Strana 130 - In our study of Anatomy there is a mass of mysterious Philosophy, and such as reduced the very Heathens to Divinity...
Strana 18 - As I WALKED through the wilderness of this world, I lighted on a certain place where was a Den, and I laid me down in that place to sleep: and as I slept I dreamed a dream.

Strana 78 - A character was good anywhere, in a room or on paper. But we abhorred insipidity, affectation, and fine gentlemen. There was one of our party who never failed to mark " two for his Nob " at cribbage, and he was thought no mean person.
Strana 116 - Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out.
Strana 142 - To be knaved out of our graves, to have our skulls made drinking-bowls and our bones turned into pipes, to delight and sport our enemies, are tragical abominations, escaped in burning burials.
