Pagina 86 - Observe me, Sir Anthony. I would by no means wish a daughter of mine to be a progeny of learning ; I don't think so much learning becomes a young woman ; for instance, I would never let her meddle with Greek, or Hebrew, or Algebra, or Simony, or Fluxions, or Paradoxes, or such inflammatory branches of learning...
Pagina 102 - I'll tell you what, Jack — I mean, you dog — if you don't, by Abs. What, sir, promise to link myself to some mass of ugliness ! to Sir Anth. Zounds! sirrah! the lady shall be as ugly as I choose : she shall have a hump on each shoulder ; she shall be as crooked as the crescent ; her one eye shall roll like the bull's in Cox's Museum ; she shall have a skin like a mummy, and the beard of a Jew — she shall be all this, sirrah ! — yet I will make you ogle her all day, and sit up all night to...
Pagina 250 - Fore Heaven ! I find one's ancestors are more valuable relations than I took them for ! — Ladies and gentlemen, your most obedient and very grateful servant.
Pagina 278 - Why, as to reforming, sir Peter, I'll make no promises, and that I take to be a proof that I intend to set about it. But here shall be my monitor — my gentle guide — ah ! can I leave the virtuous path those eyes illumine...

Pagina 152 - How mortifying to remember the dear delicious shifts I used to be put to, to gain half a minute's conversation with this fellow ! How often have I stole forth in the coldest night in January, and found him in the garden stuck like a dripping statue ! There would he kneel to me in the snow, and sneeze and cough, so pathetically!
Pagina 216 - That's very true indeed, Sir Peter; and, after having married you, I should never pretend to taste again, I allow.
Pagina 208 - tis very vulgar to print ; and, as my little productions are mostly satires and lampoons on particular people, I find they circulate more by giving copies in confidence to the friends of the parties.
Pagina 85 - In my way hither, Mrs. Malaprop, I observed your niece's maid coming forth from a circulating library! — She had a book in each hand — they were half-bound volumes, with marble covers! — from that moment I guessed how full of duty I should see her mistress ! Mrs.
Pagina 84 - What business have you, miss, with preference and aversion? They don't become a young woman; and you ought to know that, as both always wear off, 'tis safest, in matrimony, to begin with a little aversion. I am sure I hated your poor dear uncle before marriage as if he'd been a blackamoor, and yet, miss, you are sensible what a wife I made; and, when it pleased heaven to release me from him, 'tis unknown what tears I shed ! Sirs.
