Strona 133 - We give thee hearty thanks, for that it hath pleased thee to deliver this our brother out of the miseries of this sinful world...
Strona 159 - Her waggon-spokes made of long spinners' legs, The cover of the wings of grasshoppers, <*> The traces of the smallest spider's web, The collars of the moonshine's watery...
Strona 158 - Good night, good night ! parting is such sweet sorrow, That I shall say — good night, till it be morrow.
Strona 12 - I'll go all the more. No : and I won't have a cab. Where do you think the money's to come from?
Strona 158 - Thou know'st the mask of night is on my face, Else would a maiden blush bepaint my cheek For that which thou hast heard me speak to-night. Fain would I dwell on form, fain, fain deny What I have spoke: but farewell compliment! Dost thou love me? I know thou wilt say 'Ay,' And I will take thy word: yet, if thou swear'st, Thou mayst prove false: at lovers' perjuries, They say, Jove laughs.
Strona 34 - How do you know what they want ? How should a man know anything at all about it? And you won't give more than ten pounds ? Very well. Then you may go shopping with it yourself, and see what you'll make of it ! I'll have none of your ten pounds, I can tell you — no sir ! No ; you've no cause to say that.
Strona 21 - Yes, it is worth talking of ! But that's how you always try to put me down. You fly into a rage, and then, if I only try to speak, you won't hear me. That's how you men always will have all the talk to yourselves: a poor woman isn't allowed to get a word in. A nice notion you have of a wife, to suppose she's nothing to think of but her husband's buttons.
Strona 13 - I'm not going out a dowdy to please you or anybody else. Gracious knows, it isn't often that I step over the threshold; indeed, I might as well be a slave at once — better, I should say.
Strona 33 - Now, Caudle, it's no use talking; those children shall not cross over the threshold next Sunday if they haven't things for the summer.
Strona 22 - That's how you men always will have all the talk to yourselves: a poor woman is n't allowed to get a word in. A nice notion you have of a wife, to suppose she's nothing to think of but her husband's buttons. A pretty notion, indeed, you have of marriage. Ha! if poor women only knew what they had to go through! — what with buttons, and one thing and another, — they'd never tie themselves up, — no, not to the best man in the world, I'm sure.
