Seite 2 - The place is dignified by the doer's deed ; Where great additions swell 's, and virtue none, It is a dropsied honour. Good alone Is good without a name. Vileness is so; The property by what it is should go, Not by the title.
Seite 29 - To wit, that each should work his own desire, And eat, drink, study, sleep, as it may fall, Or melt the time in love, or wake the lyre, And carol what, unhid, the muses might inspire.
