Page 41 - INTERR'D beneath this marble stone Lie sauntering Jack and idle Joan. While rolling threescore years and one Did round this globe their courses run ; If human things went ill or well ; If changing empires rose or fell ; The morning past, the evening came, And found this couple still the same.
Page 216 - A jest's prosperity lies in the ear Of him that hears it, never in the tongue Of him that makes it: then, if sickly ears, Deaf'd with the clamour of their own dear* groans, Will hear your idle scorns, continue then. And I will have you, and that fault withal ; But, if they will not, throw away that spirit, And I shall find you empty of that fault, Right joyful of your reformation.
