Seite 45 - But if a man live many years, and rejoice in them all; yet let him remember the days of darkness; for they shall be many.
Seite 77 - But so great performance of a comical part was never, I believe, in the world before as Nell do this, both as a mad girle, then most and best of all when she comes in like a young gallant ; and hath the motions and carriage of a spark the most that ever I saw any man have. It makes me, I confess, admire her.
Seite 191 - He did content himself mightily in my liking his boy's reading, and did bless God for him the most like one of the old patriarchs that ever I saw in my life, and it brought those thoughts of the old age of the world in my mind for two or three days after.
Seite 299 - Court there : and the most innocent play that ever I saw ; and a curious piece of musick2 in an echo of half sentences, the echo repeating the former half, while the man goes on to the latter ; which is mighty pretty. The play has no great wit, but yet good, above ordinary plays.
Seite 387 - But that which did please me beyond anything in the whole world, was the wind-musique when the angel comes down ; which is so sweet that it ravished me, and indeed, in a word, did wrap up my soul so that it made me really sick, just as I have formerly been when in love with my wife...
Seite 57 - Stewart, very fine, with her locks done up with puffes, as my wife calls them : and several other great ladies had their hair so, though I do not like it ; but my wife do mightily — but it is only because she sees it is the fashion.
Seite 209 - Falmouth ; the King is mad at her entertaining Jermin, and she is mad at Jermin's going to marry from her: so they are all mad ! — and thus the kingdom is governed...
Seite 175 - Home, and there find my wife making of tea; a drink which Mr. Felling, the Potticary, tells her is good for her cold and defluxions.
Seite 10 - The first died upon the place, and the other very well, and likely to do well. This did give occasion to many pretty wishes, as of the blood of a Quaker to be let into an Archbishop, and such like ; but, as Dr. Croone says, may, if it takes, be of mighty use to man's health, for the amending of bad blood by borrowing from a better body.
Seite 207 - Bellasses so much, that it is feared he will die. And finding himself severely wounded, he called to Tom Porter, and kissed him, and bade him shift for himself; 'for/ says he, ' Tom, thou hast hurt me ; but I will make shift to stand on my legs till thou mayest withdraw, and the world not take notice of thee ; for I would not have thee troubled for what thou hast done.
