Strona 136 - A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof (Jer.5:22-31).
Strona 25 - Good, to whom all things ill Are but as slavish officers of vengeance, Would send a glistering guardian, if need were, To keep my life and honour unassailed.

Strona 309 - Art not thou that Egyptian, which before these days madest an uproar, and leddest out into the wilderness four thousand men that were murderers...
Strona 284 - CHAPTER XXXIV The king, therefore, for his defence Against the furious queen, At Woodstock builded such a bower As never yet was seen. Most curiously that bower was built, Of stone and timber strong ; An hundred and fifty doors Did to this bower belong : And they so cunningly contrived, With turnings round about, That none but with a clew of thread Could enter in or out.
Strona 338 - Yet what can they see in the longest kingly line in Europe, save that it runs back to a successful soldier...
