Strana 270 - Oft expectation fails, and most oft there Where most it promises ; and oft it hits, Where hope is coldest, and despair most sits.
Strana 22 - Shakespeare that from his works may be collected a system of civil and economical prudence ; yet his real power is not shown in the splendour of particular passages, but by the progress of his fable and the tenor of his dialogue ; and he that tries to recommend him by select quotations, will succeed like the pedant in Hierocles, who, when he offered his house to sale, carried a brick in his pocket as a specimen.

Strana 191 - Tis physic, clothing, music, meat, and drink. Gods would have revell'd at their feats of Mirth With this pure distillation of the Earth ; The Marrow of the World, Star of the West, The Pearl whereby this lower Orb is blest ; The Joy of Mortals, Umpire of all Strife, Delight of Nature, Mithridate of Life ; The daintiest dish of a delicious feast, By taking which Man differs from a beast.
