Стр. 94 - The indorsement of supreme delight, Writ by a friend, and with his blood ; The couch of time ; care's balm and bay ; The week were dark, but for thy light. Thy torch doth show the way.
Стр. 11 - Be thrifty, but not covetous : therefore give Thy need, thine honour, and thy friend his due. Never was scraper brave man. Get to live ; Then live, and use it : else, it is not true That thou hast gotten. Surely use alone Makes money not a contemptible stone.
Стр. 71 - Must all be veiled, while he that reads, divines, Catching the sense at two removes? Shepherds are honest people ; let them sing : Riddle who list, for me, and pull for Prime : I envy no man's nightingale or spring ; Nor let them punish me with loss of rhyme, Who plainly say,

Стр. 81 - To sever the good fellowship of dust, And spoil the meeting. What shall point out them, When they shall bow, and kneel, and fall down flat To kiss those heaps, which now they have in trust?
Стр. xvii - London to obtain my wardship for his and her use jointly, which he obtained. Shortly after I was sent again to my studies in Oxford, where I had not been long but that an overture for a match with the daughter and heir of Sir William Herbert, of St.
Стр. 87 - MY God, a verse is not a crown, No point of honour, or gay suit, No hawk, or banquet, or renown, Nor a good sword, nor yet a lute. It cannot vault, or dance, or play ; It never was in France or Spain ; Nor can it entertain the day "With a great stable or domain.
