Seite 58 - I know the town and the world ; and give me leave to say, that we merchants are a species of gentry that have grown into the world this last century, and are as honourable, and almost as useful, as you landed folks, that have always thought yourselves so much above us; for your trading, forsooth, is extended no farther than a load of hay or a fat ox.
Seite 43 - O fatal name to Cleopatra's love ! My kisses, my embraces now are hers ; While I But thou hast seen my rival ; speak, Does she deserve this blessing ? Is she fair ? Bright as a goddess ? and is all perfection Confined to her ? It is.
Seite 47 - Men are but children of a larger growth ; Our appetites as apt to change as theirs, And full as craving too, and full as vain ; And yet the soul, shut up in her dark room, Viewing so clear abroad, at home sees nothing; But, like a mole in earth, busy and blind, Works all her folly up, and casts it outward To the world's open view...

Seite 14 - What would the fop be at now? In good time, indeed, you shall be setting up for a fortune! TOM. Dear Mrs. Phillis, you have such a spirit that we shall never be dull in marriage when we come together. But I tell you, you are a fortune, and you have an estate in my hands.
Seite 36 - Yes; when his end is so, I must join with him; Indeed I must, and yet you must not chide ; Why am I else your friend?
Seite 65 - Believe me, madam, Antony is yours. His heart was never lost, but started off To jealousy, love's last retreat and covert; Where it lies hid in shades, watchful in silence, And listening for the sound that calls it back.
Seite 38 - What, is she poison to you? — a disease? Look on her, view her well, and those she brings: Are they all strangers to your eyes?
