Сторінка 9 - Swift as a shadow, short as any dream ; Brief as the lightning in the collied night, That, in a spleen, unfolds both heaven and earth. And ere a man hath power to say, — Behold ! The jaws of darkness do devour it up : So quick bright things come to confusion.
Сторінка 134 - But the mother's consent is not had, nor the young gentlewoman's, who expecteth a great fortune from her mother, which without her consent is endangered. This match, out of my faith and freedom towards your Lordship, I hold very inconvenient both for your brother and yourself. First, He shall marry into a disgraced house, which in reason of state is never held good. Next, He shall marry into a troubled house of man and wife, which in religion and Christian discretion is disliked.
Сторінка 347 - Nothing can be more evident, than that Strafford's innocent blood hath been one of the great causes of God's just judgments upon this nation, by a furious civil war, both sides hitherto being almost equally punished, as being in a manner equally guilty...
Сторінка 124 - Thus have I now set down unto you what I would say, if I were to make my testament ; it lies in your hands to make of me what you please — either the best master and truest friend, or, if you force me once to call you ingrate, which the God of heaven forbid, no so great earthly plague can light upon you ! In a word, you may procure me to delight to give daily more and more demonstrations of my favours towards you, if the fault be not in yourself.
Сторінка 134 - Thirdly, Your lordship will go near to lose all such your friends as are adverse to Sir Edward Coke; myself only except, who out of a pure love and thankfulness shall ever be firm to you. And lastly and chiefly, believe it, it will greatly weaken and distract the king's service; for though, in regard of the king's great wisdom and depth, I am persuaded, those things will not follow which they imagine: yet opinion will do a great deal of harm, and cast the king back, and make him relapse into those...
Сторінка 317 - The misfortune that is fallen upon you by the strange mistaking and conjuncture of these times, being such that I must lay by the thought of employing you hereafter in my affairs, yet I cannot satisfy myself in honour or conscience, without assuring you (now in the midst of your troubles) that upon the word of a king you shall not suffer in life, honour, or fortune. This is but justice, and therefore a very mean reward from a master to so faithful and able a servant...
Сторінка 133 - The king falls into a passion of tears, On my soul, More, I wot not what to do ; thou art a wise man, help me in this great strait, and thou shalt find thou dost it for a thankful master ; with other sad expressions.
Сторінка 198 - I now repent me sore that ever I suffered you to go away. I care for match nor nothing so I may once have you in my arms again ; God grant it, God grant it...
Сторінка 319 - I desire that by a conference, you will endeavour to give the house of commons contentment ; assuring you that the exercise of mercy is no more pleasing to me, than to see both houses of parliament consent, for my sake, that I should moderate the severity of the law in so important a case. I will not say, that your complying with me in this my intended mercy, shall make me more willing, but certainly ' twill make me more cheerful, in granting your just grievances. But if no less than his life can...
