Seite 6 - I hither but to that intent? Think you a little din can daunt my ears? Have I not in my time heard lions roar? Have I not heard the sea, puffed up with winds, Rage like an angry boar chafed with sweat?
Seite 11 - Katharine, as she calls me, Can make her husband stoop unto her lure, And hold her head as high, and be as proud As she, or e'er a wife in Padua. As double as my portion be my scorn !
