Side ii - What things have we seen Done at the Mermaid! Heard words that have been So nimble and so full of subtle flame As if that every one from whence they came Had meant to put his whole wit in a jest, And had resolved to live a fool the rest Of his dull life.
Side 394 - Pack, clouds, away, and welcome, day ! With night we banish sorrow ; Sweet air, blow soft ; mount, lark, aloft, To give my love good-morrow. Wings from the wind, to please her mind, Notes from the lark I'll borrow ; Bird, prune thy wing, nightingale, sing, To give my love good-morrow.
Side 69 - Frankford, well; but shall be better, I hope, within this hour. Will you vouchsafe (Out of your grace and your humanity) To take a spotted strumpet by the hand ? Frank.
Side viii - Bastard without a father to acknowledge it ; true it is that my plays are not exposed to the world in volumes, to bear the title of works (as others *) : one reason is, that many of them by shifting and change of companies, have been negligently lost. Others of them are still retained in the hands of some actors, who think it against their peculiar profit to have them come in print, and a third that it never was any great ambition in me to be in this kind voluminously read.
Side 55 - Thy name's recorded in the book of life, I charge thee never after this sad day To see me or to meet me ; or to send By word, or writing, gift, or otherwise, To move me, by thyself, or by thy friends ; Nor challenge any part in my two children.
Side 62 - These frets have made me pleasant, that have now Frets of my heart-strings made. O master Cranwell, Oft hath she made this melancholy wood (Now mute and dumb for her disastrous chance) Speak sweetly many a note, sound many a strain To her own ravishing voice, which being well strung, What pleasant strange airs have they jointly rung!
Side 37 - I have bethought me : get me by degrees The keys of all my doors, which I will mould In wax, and take their fair impression, To have by them new keys...
Side 61 - I lov'd her dearly ; And when I do but think of her unkindness, My thoughts are all in hell: to avoid which torment, I would not have a bodkin or a cuff, A bracelet, necklace, or...
Side v - ... not inferior to him. Generosity, courtesy, temperance in the depths of passion; sweetness, in a word, and gentleness; Christianism ; and true hearty Anglicism of feelings, shaping that Christianism ; shine throughout his beautiful writings in a manner more conspicuous than in those of Shakspeare, but only more conspicuous, inasmuch as in Heywood these qualities are primary, in the other subordinate to poetry.
Side xxvii - sblood ! Master, master ! Frank. Oh, me unhappy ! I have found them lying Close in each other's arms, and fast asleep. But that I would not damn two precious souls. Bought with my Saviour's blood, and send them, laden With all their scarlet sins upon their backs, Unto a fearful judgment, their two lives Had met upon my rapier.
