Стр. 38 - Ambition this shall tempt to rise, Then whirl the wretch from high, To bitter Scorn a sacrifice, And grinning Infamy. The stings of Falsehood those shall try, And hard Unkindness...
Стр. 128 - Pray, do not mock me : I am a very foolish fond old man, Fourscore and upward, not an hour more nor less ; And, to deal plainly, I fear I am not in my perfect mind.
Стр. 129 - And, to deal plainly, I fear I am not in my perfect mind. Methinks I should know you, and know this man; Yet I am doubtful; for I am mainly ignorant What place this is; and all the skill I have Remembers not these garments; nor I know not Where I did lodge last night.

Стр. 253 - With oppressed feelings, heart-rending to my friends, and triumphant to my enemies, I make an appeal to that country famed for hospitality to the stranger, and mercy to the conquered. Allow me to say...
Стр. 121 - Now, gentle Gods, give Gloster his Discharge. LEAR No, Gloster, Thou hast Business yet for Life; Thou Kent and I, retir'd to some cool Cell Will gently pass our short reserves of Time In calm Reflections on our Fortunes past, Cheer'd with relation of the prosperous Reign Of this celestial Pair; Thus our Remains Shall in an even Course of Thought be past, Enjoy the present Hour, nor fear the Last.
Стр. 389 - Let us be no longer fools. Come home. Forget and forgive! If I have erred, it was my head, not my heart, and most severely have I suffered for it. My future life shall be employed in contributing to your happiness ; and you, I trust, will return that feeling, by a total obliteration of the past. " Your wild, " But really affectionate husband, "EDMUND KEAN.
