Pagina 90 - I will further tell you, that all my endeavours, from a boy, to distinguish myself, were only for want of a great title and fortune, that I might be used like a Lord by those who have an opinion of my parts — whether right or wrong, it is no great matter, and so the reputation of wit or great learning does the office of a blue ribbon, or of a coach and six horses.

It will not be always et tibi quos mihi dempserit apponet annos.
Pagina 29 - I dare not venture to publish them : For however orthodox they may be while I am now writing, they may become criminal enough to bring me into trouble before midsummer.
Pagina 153 - But even this trick shall not provoke me to print the true one, which indeed is not proper to be seen till I can be seen no more...
