Pagina 134 - I had, — but man is but a patched fool, if he will offer to say what methought I had. The eye of man hath not heard, the ear of man hath not seen, man's hand is not able to taste, his tongue to conceive, nor...
Pagina 207 - HEAR this, all ye people ; Give ear, all ye inhabitants of the world : Both low and high, Rich and poor, together.
Pagina 71 - Pale as his shirt; his knees knocking each other; And with a look so piteous in purport, As if he had been loosed out of hell, To speak of horrors, — he comes before me.
