Page 242 - Here lies our sovereign lord the King, Whose word no man relies on, Who never said a foolish thing, And never did a wise one.
Page 347 - You write me word that I am out of favour with a certain poet, whom I have admired for the disproportion of him and his attributes. He is a rarity which I cannot but be fond of, as one would be of a hog that could fiddle, or a singing owl. If he falls on me at the blunt, which is his very good weapon in wit, I will forgive him if you please, and leave the repartee to black Will with a cudgel!
