Seite 89 - And again, he adviseth to Circumspection and Care, even in the smallest Matters, because sometimes a little Neglect "may breed great Mischief, adding, for want of a Nail, the Shoe was lost ; for want of a Shoe the Horse was lost ; and for want of a Horse the Rider was lost, being overtaken and slain by the Enemy, all for want of Care about a Horse-shoe Nail.
Seite 79 - Too little payment for so great a debt. Such duty as the subject owes the prince, Even such, a woman oweth to her husband: And when she's froward, peevish, sullen, sour, And not obedient to his loving will, What is she, but a foul contending rebel, And graceless traitor to her loving lord...
Seite 41 - My leading design has been, to illustrate what may be called the moral sense of our ancestors. To show in what manner they felt, when they placed themselves by the power of imagination in trying situations, in the conflicts of duty and passion, or the strife of contending duties ; what sort of loves and enmities theirs were ; how their griefs were tempered, and their full-swoln joys abated...
Seite 30 - Always taking out of the meal-tub, and never putting in, soon comes to the bottom, as Poor Richard says; and then, When the well is dry, they know the worth of water. But this they might have known before, if they had taken his advice. If you would know the value of money, go and try to borrow some; for he that goes a borrowing goes a sorrowing...
Seite 149 - Her sister? Confusion! - You must not think of it, Sir John. SIR JOHN: Not think of it? I can think of nothing else. Nay, tell me, Lovewell, was it possible for me to be indulged in a perpetual intercourse with two such objects as Fanny and her sister, and not find my heart led by insensible attraction towards her?
Seite 94 - Or entertain'st a hope to blast my wishes, Thou art a traitor, Arcite, and a fellow False as thy title to her : friendship, blood, And all the ties between us, I disclaim, If thou once think upon her ! Arc.
Seite 89 - Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other, as Poor Richard says, and scarce in that, for it is true We may give advice, but we cannot give conduct. However, remember this, They that will not be counselled cannot be helped; and further, that If you will not hear Reason, she will surely rap your knuckles, as Poor Richard says.
Seite 199 - Even they that make us weep, do weep themselves. Be these thy body's balm ; these, and thy virtue, — Keep thy fame ever odoriferous, Whilst the great, proud, rich, undeserving man, Alive stinks in his vices, and, being...
Seite 172 - Be in itself the less or greater crime : Howe'er we may deceive ourselves or others, We act from inclination, not by rule, Or none could act amiss. And that all err, None but the conscious hypocrite denies. O, what is man, his excellence and strength, When, in an hour of trial and desertion, Reason, his noblest power, may be suborned To plead the cause of vile assassination ! Agnes.
Seite 157 - I am very cold, and all the stars are out too, The little stars and all, that look like aglets. The sun has seen my folly. Palamon! Alas, no; he's in heaven. Where am I now?
