Pagina 32 - Peter, good nature becomes you — you look now as you did before we were married, when you used to walk with me under the elms, and tell me stories of what a gallant you were in your youth, and chuck me under the chin, you would...
Pagina 32 - And you shall no longer reproach me with not giving you an independent settlement. I mean shortly to surprise you : — but shall we always live thus, hey!
Pagina 23 - Yes, egad, they are tenacious of reputation with a vengeance ; for they don't choose anybody should have a character but themselves ! — Such a crew ! Ah ! many a wretch has rid on a hurdle who has done less mischief than these utterers of forged tales, coiners of scandal, and clippers of reputation.
Pagina 28 - Why, sir, I will inform Charles and his brother that Stanley has obtained permission to apply personally to his friends; and, as they have neither of them ever seen him, let Sir Oliver assume his character, and he will have a fair opportunity of judging, at least, of the benevolence of their dispositions: and believe me, sir, you will find in the youngest brother one who, in the midst of folly and dissipation, has still, as our immortal bard expresses it, — "a heart to pity, and a hand Open as...

Pagina 33 - There now! you — you are going on. You don't perceive, my life, that you are just doing the very thing which you know always makes me angry.
Pagina 72 - 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.

Though thou, dear maid, shouldst waive thy beauty's sway, Thou still must rule, because I will obey : An humble fugitive from folly view, No sanctuary near but love and you ; [To the audience. You can, indeed, each anxious fear remove, For even Scandal dies if you approve.
Pagina 22 - Yes, yes, madam, you were then in somewhat a humbler style : — the daughter of a plain country squire.
