Сторінка 184 - When the bookseller offered Milton five pounds for his Paradise Lost, he did not reject it, and commit his poem to the flames ; nor did he accept the miserable pittance as the reward of his labor. He knew that the real price of his work was immortality, and that posterity would pay it.
Сторінка 55 - It's no great matter whether I see them to-night, or not, for nine of them have such bad constitutions that all the physicians in the world can't save them ; and the other six have such good constitutions that all the physicians in the world can't kill them.
Сторінка 504 - How now, are you up yet?" was greeted with the angry retort : "Nay, what do you do here at this time of night? Will you never leave the company of that loose woman? And seeing that you do so neglect my advice, I desire that tomorrow morning we may part; and that you will let me have that portion which is due to me; and then I will leave you free to yourself, to stand on your own legs.
