy rancour poifon all, our foftnefs, And turn our gentle natures into bitternefs? See where fhe comes ! Once my heart's deareft blefling, Now my chang'd eyes are blafted with her beauty, Loathe that known face, and ficken to behold her.
Page 185 - Reason and Love, I know, could ne'er agree ; Both would command, and both superior be.
Page 69 - First flatter'd with his tongue ; on her that first Dissembled in her silence. What miseries have they entail'd on life, To bring in fraud and diffidence in love ! Simplicity's the dress of honest passion ; Then why our arts, why to a man enamour'd, That at our feet effuses all his soul, Must woman cold apjwar, false to herself and him '! Sttele.
