Strana 42 - In the worst inn's worst room, with mat half hung The floors of plaster, and the walls of dung, On once a flock-bed, but repair'd with straw, With tape-tied curtains, never meant to draw, The George and Garter dangling from that bed Where tawdry yellow strove with dirty red, Great Villiers lies...
Strana 302 - Others apart sat on a hill retired, In thoughts more elevate, and reasoned high Of providence, foreknowledge, will, and fate, Fixed fate, free will, foreknowledge absolute, And found no end, in wandering mazes lost...
Strana 29 - But ask not to what doctors I apply ; Sworn to no master, of no sect am I : As drives the storm, at any door I knock, And house with Montaigne now, or now with Locke...
Strana 8 - ... summos posse viros et magna exempla daturos vervecum in patria crassoque sub aere nasci.
Strana 49 - We conquer'd France, but felt our captive's charms ; Her arts victorious triumph'd o'er our arms ; Britain to soft refinements less a foe, Wit grew polite, and numbers learn'd to flow.

In another point they agree, — both are men of infinite titlepages.
Strana 216 - I know it," answered Wilhelm with a smile, and holding out his hand. "I accept it then," said she, and made a movement with her right hand, as if meaning to take hold of his: but instantly she darted it into her pocket, pulled out her dagger quick as lightning, and scored with the edge and point of it across his hand. He hastily drew it back, but the blood was already running down. "One must mark you men rather sharply, if one would have you take heed," cried she with a wild mirth, which soon passed...
Strana 322 - I " wish that you would consider that, if any of our men say " salvation may be had in your Church, it is not for the " goodness of your new proposition " (ie for the additions or changes interwoven with Protestantism or Primitive Christianity), " but only because you do keep so much of that " which is our religion that upon the confidence of THAT we " hope well concerning you. And we do not hope anything " at all that is good of you or your religion as it distinguishes " from us and ours : we hope...
