The way of fortune is like the milky way in the sky ; which is a meeting or knot of a number of small stars, not seen asunder, but giving light together. So are there a number of little and scarce discerned virtues, or rather faculties and customs, that make men fortunate.
Pagina 142 - But Juan had got many things to leave, His mother, and a mistress, and no wife, So that he had much better cause to grieve Than many persons more advanced in life ; And if we now and then a sigh must heave At quitting even those we quit in strife, No doubt we weep for those the heart endears...
