Sida 45 - Come on, sir. Now you set your foot on shore In Novo Orbe ; here's the rich Peru : And there within, sir, are the golden mines, Great Solomon's Ophir!
Sida 451 - In good set terms and yet a motley fool. '.Good morrow, fool,' quoth I. ' No, sir,' quoth he, ' Call me not fool till heaven hath sent me fortune : ' And then he drew a dial from his poke, And, looking on it with lack-lustre eye, Says very wisely, ' It is ten o'clock : Thus we may see...
Sida 48 - Why? Do you think I fable with you? I assure you.

Sida 191 - Sejanus you may take notice of the scene betwixt Livia and the physician which is a pleasant satire upon the artificial helps of beauty: in Catiline you may see the parliament of women; the little envies of them to one another; and all that passes betwixt Curio and Fulvia: scenes admirable in their kind, but of an ill mingle with the rest.
Sida 32 - And therefore Face. Why, this changes quite the case. Do you think that I dare move him ? Dap. If you please, sir ; All's one to him, I see. Face. What ! for that money ? I cannot with my conscience ; nor should you Make the request, methinks. Dap. No, sir, I mean To add consideration. Face. Why then, sir, I'll try.
Sida 308 - It scarcely seems necessary to enlarge on a story so familiar; but it may not be amiss to say a few words on the treatment which this tragedy has received.
