Pagina 514 - And at a shock have scattered the forest of his pikes. Fast, fast, the gallants ride, in some safe nook to hide Their coward heads, predestined to rot on Temple Bar; And he— he turns, he flies : — shame on those cruel eyes That bore to look on torture, and dare not look on war.
Pagina 200 - All you that in the condemned hold do lie, Prepare you, for tomorrow you shall die; Watch all and pray, the hour is drawing near, That you before the Almighty must appear; Examine well yourselves, in time repent, That you may not to eternal flames be sent. And when St. Sepulchre's bell tomorrow tolls, The Lord above have mercy on your souls. Past twelve o'clock!
Pagina 304 - I never look at it," said Catherine, as they walked along the side of the river, "without thinking of the south of France.
Pagina 369 - But how shall I describe Netley to you ? I can only, by telling you that it is the spot in the world for which Mr. Chute and I wish. The ruins are vast, and retain fragments of beautiful fretted roofs pendent in the air, with all variety of Gothic patterns of windows wrapped round and round with ivy...

And if these men and women be a month in their pilgrimage, many of them shall be an half year after great janglers, tale-tellers, and liars.
Pagina 412 - A minister," the godly Blue Dick tells us, modestly forbearing to name himself, "was on top of the city ladder, near sixty steps high, with a whole pike in his hand, rattling down proud Becket's glassy bones, when others present would not venture so high." Of course, of course, it is all abominable enough, but it is not contemptible. The Puritans were not doing this sort of thing for fun, though undoubtedly they got fun out of it. They believed truly they were serving God...
Pagina 459 - What do you mean ? Would you have me find one to cut off my head ?" Smith said, " Yes, my Lord, if you could have a friend." My Lord said, " Nay, Sir, if those men that would have my head, will not find one to cut it off, let it stand where it is.
Pagina 508 - Know, moreover, that you are my children in God. Neither law nor reason allows you to judge your father. I therefore decline your tribunal, and refer my quarrel to the decision of the Pope. To him I appeal and shall now, under the protection of the Catholic Church and the apostolic see, depart.
Pagina 182 - Son William, if you and your friends keep to your plain way of preaching, and keep to your plain way of living, you will make an end of the priests to the end of the world.
