Strana 7 - I know you all, and will a while uphold The unyok'd humour of your idleness : Yet herein will I imitate the sun ; Who doth permit the base contagious clouds To smother up his beauty from the world, That, when he please again to be himself, Being wanted, he may be more wonder'd at, By breaking through the foul and ugly mists Of vapours, that did seem to strangle him. If all the year were playing holidays, To sport would be as tedious as to work ; But, when they seldom come, they wish'd-for come, And...
Strana xxii - Let him that is yet unacquainted with the powers of Shakespeare, and who desires to feel the highest pleasure that the drama can give, read every play, from the first scene to the last, with utter negligence of all his commentators.
Strana 22 - I saw young Harry, with his beaver on, His cuisses on his thighs, gallantly arm'd, Rise from the ground like feather'd Mercury, And vaulted with such ease into his seat As if an angel dropp'd down from the clouds, To turn and wind a fiery Pegasus, And witch the world with noble horsemanship.

Strana 10 - Nay, that's past praying for: I have peppered two of them ; two I am sure I have paid, two rogues in buckram suits.
Strana 24 - Wednesday. Doth he feel it ? No. Doth he hear it ? No. Is it insensible then ? Yea, to the dead. But will it not live with the living ? No. Why ! Detraction will not suffer it : — therefore I 'll none of it : Honour is a mere scutcheon, and so ends my catechism.
Strana 3 - I'll read you matter deep and dangerous As full of peril and adventurous spirit As to o'er-walk a current, roaring loud, On the unsteadfast footing of a spear.
