Page 84 - Thus must we toil in other men's extremes, That know not how to remedy our own; And do them justice, when unjustly we, For all our wrongs, can compass no redress. But shall I never live to see the day, That I may come, by justice of the heavens, To know the cause that may my cares allay?

Page 54 - No, no, it was some woman cried for help ; And here within this garden did she cry ; And in this garden must I rescue her. — But stay, what murd'rous spectacle is this ? A man hang'd up and all the murd'rers gone ! 10 And in my bower, to lay the guilt on me ! This place was made for pleasure, not for death.
Page 116 - Search thou the book. Had the moon shone in my boy's face, there was a kind of grace, That I know, nay I do know, had the murderer seen him, His weapon would have fallen and cut the earth, Had he been formed of naught but blood and death.
Page 86 - So I should go out Of this gear, my raiment, into that gear, the rope : But, hangman, now I spy your knavery ; I'll not change without boot, that's flat.
