Strona 46 - don't be angry, I am sure I never thought you so ; You know I honour the cloth ; I design to be a Parson's wife ; I never took one in your coat for a conjurer in all my life.
Strona 111 - Of land, set out to plant a wood. Well, now I have all this and more, I ask not to increase my store ; But here a grievance seems to lie, All this is mine but till I die ; 10 I can't but think 'twould sound more clever, To me and to my heirs for ever.
Strona 115 - How think you of our friend the Dean ? I wonder what some people mean? My lord and he are grown so great, Always together tete-a-tete ; What ! they admire him for his jokes ! — See but the fortune of some folks...

Strona 72 - A bedstead of the antique mode, Compact of timber many a load, Such as our ancestors did use, Was metamorphos'd into pews, Which still their ancient nature keep, By lodging folks dispos'd to sleep.
Strona 127 - Incapable of outward stains : From whence that decency of mind, So lovely in the female kind, "Where not one careless thought intrudes, Less modest than the speech of prudes ; Where never blush was call'd in aid, That spurious virtue in a maid, A virtue but at second-hand ; They blush, because they understand.

Strona 141 - To form and cultivate her mind. He hardly knew, till he was told, Whether the nymph were young or old ; Had met her in a public place, Without distinguishing her face...
