PÓgina 35 - God save the mark! And telling me the sovereign'st thing on earth Was parmaceti for an inward bruise; And that it was great pity, so it was, That villanous saltpetre should be digg'd Out of the bowels of the harmless earth, Which many a good tall fellow had destroy'd So cowardly ; and but for these vile guns He would himself have been a soldier.

PÓgina 47 - Of your precedent lord ; a vice of kings ; A cutpurse of the empire and the rule, That from a shelf the precious diadem stole, And put it in his pocket ! Queen.

PÓgina 26 - Dear Mrs. Coaxer, you are welcome. You look charmingly today. I hope you don't want the repairs of quality, and lay on paint. — Dolly Trull! kiss me, you slut; are you as amorous as ever, hussy?

PÓgina 38 - O villain! villain! POLLY. Am I not thy wife? Thy neglect of me, thy aversion to me, too severely proves it. Look on me. Tell me, am I not thy wife? LUCY. Perfidious wretch! POLLY. Barbarous husband! LUCY. Hadst thou been hanged five months ago, I had been happy. POLLY. And I too.

PÓgina 9 - I'll insure thee from being hanged; and going to sea, Filch, will come time enough upon a sentence of transportation. But now, since you have nothing better to do, ev'n go to your book, and learn your catechism; for really a man makes but an ill figure in the ordinary's paper, who cannot give a satisfactory answer to his questions.
PÓgina 25 - Her kisses Dissolve us in pleasure, and soft repose. I must have women. There is nothing unbends the mind like them. Money is not so strong a cordial for the time.— Drawer!
PÓgina 46 - No ceremony that to great ones 'longs, Not the king's crown, nor the deputed sword, The marshal's truncheon, nor the judge's robe, Become them with one-half so good a grace, As mercy does.
