Strana 108 - As thou art in desire? Wouldst thou have that Which thou esteemst the ornament of life, And live a coward in thine own esteem, Letting "I dare not" wait upon "I would," Like the poor cat i
Strana 101 - ... come, he will send. There are others of the same family, as the following : The devil's meal is half bran ; or all bran, as the Italians still more boldly proclaim it;* unrighteous gains are sure to disappoint the getter ; the pleasures of sin, even in this present time, are largely dashed with its pains. And this? He had need of a long spoon that eats with the devil...
Strana 69 - ... are given, Sound, healthy children of the God of heaven, Are cheerful as the rising sun in May. What do we gather hence but firmer faith That every gift of noble origin Is breathed upon by Hope's perpetual breath ? That virtue and the faculties within Are vital, — and that riches are akin To fear, to change, to cowardice and death...
Strana 29 - Keep off, or you'll smutch me /"* the Spaniards, The raven cried to the crow, "Avaunt, blackamoor ;"f the Germans, One ass nicknames another, " Long-ears /"J while it must be owned there is a certain originality in the Catalan version of the proverb : Death said to the man with his throat cut, "How ugly you look.

Strana 109 - Muraille blanche, papier des sots. Add further, a few which occupy two lines : Argue consultum, te diliget ; argue stultum, Avertet vultum, nee te dimittet inultum. Balnea cornici non prosunt, nee meretrici ; Nee meretrix munda, nee cornix alba fit unda.
