Page 344 - JOE MILLER'S JESTS : OR, THE WITS VADE-MECUM. Being a Collection of the most Brilliant Jests ; the Politest Repartees ; the most Elegant Bons Mots, and most pleasant short Stories in the English Language.

Page 97 - Les lois de la mort sont fatales Aussi bien aux maisons royales Qu'aux taudis couverts de roseaux ; Tous nos jours sont sujets aux Parques ; Ceux des bergers et des monarques Sont coupés des mêmes ciseaux.
Page 24 - Whom every thing becomes; to chide, to laugh, To weep ; whose every passion fully strives To make itself, in thee, fair and admired ! No messenger ; but thine and all alone, To-night, we'll wander through the streets, and note The qualities of people.
