Strona ix - Did both find, helpers to their hearts' desire, And stuff at hand, plastic as they could wish, — Were called upon to exercise their skill, Not in Utopia, — subterranean fields, — Or some secreted island, Heaven knows where! But in the very world, which is the world Of all of us, — the place where, in the end, We find our happiness, or not at all...
Strona xxii - The generall end therefore of all the booke is to fashion a gentleman or noble person in vertuous and gentle discipline...
Strona xxx - Queene to assygne her some one of her knights to take on him that exployt. Presently that clownish person upstarting, desired that adventure ; whereat the Queene much wondering, and the Lady much gainesaying, yet he earnestly importuned his desire.

Strona 116 - Who seem'd of riper years than the other swain, Yet was that other swain this elder's sire, And gave him being, common to them twain : His garment was disguised very vain, And his embroidered bonnet sat awry ; Twixt both his hands few sparks he close did strain, Which still he blew, and kindled busily, That soon they life conceiv'd and forth in flames did fly.
