Стр. 148 - I directly advise you to go upon the road, which is the only post of honour left you : there you will meet many of your old comrades, and live a short life and a merry one, and make a figure at your exit, wherein I will give you some instructions.
Стр. 320 - He said, that the difference betwixt a mad-man and one in his wits, in what related to speech, consisted in this : That the former spoke out whatever came into his mind, and just in the confused manner as his imagination presented the ideas. The latter only expressed such thoughts, as his judgment directed him to chuse, leaving the rest to die away in his memory.

Стр. 256 - But none of these defects derive contempt to the speaker : whereas, what we call the Irish brogue is no sooner discovered, than it makes the deliverer in the last degree ridiculous and despised ; and, from such a mouth, an Englishman expects nothing but bulls, blunders, and follies.
Стр. 352 - It is generally believed that this author has advanced our English tongue to as great a perfection as it can well bear...
