Side 199 - By heaven, methinks it were an easy leap, To pluck bright honour from the pale-faced moon, Or dive into the bottom of the deep, Where fathom-line could never touch the ground, And pluck up drowned honour by the locks...
Side 423 - I count religion but a childish toy And hold there is no sin but ignorance.
Side 6 - Tu proverai si come sa di sale Lo pane altrui, e com' e duro calle Lo scendere e '1 salir per 1
