251 ページ - The blameless life, the artless tenderness, the pious simplicity, the modest resignation, the patient sickness, and the quiet death, are remembered only to add value to the loss, to aggravate regret for what cannot be amended, to deepen sorrow for what cannot be recalled.
28 ページ - If he prevail, he shall hardly receive the half, And he will count as if he had found it: If not, he hath deprived him of his money, And he hath gotten him an enemy without cause: He payeth him with cursings and railings ; And for honour he will pay him disgrace.
112 ページ - Yet the man thus corrupt, thus despicable, makes himself necessary to the prince that despises him by the most pleasing of all qualities, perpetual gaiety, by an unfailing power of exciting laughter, which is the more freely indulged as his wit is not of the splendid or ambitious kind, but consists in easy scapes and sallies of levity, which make sport but raise no envy.

28 ページ - Many, when a thing was lent them, reckoned it to be found, and put them to trouble that helped them. Till he hath received, he will kiss a man's hand; and for his neighbour's money he will speak submissly: but when he should repay, he will prolong the time, and return words of grief, and complain of the time.
391 ページ - I have lost the pleasantest, and, for the last four or five years of his short life, one of the most instructive companions, that ever man was delighted with.* But, " the Lord gave ; the Lord hath taken away ; blessed be the name of the Lord."

351 ページ - In my opinion,' (fays that judicious obferver) • of all the countries in Europe where I was ever acquainted, the government is no where fo well managed, the people no where lefs...
106 ページ - There is a history in all men's lives, Figuring the nature of the times deceas'd ; The which observ'd, a man may prophesy, With a near aim, of the main chance of things As yet not come to life, which in their seeds And weak beginnings lie intreasured. Such things become the hatch and brood of time...
185 ページ - ... of all to discourse of those primary pleasures of the imagination, which entirely proceed from such objects as are before our eyes ; and in the next place to speak of those secondary pleasures of the imagination which flow from the ideas of visible objects, when the objects are not actually before the eye, but are called up into our memories, or formed into agreeable visions of things that are either absent or fictitious.
252 ページ - The precepts of Epicurus, who teaches us to endure what the laws of the universe make necessary, may silence, but not content us. The dictates of Zeno, who commands us to look with, indifference on external things, may dispose us to conceal our sorrow, but cannot assuage it.
