Pagina 77 - Then he fell to singing the favourite song he learned from his father — for the last time, poor gentleman — he sung it that night as loud and as hearty as ever with a chorus : " He that goes to bed, and goes to bed sober, Falls as the leaves do, falls as the leaves do, and dies in October ; But he that goes to bed, and goes to bed mellow, Lives as he ought to do, lives as he ought to do, and dies an honest fellow." Sir Patrick died that night : just as the company rose to drink his health with...
Pagina 221 - Be she meeker, kinder, than fhe turtle-dove or pelican : If she be not so to me, What care I how kind she be? Shall a woman's virtues move Me to perish for her love?

Myself my sepulchre, a moving grave ; Buried, yet not exempt, By privilege of death and burial, From worst of other evils, pains, and wrongs; But made hereby obnoxious more To all the miseries of life, Life in captivity Among inhuman foes.
Pagina 362 - God and his Son except, Created thing nought valued he nor shunn'd — And with disdainful look thus first began : 680 "Whence and what art thou, execrable Shape, That darest, though grim and terrible, advance Thy miscreated front athwart my way To yonder gates? Through them I mean to pass, That be assured, without leave ask'd of thee.
